About

A discogram is a diagnostic procedure in which x-ray dye (contrast material) is injected into the discs of the spine. After the contrast is injected, an x-ray, called a discogram, is taken of the discs. The discogram may be normal, or it may show tears, fissures, or other damage to the disc. The results of a discogram are used to plan treatment of the disc itself.

How It Helps

A discogram is used purely for diagnostic reasons and the results are used to plan treatment for the disc itself.
