Background and Objectives Ultrasound (US)–guided diagnostic block/radiofrequency ablation (RFA) along the lateral sacral crest (LSC) has been proposed for managing sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain. We sought to investigate (1) ease of visualization of bony landmarks using US; (2) consistency of US-guided needle placement along the LSC; and (3) percentage of the posterior sacral network (PSN) innervating the SIJ complex that would be captured if an RFA strip lesion were created between the needles… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is estimated to be the source of low mechanical back pain in 10-27% of patients. When conservative measures for treating SIJ pain fail (physiotherapy… Expand
