RMI provides a range of neuro-interventional procedures to diagnose and treat spine disorders, such as osteoporosis, tumors, compression fractures, infections, or chronic back pain.
Myelography with Post-Myelographic CT (Computed Tomography)
Uses an injection of contrast material to enable doctors to view the spine, looking for signs of disease or injury to the spinal cord.
An image-guided procedure that uses a needle to extract a small amount of tissue to test for cancer in the spinal column.
Discography with Manometry
Uses injected contrast material, a CT scanner, and a small probe to study the condition of the discs between the vertebrae (bones that make up the spine).
Disc Aspiration Biopsy
Uses X-Rays to guide a needle that extracts a small amount of tissue from one or more discs to test for possible infection.
Spinal and Pain Management Procedures
Epidural Steroid Injections
Uses X-Rays to guide the injection of a steroid medication to relieve pain from inflamed nerves in the spine.
Nerve or Facet Blocks
X-Ray-guided injection of a steroid medication to relieve pain originating in or transmitted through spinal nerves or joints.
Injection, under X-Ray guidance, of a special cement into an area of the spine to repair small fractures or cavities in bones, caused by injury or disorders such as osteoporosis.
