The guideline from NICE advises not routinely offering imaging in a non-specialist setting for people with low back pain with or without sciatica. It should also be made clear to those with low back pain with or without sciatica that if they are referred for a specialist opinion they shouldn’t expect imaging tests, as these may not be needed and should only be performed if the outcome of the imaging is likely to alter their management.
