Myelography — a diagnostic procedure based on the contrasting cerebrospinal fluid spaces of the contents of the dural sac, which revealed abnormal formation, spinal deformation, mechanical obstruction and blockade of cerebrospinal fluid pathways.
Technical design procedure is simple. For this purpose, the lumbar spine level (L3-L4 or L4-L5 vertebrae) performed a lumbar puncture, after which the contrast agent is introduced. The contrast in the image is formed by a gas (oxygen, nitrous oxide) or rentgenkontrastnymi drugs ("Amipak", "Dimeriks", "Omnipak).
Contrast agent is visible at myelography by lumbar puncture.
Discography — a diagnostic procedure based on the contrasting intervertebral discs by introducing them into water-soluble contrast medium.
Cervical disk puncture in the front. With knowledge of anatomy and topography of the neck structures, as well as small practical skills, this procedure is readily attainable.
Discography for lumbar level can perform as well as lumbar puncture, the dura is pierced twice.
X-ray examination of spine in lateral projection in the discography.
When serial spondilography shots do simultaneously in two planes. The first - immediately after the start of the contrast, and then at intervals of 1 s (5-6 frames) and after administration of contrast.
