Show Notes

In this episode, Dr. Douglas Beall joins Dr. Michael Barraza to discuss innovation in spine interventions. Dr. Beall tells us how he got his training in spine interventions and shifted to a more clinical approach. We talk about how following patients longitudinally can help determine the true source of pain, and the benefit of implementing new methods into a practice. We discuss what the term interventional radiologist really means and the importance of diagnostic input.

We discuss an example of an out of the box spine intervention that helped a patient. Dr. Beall speaks about his new book that came out earlier this year and how it is different from other textbooks and how he has been using Twitter to give tips and tricks. We talk about how this inspired Dr. Beall to re-start a fellowship training program for spine intervention.

We discuss studies and trials that were done on vertebral augmentation, and we examine the relationship between the name and value of interventional radiology. We touch on some goals for AI use in spine interventions and its impact on diagnosis and treatment.
