Abstract
Image intensifier (C-arm) guided facet infiltration of a mixture of long acting local anaesthetic and corticosteroid is a safe and effective office procedure for cervical spondylosis. Visualisation of lower cervical anatomy using C-arm may not always be possible due to the shadow cast by the shoulders. We describe the successful adaptation of swimmer`s view in such cases to carry out the injections.
