    Educational Objectives
    Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

    • Analyze the imaging depiction of the relevant anatomy;
    • Relate patient history and physical exam findings with imaging to achieve a likely diagnosis of the spinal pathology causing the patient’s pain or dysfunction;
    • Describe the literature support for the efficacy of the procedures;
    • Identify the risks and benefits of each procedure, as well as assessment, prevention, and treatment of potential complications;
    • Apply technically correct performance of the spinal procedures using safe fluoroscopic guidance with minimal tissue injury or discomfort.
