STUDY DESIGN Single-center prospective longitudinal study. OBJECTIVE To study the (1) temporal development of muscle fatty infiltrates (MFI) in the cervical multifidi after whiplash, (2) differences in multifidi MFI between those who recover or report milder pain-related disability and those who report moderate/severe symptoms at 3 months, and (3) predictive value of multifidi MFI outcomes. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The temporal development of MFI on conventional magnetic resonance image… CONTINUE READING
