STUDY DESIGN Experimental correlation study design to quantify features of disc health, including signal intensity and distinction between the annulus fibrosus and nucleus pulposus, with T2* magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and correlate with the functional mechanics in corresponding motion segments. OBJECTIVE Establish the relationship between disc health assessed by quantitative T2* MRI and functional lumbar mechanics. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Degeneration leads to altered biochemistry… CONTINUE READING
