Abstract

Despite recent trends toward evaluation of back and neck pain with magnetic resonance imaging, myelography and postmyelography computed tomography continue to play an important role in the workup of many patients with spinal pathology. We present techniques for the safe and efficient performance of myelography, lumbar, and cervical puncture, which remain important skills to be mastered by radiology residents and fellows.
