Spinal Disc Stimulation/Intradiscal Manometer Units

Definition : Devices designed to perform controlled spinal disc stimulation and to simultaneously measure and display the pressure inside the spinal disc (i.e., the intradiscal pressure). These devices usually consist of a syringe pump used for controlled injection of contrast media into the disc, stimulating the nerves to induce pain; a pressure transducer integrated to the syringe, software that calculates the disc pressure and volume and flow rate of the injected media; and a display that shows the calculated intradiscal pressure and/or other parameters. Spinal disc stimulation diagnostic systems are intended to facilitate discography procedures; they are frequently used for diagnosis of patients with chronic back pain.
