Lumbar curvature seems to be maintained . Vertebrae are with slightly reduced height: flat vertebrae. Multilevel disc bulging, few are with low signal/dehydrated more at L2-3, L3-4.
T1& T2 weighted sagittal MR scan of the lumbar spine showing rounded fairly central endplate cortical defects/Schmörl nodes with herniated disc material at T12, L1, 2, 5.
No significant high signal due to inflammation & oedema is noted in the bone marrow surrounding the Schmörl nodes in T2 weighted slice.
Intervertebral disc spaces are not remarkably reduced.
