Advantages of CT Guided Injections

UCSF Radiologist Dr Dillon describes the use of CT-image guided injections not only allow for precise positioning at the time of the injections but also for more effective injections at harder to reach places.

Outcomes of this technique and one study SNRB/ESI Outcomes Results

  • At mean 23 month follow-up, significant difference in operative rates between two groups (p<.004)
    • Anesthetic-only: 9/27 elected not to have surgery
    • Steroid + anesthetic: 20/27 elected not to have surgery
  • Steroid injections should be considered prior to surgical intervention
