Changes in magnetic resonance imaging signal intensity in predicting complications during acute phase osteoporotic vertebral fractures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose: To demonstrate prediction of complications in osteoporotic vertebral fractures with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) changes over time. Methods: MRI signal intensities in osteoporotic vertebral fractures were investigated according to the interval between onset and imaging as follows: 0–10 days (early), 11–20 days (middle), and 21–30 days (later). Results: The diffuse low pattern rates were 52%, 84%, and 95% and 20%, 24%, and 52% in the early, middle, and later periods on T1-WI and T2-WI, respectively. Conclusions: The diffuse low pattern increased with time. The MRI prediction of complications depends on the time phase.
