Loss of disc signal intensity occurred significantly more often in patients with shoulder stiffness and numbness in the upper extremities, while the frequency of posterior disc protrusion was significantly higher in patients with shoulder stiffness than in patients without these symptoms. There was no significant relationship between other MRI findings and the presence or absence of clinical symptoms. These findings suggest that disc degeneration has no pathogenic implications in many patients with acute whiplash injury. http://www.jicef.or.jp/wahec/ful317.htm
Whereas histologic and biochemical characteristics of disc
degeneration are well known, it is unclear whether changes interpreted as disc degeneration on MR imaging (decrease of loss in signal intensity of the disc on T2-weighted images) represent a true pathologic degenerative process of just normal aging. www.star-program.de/data--star-program/upload/star_abstract...
