Progress your skills with didactic lectures and cadaveric labs for demonstration of anatomic fluoroscopic structure in correlation with the various lumbar spinal injection procedures and techniques. Hear about some of the literature surrounding injection procedures as well as the associated risks and how to avoid them.

Lab procedures include Needle/Bevel control, Interlaminar/Caudal epidural steroid injections, Tranforaminal epidural steroid injections/Selective nerve root blocks, Medial branch block injections/Intra-articular Z-joint, Sacroiliac joint injections, and Lumbar radiofrequency ablation techniques. Additionally, there is one hour of open lab time to hone your skills.

What you will learn:

  • Summarize the role of each injection in the overall care and rehabilitation of the spine patient
  • Describe contraindications to the performance of the procedure
  • Assess potential complications associated with each procedure
  • Differentiate technical parameters in the performance of each procedure
  • Demonstrate anatomy and safe radiological principles involved in each injection
  • Gain insight into the correct coding procedures for commonly used injection codes
