Effects of sagittal endplate shape on lumbar segmental mobility as evaluated by kinetic magnetic resonance imaging.

STUDY DESIGN Retrospective analysis using kinetic magnetic resonance imaging. OBJECTIVE To investigate relationships between vertebral endplate remodeling, Modic changes, disc degeneration, and lumbar segmental mobility. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Previous studies have shown that disc degeneration and vertebral endplate Modic changes are associated with… CONTINUE READING
