- MRI diagnosis of Spinal Osteomylitis
- Role of MRI in Identifying Disk Pathology:
- MRI is at least as useful in evaluating degenerated intervertebral disks as CT and myelography.
- disk herniation is characterized by extension of the disk beyond margins of adjacent vertebral bodies;
- disk space infection is characterized by an abnormally high signal intensity within disk and paraspinal tissues on T2 images;
- gadolinium has been useful in evaluation of postop lumbar spine;
- disc degeneration:
- disk degeneration on MRI is characterized by loss of signal intensity best seen on T2 images (reflects dehydration of disc tissue).
- disk herniation is characterized by extension of disk beyond margins of the adjacent vertebral bodies;
- 34% of patients between 20 and 39 years of age will show at least one degenerative disc level on T2 signal;
