The Proof is in The Picture™

Case Study #1
Postoperative Hypermobile Instability

The recumbent scan for this patient with recurrent low back pain and polyradiculopathy following L4-S1 laminectomy and fusion is shown on the left. The upright scan (right) shows postoperative intersegmental hypermobile instability associated with fluctuating stenosis of the central spinal canal at the level above the fusion.

Case Study #2
Upright Dynamic MRI Reveals Hidden Disc Herniation

The axial standing-extension gradient echo image (right) demonstrates a focal posterior disc Herniation at the C4/5 level not visible on the recumbent scan. Note associated spinal cord compression on the standing-extension scan.

Case Study #3
Evaluation of Spinal Stability

The recumbent scan (left) demonstrates minor degenerative anterolisthesis at L4/5. The upright-flexion study (right) reveals further anterior slip of L4 on L5. These scans show hypermobile translational spinal instability, which can be a surgical indication in case of related low back pain.

Case Study #4
Position Related Recurrent Disc Herniation

The recumbent scan for this patient with right-sided Radiculopathy following partial Discectomy is shown on the left. The upright scan (right) shows a disc Herniation at L5/S1.

Case Study #5
Instability of L4-5 Vertebral Body in Weight Bearing

Clearly defined motion/instability of L4 with respect to L5 vertebral body with subluxation, which worsens in weight bearing images. This indicates instability and possible need for surgical intervention. Note substantial change in disc heights at L2-3, L3-4, L4-5, and L5-S1.
