For most individuals suffering from lower back pain, a common diagnosis is a herniated disc of the lumbar (lower) spine. This video—understanding the MRI of a Lumbar Herniated Disc-is designed for the primary care physician or specialist, such as a Chiropractor or Physical Therapist, to use to learn how to read and understand the MRI of the lumbar spine. This video shows a scan of a disc herniation-you will be able to understand what a sagittal view is (side view) and what an axial image is (the bottom up view). Although most people prefer a top down view, Radiologists prefer a bottom up view. It is recommended that you first watch the “MRI of a normal lumbar spine” first to understand this video more thoroughly.
Please review this video to learn more about understanding the MRI of a lumbar herniated disc.
