|Appropriate Use Criteria|
Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) specify in which circumstances it is appropriate to perform a procedure. In an effort to foster clinical decision-making, AUC developers integrate the best available scientific evidence and the collective judgment of experts to generate statements regarding the appropriateness of performing a procedure at the level of patient-specific symptoms, medical history, and test results.
Fluoroscopically-Guided Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sacroiliac Interventions
The purpose of this AUC is to provide guidance to physicians, based on best available evidence and expert consensus, on the appropriate use of fluoroscopically-guided diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for sacroiliac joint pain and pain arising from the posterior sacroiliac complex. For the purpose of this AUC, it is assumed that the patient has sufficient pain and/or dysfunction to merit seeking the opinion of a specialist and that the treating clinician is trained and capable of effectively performing the recommended treatment(s). This AUC is not meant to be used as a standalone algorithm and should be used in conjunction with clinical evaluation, clinician judgment, and patient preference. Confounding factors and concurrent diagnoses may alter the treatment.
