Disco gram is a diagnostic procedure used to determine if one or more discs are the cause of back pain. The procedure involves pressurizing discs by injecting them with a sterile dye liquid to induce pain in the affected discs.
What does a disco gram show?
A disco gram is used to evaluate a painful or degenerative disc. If the contrast dye spreads outside the center of the disc, it may indicate that the disc annulus has tears or has ruptured. The results of a discogram may confirm the need for surgery, as well as determine the exact cause of your back pain, which will increase the likelihood of a positive outcome from surgery.
