Magnetic resonance demonstration of hyperintense herniated discs and extruded disc fragments

Abstract

Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is useful in evaluating a variety of spinal pathologies including intervertebral disc disease. Herniated discs are commonly believed to undergo premature degeneration and produce low intensity signal on T2-weighted images. We reviewed 154 patients who were studied for disc herniations or other pathology. Fifty-nine (38%) had… (More)
