disc dehydration/ black disc (disc degeneration)
Explanation:
Degenerative Disc Disease (sometimes referred to as a Black Disc) refers to the loss of hydration in the disc and a weakening of the annulus (outer lining of the disc). Degenerative Disc Disease is very common in the human population but is not always symptomatic.
http://www.mspine.com/degenerative-disc-disease.htm

If there is just some decreased signal intensity (black disc), then a spine fusion is unlikely to work.
http://www.spine-health.com/Treatment/Spinal-Fusion/Spine-Fu...

This degeneration often begins with dehydration of the disc. This is seen on an MRI scan as a black disc, as the water causes the image to be more white.
http://www.axialif.info/AXI_axialif_eng.html

This embodiment relates to the treatment of a "black" disc. In the case of a degenerated, dehydrated or "black" disc, chemonucleolysis is not necessary.
