Abstract

Degenerative lumbar spine diseases continue to be a common public health problem even with modern medicine in the 21 century. The aim of this study was to assess the degenerative lumbar spine diseases using MRI. This statistical study was conduct at Police hospital center, Khartoum modern center and Antalya medical center during period from September to December 2016. Open and close MRI machine were used and routine lumbar spine was performed. A total of 69 patients (30 male, 39 female) with age range (23-80) who referred to MRI department. The result of study revealed that the mean and standard deviation of age and weight was 55.62+ 12.064(years) and 81.29 +15.414(kg) respectively. The MRI findings were interpreted independently and correlated with clinical history and examination, findings from patients’ records Results. The incidence of patient with osteophytes and degenerative disc disease with neural compression had the highest percentage (31.9%). Disc degeneration on MRI was most frequent at L4-L5 level (56.5%). The incidence of degenerative lumbar spine diseases (DLSD) in male is greater than female. MRI is the procedure of choice in evaluation of DLSD .but isn’t only factor to determine DLSD etiology, for that proper history and clinical examination are very necessary to determine which type of image is need, and also allow the technologist to focus the effort of examination at the proper disc levels.
