PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to describe the MR appearance of cartilaginous endplates (CEPs) with close anatomic correlation in cadavers derived from elderly subjects. METHOD High-resolution MRI was performed on five cadaveric lumbar spines, and a total of 48 CEPs were studied with T1-weighted spin echo, T2-weighted fast spin echo, and fat-suppressed 3D spoiled GRASS gradient echo (SPGR) MR images. All specimens underwent anatomic sectioning, and gross anatomic findings were… CONTINUE READING
