Paper Abstract

Multislice fluoro-CT allows 3 dimensional millimetric precision in needle guidance and placement. The main benefit of this technique is a volumetric approach with precise management of the patient's Z-axis. This allows performing fast procedures, low x-ray exposure of the patient, central needle positioning inside the disc, absence of radicular lesion, absence of technical failure of the procedure. It can be considered therefore as the safest technique to perform fast and efficient Percutaneous Laser Disc Decompression (PLDD).
