CT-guided pain therapy

Many patients suffer from acute or chronic pain in the area of the neck or back. We provide a gentle and highly precise treatment in the form of periradicular CT-guided pain therapy. This non-invasive procedure is used for herniated discs and relapses, post-operative scarring, neuroforaminal stenosis and for acute and chronic back pain.

Requirements for CT-guided pain therapy

  • A referral from the treating physician is required; treatment is also possible after consultation with our specialist radiologists.
  • You are required to bring any previous findings (MRI or CT results) to the examination.

Important information

  • For patients taking blood-thinning medications: Please inform us in advance as to which medications you are taking.
  • Please provide your coagulation status.

Procedure for CT-guided pain therapy

  • You assume a prone position on the table as it slowly moves through the CT tube and captures images of your spine.
  • The radiation dose is very low.
  • Pain medication is injected into the troublesome area with a thin needle.
  • Patients are permitted to leave after an observation period of one hour. However, your fitness to drive will be impaired, and you should not operate a vehicle on the examination day.
