The second edition of Atlas of Image-Guided Spinal Procedures features a highly visual atlas format to illustrate exactly how to perform each technique. This medical reference walks you through each procedure, step-by-step, to safely and efficiently relieve patients' pain. This book presents an algorithmic, image-guided approach for each technique; trajectory view (demonstrates fluoroscopic "setup"); multiplanar confirmation views (AP, lateral, oblique); and "safety view" (what should be avoided during injection), along with optimal and suboptimal contrast patterns. Each fluoroscopic and ultrasound chapter also has the same "voice" so it is easy to follow.
Experience and Special Interests

Nikki specialises in biomechanics, which looks at the lower limb function and how it can be improved by the use of orthotics, and now manages the Biomechanics Service. Nikki took up her role for Dorset Musculoskeletal Service (formerly OMS) in 2003, diagnosing and treating painful foot problems
