A series of serious accidents following spinal, cervical and lumbar foraminal injections has led French medical insurers to start discussions with professional radiologists to ask us to take the necessary measures allowing them to continue to cover the exceptional but considerable risks of these interventional radiology procedures. This article summarises the facts and the insurers' recommendations and insists on the need to adopt a new and permanent strategy to improve the quality and safety of our practice. © 2012 Éditions françaises de radiologie.
