Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) is the additional diagnostic modality in a patient with low back pain. Being a non-invasive and non-radiation modality MRI is preferred to explore the soft tissues of the back . MRI back doesn't only confirm the diagnosis, but also gives information about the site of pathology and correlation with clinical findings can be done simultaneously. There may be many incidental findings in MRI. On the other hand there are many MRI findings which are not presented clinically but being treated by interventions. We must use MRI as an adjunct of the diagnosis to correlate clinically, not just treat the MRI findings.
