Summary

For some time now, C-arm fluoroscopy-guided spinal injections have been performed widely for both the diagnosis and management of spinal and paraspinal pain. Despite this common use, many residents and pain fellows do not receive any training in the anatomy of the vertebral column as it relates to radiographic imaging, nor do they receive training in fluorscopic imaging. While books already exist on the subject, they only show the final needle position and offer very limited instruction.
