Interventional Radiology

Epidural Steroid injection -

Image guidance is used to sterilely inject a small amount of steroid agent near the area of inflammation within the epidural space to reduce pain.  This is done often in an attempt to avoid surgery.

 

At times the main intent is to isolate the cause of pain (diagnostic injections) ,

other times the intent is simply to remove pain (therapeutic injection).
