BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that axial compression in extension (ACE) of the spine during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has revealed unexpected pathological features compared with the conventional psoas-relaxed position (PRP) used in imaging. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the dynamic effect of axial loading on lumbar spinal stenosis using MRI in patients with spinal stenosis. METHODS A total of 14 women and 11 men with lumbar spinal stenosis were examined in both PRP… CONTINUE READING
