30M with a recent L5/S1 hemilaminectomy and discectomy with persistent left S1 nerve root symptoms.
Pre and post contrast MRI demonstrates the S1 nerve root to be enhanced by enhancing scar tissue.
This is a good demonstration of the need for contrast in the post operative spine to distinguish scar from recurrent disc.
