STUDY DESIGN The correlation between discogenic lumbar pain and disc morphology was investigated by using magnetic resonance imaging and discography. OBJECTIVES To assess the various pathologic parameters seen on magnetic resonance imaging in patients with discogenic lumbar pain and to correlate them with observations on discography. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Although numerous previous studies on the subject have been performed, the correlations between various pathologic findings on… CONTINUE READING
