Abstract

Thermography is a simple, noninvasive outpatient procedure which can be performed on patients with clinical symptoms of a herniated disk. A positive thermogram usually indicates that an abnormality will be found by myelography. However, the myelographic findings cannot be predicted by a negative lumbar thermogram.
