Our experience demonstrates that spine injections with ultrasound CT and ultrasound MRI fusion guidance is easy, reliable, and accurate, despite the use of a multipurpose VN system available in a large number of radiological departments. Reduction or absence of radiation, such as in the case of Ultrasound-MRI fusion instead of solely CT/Fluoroscopy/Angiography, without compromising precision or operator confidence, was definitely a key issue.
