Jackie Rowles, CRNA, MBA, FAAPM, performs a provocative discography at Indianapolis Neurosurgical Group's Comprehensive Pain Management Center in Indianapolis, Ind, where she performs diagnostic and therapeutic injections of the spine. The procedure requires placement of specialized needles into the center of each disc tested. The discs are pressurized by the injection of contrast material, and the patient's response is recorded. Information from this procedure is used in the determination for potential fusion or disc replacement surgery. For more information on this procedure, see the "Guest Editorial."
