- The Value of Routine MR Myelography at MRI of the Lumbar Spine. O'Connell, M.J.; Ryan, M.; Powell, T.; Eustace, S. // Acta Radiologica;Nov2003, Vol. 44 Issue 6, p665
To determine whether a commercially available automated MR myelogram sequence improves the interpretation and diagnostic yield at MRI of the lumbar spine. A total of 207 consecutive patients referred for MR examination of the lumbar spine for evaluation of low back pain or spinal radicular...
- Imaging of lumbar degenerative disk disease: history and current state. Emch, Todd; Modic, Michael // Skeletal Radiology;Sep2011, Vol. 40 Issue 9, p1175
One of the most common indications for performing magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the lumbar spine is the symptom complex thought to originate as a result of degenerative disk disease. MR imaging, which has emerged as perhaps the modality of choice for imaging degenerative disk disease, can...

- THE VALUE OF MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING OF THE LUMBAR SPINE TO PREDICT LOW-BACK PAIN IN ASYMPTOMATIC SUBJECTS. David G., Borenstein; O'Mara Jr., James W.; Boden, Scott D.; Lauerman, William C.; Jacobson, Alan; Platenberg, Craig; Schellinger, Dieter; Wiesel, Sam W. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Sep2001, Vol. 83-A Issue 9, p1306
Background: In 1989, a group of sixty-seven asymptomatic individuals with no history of back pain underwent magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine. Twenty-one subjects (31%) had an identifiable abnormality of a disc or of the spinal canal. In the current study, we investigated whether...
- The effect of backpacks on the lumbar spine in children: a standing magnetic resonance imaging study. // Advances in Orthopaedics;Jun2010, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p67
This is the first upright magnetic resonance imaging study to document reduced disc height and greater lumbar asymmetry with common backpack loads in children.
- The role of lumbar disc replacement in the surgical management of low back pain. Freeman, Brian J. C. // British Journal of Hospital Medicine (17508460);Jan2012, Vol. 73 Issue 1, p38
Spinal fusion has long been the standard surgical treatment for degenerative disorders of the spine, but clinical outcomes are often unpredictable. Lumbar disc replacement allows removal of the pain source while preserving motion. This article explores the role of lumbar disc replacement in the...
- A 51-year-old woman with low back pain. Erickson, Brandon J.; Frank, Rachel M.; An, Howard // Orthopedics Today;Oct2013, Vol. 33 Issue 10, p50
The article describes the case of a 51-year-old patient who was brought to the hospital for suffering low back pain.
- Coexistence of osteopoikilosis with seronegative spondyloarthritis and spinal stenosis. EROGLU DEMIR, SALIHA; ÖZARAS, NIHAL; POYRAZ, EMINE; TOPRAK, HÜSEYIN; GÜLER, MUSTAFA // Journal of Physical Therapy Science;2015, Vol. 27 Issue 5, p1625
[Purpose] Osteopoikilosis is a rare hereditary bone disease that is usually asymptomatic. It is generally diagnosed incidentally on plain radiography. The coexistence of osteopoikilosis with seronegative spondyloarthritis or spinal stenosis is rarely reported. Here, we report the case of a...
- Correlation between clinical features and magnetic resonance imaging findings in lumbar disc prolapse. Janardhana, Aithala P.; Rajagopal; Rao, Sharath; Kamath, Asha // Indian Journal of Orthopaedics;Jul-Sep2010, Vol. 44 Issue 3, p263
Background: Lumbar disc prolapse is one of the common causes of low back pain seen in the working population. There are contradictorty reports regarding the clinical significance of various magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings observed in these patients. The study was conducted to correlate...
