The spinous processes and intervening soft tissues of the lumbar region may be involved by degenerative, inflammatory, neoplastic, and traumatic processes resulting in low back pain. While conventional radiography and computed tomography have proven useful in the demonstration of abnormalities affecting the spinous processes, they are of limited utility in the evaluation of the intervening soft tissues, which are the predominant site of initial pathologic involvement. To explore the potential… CONTINUE READING
