ervical interlaminar epidural steroid injection (CILESI) has been widely used for the anagement of neck pain and cervical radiculopathy [1,2]. The risks of CILESI are often elated to the injectate or inappropriate needle placement [3]. Knowing the needle depth is rucial, not only in the proper performance of the procedure but also to prevent potential rauma to the spinal cord.
