abstract

  • The NP voxel count proved to be a valid parameter to assess disc degeneration quantitatively in a needle puncture model. The mean NP T2-RT does not change significantly in needle-puncture-induced degenerated IVDs. IVDs can be segmented into different tissue components according to their innate T2-RT.
