Fluoroscopy-guided intervention is the gold standard for chronic pain management. Most of the pain physicians are very comfortable with fluoroscopy-guided procedures. Ultrasonography (USG) is slowly emerging with satisfactory results in the field of chronic pain management. Both have its advantages and disadvantages. Most of the articles are in favor of fluoroscopy for spine procedures, whereas USG is unique in regional nerve block procedures. More studies are required to prove the superiority of one technique over the other.
