work related back pain radiography

Sadhanandham Shrinuvasan, Ranganathan Chidambaram
BACKGROUND: Low back pain (LBP) is the most common symptom which is associated with limitation of normal activities and work-related disability. Imaging techniques are often essential in making the correct diagnosis for prompt management. Plain Radiography though remain a first imaging modality, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) due to its inherent softtissue contrast resolution and lack of ionizing radiation remains invaluable modality in the evaluation of LBP. AIM: To find the common causes of LBP in different age groups and the role of MRI in detecting the spectrum of various pathological findings...

OBJECTIVE: There have been only a few studies on surgical treatment of lumbar disc herniation (LDH) in young adults. In addition, previous studies do not provide detailed information on the surgical outcomes for young adults with LDH. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcome of transforaminal percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) and open lumbar microdiscectomy for active, young adults (age 20-25 years). METHODS: We performed retrospective chart and radiography...

BACKGROUND: The ongoing Farmers' Cohort for Agricultural Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (FARM) study was developed to evaluate health status and related factors in farmers. METHODS: Farmers in Kangwon Province, South Korea, were recruited. Baseline characteristics were determined using questionnaires about sociodemographic and health characteristics and agricultural work-related factors. In addition, laboratory examinations (lumbar spinal radiography and serologic testing) were conducted...

OBJECT: The authors sought to determine patient-related outcomes after minimally invasive surgical (MIS) lumbar intraspinal synovial cyst excision via a tubular working channel and a contralateral facet-sparing approach. METHODS: All the patients with a symptomatic lumbar intraspinal synovial cyst who underwent surgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics with an MIS excision via a contralateral approach were treated between July 2010 and August 2014...

BACKGROUND: Occupational stress induced injuries occur in various professions that require repetitive motion or physical exertion, such as Radiography. The injuries may involve body parts such as the neck, the upper back, mid back, low back (waist), knee, elbow, wrist and hand and eyes. OBJECTIVE: To assess work related injuries medical radiographers are prone to, during practice of the profession in relation to their working conditions. METHODS: This study was conducted among registered practicing radiographers in Lagos State, South-West, Nigeria...

AIMS: Interventional cardiologists are amongst the most intensive radiation users within medicine. To assess the implications of this usage, the "Women In Innovation" Group (WIN) created a web-based survey called "WIN for Safety" distributed through the European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (EAPCI) to all catheterisation laboratory healthcare professionals, enquiring about radiation protection measures, compliance with monitoring, health (orthopaedic issues), radiation-associated problems (cataracts and cancer) and restrictions imposed upon the pregnant female...

BACKGROUND: Regardless of the simple surgical technique, the success of the subtalar arthrodesis is limited by the rate of non-unions of the arthrodesis. The functional outcome of workers compensation is known to be poorer compared to patients without pending litigation. The aim of this study was to quantify the rate of non-unions and to determine risk factors leading to failure of the osseous consolidation after arthrodesis of the subtalar joint. The outcome assessed is a general health assessment with the SF-36 questionnaire and more illness specific with the AOFAS hindfoot score...

Disc prosthesis surgery is rapidly becoming an option in treating patients with symptomatic degenerative disc disease. Only short-term and midterm results are described in the literature. Most operated patients belong to the age group of 30-50 years. In these active patients, complications can be expected to increase with longer follow-up, similar to total joint replacements in the extremities. Reported here is a series of 27 patients from another institution, who presented with unsatisfactory results or complications after SB Charité disc replacement...

PURPOSE: To assess the relationship between imaging findings, therapy, and functional outcome in patients with persistent low back pain who are suspected of having herniated nucleus pulposus. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data collected during a multicenter, longitudinal study were retrospectively analyzed (n = 1,084). Multivariate regression was used to determine the association between imaging findings, therapy, and functional outcome. The patient outcome measure was disability days: the number of days the patient was unable to perform work-related activities...

A 37-year-old man was investigated for a work-related back injury with plain radiography, CT scan, bone scintigraphy, and SPECT. SPECT was able to demonstrate multiple sites of increased isotope uptake not seen on plain radiographs, CT scan, or planar images. Consequently, the diagnosis of avulsion injury of the multifidus and rotator muscles of the lumbar region was made. SPECT appears to have a role in the specific diagnosis of work-related back injuries.
