Abstract

A technique is decribed for performing lumbar myelography that provides for patient comfort while decreasing patient risk and increasing accuracy of interpretation. A study of 205 myelograms performed at the University of Miami School of medicine as well as a literature review made it apparent that meticulous attention to technique could decrease the complication rate of myelography and increase diagnostic acumen.
