Figure 1: Intraoperative radiographs showing percutaneous and paddle epidural SCS lead placement. (a) Anterior-posterior view of percutaneous SCS placement. Note placement of lead over C2 and midline placement superimposed on spinous processes. (b) Lateral radiograph of the same patient as in A showing dorsal placement of percutaneous SCS lead. Note that apposition of lead with posterior elements confirms midline placement. (c) Anterior-posterior view of paddle SCS lead placement. Note midline placement confirmed by superimposed spinous processes. Also, note strain relief loop left proximal to lead anchors
