Abstract

Imaging-guided interventional procedures have become increasingly popular in the treatment of several pathologic conditions in the musculoskeletal system. Besides oncological treatments, musculoskeletal procedures can be performed to treat different degenerative or inflammatory conditions. This paper is aimed to review clinical indications and technical aspects of these kinds of procedures. In particular, we revise the general aspects common to most procedures and the different imaging-guided interventions which can be performed around joints, soft tissues, and spine.
