What is a fluoroscopy-guided infiltration?

Fluoroscopy-guided infiltration allows the health care professional to see the bones and joints and verify their manoeuvres during the procedure. The following infiltrations are performed using fluoroscopy:

  • Intra-articular
  • Foraminal (or selective epidural) lumbar blocks
  • Facet blocks (cervical, dorsal and lumbar)
  • Sacroiliac infiltrations
  • Intra-discal and facet PRP injections

Preparation

No preparation is required before a fluoroscopy-guided infiltration.
