From the reviews:

"Dr John A Mathis, who is past-president of the American Society of Spine Radiology and a leading authority on vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, has edited review format contributions from selected (almost exclusively) North American authors. 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." (Dr. A Saifuddin, Dr. R Hughes, RAD Magazine, September, 2005)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is an excellent text on discography and C arm directed imaging of spinal disc degeneration and its decompression. This is a very good illustration of percutaneous techniques used by anesthesiologists, neurosurgeons, and orthopaedic surgeons. ... I highly recommend this book for all neurologists and neurosurgeons." (Joseph Grenier,, June, 2014)

"Dr. Mathis has provided both neophytic and experienced practitioners with a comprehensive book that details the gamut of current procedures and techniques. ... book is simply organized, with a logical progression of its chapters from fundamental anatomy and patient evaluation to detailed discussions of individual procedures. The diagrams are excellent and the images complement the procedural discussions. ... provides both novice and experienced spine interventionalists with a superb reference. Readers will benefit from the wealth of technical information provided by Dr. Mathis and his coauthors." (Maurice F. Finnegan Jr., Radiology, Vol. 259 (1), April, 2011)
