want to know Predictive disc health proximal to the level of fusion or
MR imaging using T2 weighted Imaging is insensitive to early morphological
changes with no predictive quantitative biomarker profile of early
Thompson scale or the Pfirrmann scale are discontinuous scales fail to
demonstrate the Degeneration or regeneration of disc Objectively.
Multiparametric Imaging using T2 relaxometry
maps,DTI indices namely FA and qualitative FA maps offer both quantitative and
qualitative biomarkers for predictive disc health
