guided invasive cardiovascular (CV) procedures.
These include stent markings during the procedure, adequate coiling of distal part of DJ stent inside the bladder observation of the reflux of an intravesically-instilled methylene blue, fluoroscopically
controlled stenting, and intraoperative ultrasonography of stent curl within the pelvic or postoperative imagings.
We report what we believe is the first adult case of fluoroscopically
guided localization of an accidentally ingested foreign body that had migrated into the soft tissues of the neck.
The effects of compensatory maneuvers, diet modification, and bolus transport during all stages of swallowing can be studied fluoroscopically

For these reasons, transforaminal epidural injection will never be risk-free, but the safest method of injection is with the fluoroscopically
guided, contrast-confirmed method, which should be considered the current standard of care.
In the LESS (Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections for Spinal Stenosis) trial, fluoroscopically
guided transforaminal or interlaminar injections of lidocaine plus triamcinolone, betamethasone, dexamethasone, or methylprednisolone failed to reduce back, buttock, and leg pain or to enhance pain-related function any better than injections of lidocaine alone, reported Dr.

While bilateral flow of iodinated contrast media in the neural canal is frequently verified under fluoroscopically
guided interlaminar epidural injections, anecdotal evidence suggests unilateral blockades under this method may be the result of a band of connective tissue known as the plica mediana dorsalis (Figure 3) .
