Our purpose was to verify the use of synthetic MR in quantitative analysis of lumbar intervertebral disk degeneration in patients with chronic low back pain. Twenty-four patients underwent MR examination including conventional T2map and synthetic MR. Our results showed strong correlations between the two techniques. These absolute parameters obtained can reflect the intervertebral disk degeneration grades quantitatively. Synthetic MR is efficient and reproducible in the assessment of disk degeneration.
