This multimedia handbook and video atlas provides an interactive learning experience for practitioners who perform interventional procedures with radiographic guidance for acute or chronic pain. The print text is a formatted portable reference for reviewing anatomy, indications, physical examination findings, set-up, technique, and risks and complications for a wide range of head, neck, spine, and pelvic interventions.
Buyers receive a downloadable enhanced ebook with purchase which includes high quality procedural videos with voice-over narration, putting you in the operating suite as each procedure unfolds. Shot from the perspective of the interventionalist with a split screen view of the fluoroscopic images, the videos demonstrate real-time decision making as the moving of the practitioner's hands is correlated with the positioning and progression of the needle to the target. These videos offer the opportunity to "stand in" on actual procedures with an expert, and demonstrate proper injection technique, effective targeting, and live contrast review to build skills in interventional pain management.
