Discography is a diagnostic procedure in which x-ray dye (x-ray contrast) is injected into the discs of the spine. After the x-ray dye is injected, a x-ray (called a "discogram") is taken of the discs. The discogram may be normal or may show tears (fissures) in the lining of the disc. The results of discography are used to plan surgery or IDET (intradiscal electrothermal) treatment.
