Image-guided procedures

The interventional team at New England Baptist Hospital is among the leaders in spine and joint pain management throughout the Northeast, performing thousands of procedures each year.

We offer a wide array of both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

The majority of procedures are performed under fluoroscopic (x-ray) guidance,  including:

  • Facet blocks
  • Medial branch blocks
  • Rhizotomy
  • Nerve root blocks
  • Sacroiliac joint blocks
  • Epidural injections
  • Discograms
  • Myelograms
  • Arthrograms

We also perform a variety of procedures under ultrasound guidance, such as:

  • Shoulder paralabral cyst aspiration
  • Knee popliteal cyst aspiration

  • Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection

Select procedures employ computed tomography (CT) guidance.  For example:

  • Piriformis injection
