Discography is a medical procedure that involves injecting a dye
into the jellylike center of a spinal disc to help diagnose back problems.
During discography, a health professional evaluates the amount of pressure
needed to inject the dye into the disc, whether it causes pain, how much dye is
used, and how the dye appears when it is inside the disc.
