Discogram Procedure

A discogram procedure is a medical procedure in which contrast (dye) is injected into the center of your disc, under pressure, to determine if the injected discs are the source of your pain. The discogram procedure is a diagnostic procedure that shows the presence of tears and/or abnormalities in the disc. At the completion of the discogram procedure, you will need to go to your local hospital or radiology department to have a CT scan of your spine. This CT will provide detailed pictures of the damaged discs. Although uncommon, risks of the discogram procedure include infection, bleeding, allergic reactions to the medication from the discogram procedure and nerve damage.
