A case-referant type study assessing the performance of MRI lumbar spine based measurements of the spinal canal in classifying participants as either having neurogenic claudication or non-specific low-back pain. Three measurements of the central lumbar canal are assessed: the dural-sac cross-sectional area, anteroposterior canal diameter and A-D grading system proposed by Schizas et al. The performance of these measurements is compared to a machine learning model incorporating a range of other MRI measurements and demographic information.
