Requirements to attend this course are as follows:
  • Current ISIS Member
  • Board Certified/Eligible in at least one of these specialties; Anesthesiology, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Radiology, Neurology, Orthopedic Surgery or Neurosurgery
  • Members who are not board certified in any of the above specialties must have completed or be currently enrolled in an ACGME Pain Fellowship and have taken an ISIS Lumbar course

 This intensive 21 hour course is specifically designed to provide:

  • An in-depth review of the anatomy and physiology of spine pain
  • A thorough understanding of relational anatomy of spinal pain generators through observation and examination of gross and microscopic dissections
  • An in-depth awareness of correlative spinal imaging with gross anatomy through unique and specially prepared cadaver sections
  • A clear understanding of the influence of relational anatomy on the safe performance of diagnostic and therapeutic cervical, thoracic and lumbar injection procedures
  • The maximum opportunity to interface with experts in neuroanatomy, neuroradiology, and spinal interventions in small group sessions
  • An understanding of multi-planar fluoroscopic imaging findings with regional anatomic correlation to improve the attendees' grasp of image guided injection skills
  • A clearer understanding of the logical and evidence-based underpinnings of precision spinal diagnosis, and treatment implications

Attendees will receive intensive small-group instruction, demonstration, and practice in the following areas:

  • The neuropathophysiology of spine pain
  • Correlative cervical and lumbar spinal gross anatomy, radiological spinal imaging, and multiplanar fluoroscopic imaging
  • Anatomical bases for complications arising from spine intervention procedures
  • Critical evidence-based thinking applied to risk-based approaches towards injection and treatment of spinal structures based on anatomy, imaging, and fluoroscopy
  • Three-dimensional soft tissue, neurological, and osseous cervical and lumbar spinal anatomy
  • Minimizing risks in commonly performed spine interventions

In groups of 7, attendees will rotate through three stations:

  • Anatomy
  • Radiology
  • Indications and Complications
