Concise overviews are provided of all these topics. This volume is targeted at physicians interested in utilising the various percutaneous techniques available in managing back pain. ... There are more than 300 illustrations, providing examples of technique and pitfalls. ... This book provides an excellent overview for those already involved in image-guided spinal work or those in other interventional fields hoping to establish a service and is recommended."
