PURPOSE To evaluate the correlation of the lumbar artery status with the diffusion values in lumbar vertebral disks in patients with low back problems using a fresh blood imaging (FBI) technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS First, both digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and MR angiography (MRA) was performed, and the weighted kappa value between DSA and MR angiography in evaluating the status of lumbar arteries was calculated. Then, The sagittal diffusion-weighted MR images in 260 intervertebral… CONTINUE READING
