OBJECTIVE Gadopentetate dimeglumine-enhanced T1-weighted MR imaging has been used to distinguish epidural fibrosis from recurrent disk herniation in the postoperative lumbar spine. Potential interpretative difficulties relate to detection of subtle contrast enhancement and distinction of enhanced tissue from surrounding epidural fat. The objective of this study was to evaluate the utility of fat-suppressed T1-weighted imaging in improving the depiction of postoperative abnormalities. SUBJECTS… CONTINUE READING
