C-Arm Guided Procedures

Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that produces images similar to an X-ray These images can be dynamic to allow live monitoring of a procedure or still images to confirm that the target area has been successfully treated. Using fluoroscopy has significantly helped to deliver safer treatments and reduce the overall risks involved.

A fluoroscopic guided injection involves injecting the medications directly into an area of the body, such as joints, muscles, and around major nerves.

Procedures performed with C-arm

It’s possible to perform many types of interventions and injection treatments. Such treatments can significantly help with spinal, arm, leg, joint, and nerve-type pains. Some of the procedures include:

  • Radiofrequency denervation of the lumbar, thoracic, or cervical facet and sacroiliac joints
  • All forms of epidural injections
  • Sympathetic nerve ablation
  • Pulsed radiofrequency of the spinal nerves and knee, hip, wrist, and shoulder joints.

 How the interventions are performed?

The patient would be positioned on a special X-ray-compatible table in an operating theatre. The area of the body to be treated would be examined and then imaged using the C-shaped fluoroscopy device.

To make the procedure more comfortable for patients, we use local anesthesia to numb the skin and intravenous sedation to provide a more comfortable experience for the patient.

We use X-ray guidance (fluoroscopy) to direct a very small needle into the targeted area. Once the correct position is confirmed, the medicine is injected, other nerve treatments can be applied and the needle is then removed.

Following injection treatments, the patient is observed in the recovery area for a short period to make sure that they have adequately recovered following the injection. After that, they can go home accompanied by a family member or friend.

Post-Procedural Advice:

Most patients can resume their usual activities on the following day or as per the practitioner’s advice.
