Sample text

The numbering of the nerve roots may be confusing in the lumbar spine, as the descending root in the epidural space will exit through the neural foramen of the lower vertebral level. For example, at the L4–5 disk level there are two pairs of nerve roots outside the dural sac; the L4 nerve roots are located in the foraminal or extraforaminal zones bilaterally, while the L5 nerve roots are located in the central or subarticular zones bilaterally. Thus a herniated disk located at the L4–5 central or subarticular zones may compress upon the L5 nerve roots (and not L4 nerve roots), while a herniated disk at the L4–5 foraminal or extraforaminal zones may compress upon the L4 nerve roots.

The shape and location of the herniated disk on the contrast-enhanced image shows interval change from the initial T2-weighted image, which is also a pointer to a herniated disk rather than a tumor 34 a c 2 Common Spine Disorders Associated with Back Pain b d Fig. 17 Herniated disk in a 73-year-old man. 6 Illustrations: Common Spine Disorders Associated with Back Pain a b c d Fig. 18 Herniated disk mimicking a paravertebral mass in a 72-yearold man.
