This article from Orthopaedic Today Europe, Issue 5 is a discussion of the viability of discography. The missing piece of the discussion, in my view, is factoring in the research that shows that discography damages discs. Unfortunately, we still do not have a definitive non-invasive way to test for discogenic pain.
I prefer looking at the sum of the evidence, and weighting a more sophisticated physical exam and history which is a more clinical approach.
It is good for the individual patient, but hard to prove in a large study. Marc Heller, DC
