Definition of Discography (discogram)

Reviewed on 3/23/2020

Discography (discogram): an interventional diagnostic imaging test used to help identify the source of back pain and to guide the treatment of abnormal discs. Using X-ray guidance, contrast dye is injected into the center of one or more spinal discs, which can temporarily reproduce back pain symptoms and help diagnose if a particular disc is causing back pain. Discography may also be used before back surgery to identify discs that may need to be removed.


Nearly everyone has low back pain at some time during their life. See Answer
