Neuroimaging Clin N Am. 2000 Aug;10(3):579-96.


Diskography has become a vital study in the evaluation of spinal pain, particularly in patients who are considered candidates for possible surgical intervention. It has been the author's experience that when diskography is performed with appropriate clinical indication by skilled and experienced practitioners who are thoroughly familiar with spinal pathology, the results lead to improved clinical outcomes. Diskography is a study ideally suited for procedural radiologists.
