Provocative discography is an imaging-guided procedure that is used for diagnostic purposes on individuals whose painful symptoms cannot be explained by any other imaging modalities. A provocative discography is helpful to determine the cause and location of a patient’s back pain. It is still the only imaging technique that provides both anatomical and functional information about a diseased disc.
