Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the correlation of the diffusion values in lumbar intervertebral disks with lumbar artery status and the degree of disk degeneration. studies,MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sagittal T2-weighted images of the lumbar spine were obtained in 37 asymptomatic volunteers aged 22-68 years. The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of 98 lumbar intervertebral disks was determined, and two-dimensional time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography was performed on Published online before print the corresponding 98 lumbar artery pairs (total arteries = 196). The degree of disk degeneration and the status of lumbar arteries were evaluated independently by two radiologists. ADC calculations were performed on the basis of the average signal Abbreviations:intensities of the selected region of interest in lumbar disks. The association between ADC apparent diffusion coefficient ADC values of disks, the disk degeneration, and the status of lumbar arteries of the DSA digital subtraction same level were analyzed with analysis of covariance, and pairwise analysis between angiography groups (Scheffe post hoc multiple comparison) was performed with statistical software. P values less than.01 were considered significant. TOF time of flightRESULTS: The lumbar arterial status correlated strongly with the diffusionvalues of intervertebral disks, and the ADC values decreased with higher degrees of arterial degeneration and diffusion was not significant. Eight severely degenerated disks with normal lumbar artery status and diffusion values were found. CONCLUSION: Impaired flow in lumbar arteries is significantly associated with decreased diffusion in lumbar disks and may play an important role in disk degeneration.
