87125-1Guidance for nerve block of Thoracic spine intercostal nerveActive

Part Descriptions

LP33400-0   Guidance for nerve block
An anesthetic or anti-inflammatory medication injection targeted at a nerve or group of nerves to temporarily relieve pain in a specific location, or to decrease inflammation in that area. A nerve block is usually an outpatient procedure performed by a radiologist or anesthesiologist. Imaging guidance such as fluoroscopy or computed tomography is often used to help place the needle for maximum benefit. Examples for types of nerve blocks and body regions are: 1) Trigeminal nerve blocks (face), 2) cervical epidural, thoracic epidural, and lumbar epidural block (neck and back), and 3) cervical plexus block and cervical paravertebral block (shoulder and upper neck). Benefits may include; temporary pain relief, temporary reduction of inflammation, diagnostic information, and improved function in daily activities. Some risks include; infection, bleeding, delivery of medication to the blood stream, or blocking the wrong nerve. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP262710-9   {Imaging modality}
{Imaging modality} is used for image-guided procedures, where the particular type of imaging used is not specified in the orderable. For example, liver biopsies may be performed under ultrasound or CT guidance, and the particular modality used may be at the discretion of the operator. In such cases, {Imaging modality} indicates imaging guidance not further specified. This concept corresponds to the RP (radiology procedure) concept used in RSNA's RadLex Playbook.
