dc.description.abstract In this study, thirty patients of low backache were investigated by conventional x-ray and then scanned by MRI (L/S MRI) to evaluate; compare and identy the suitable selection of investigations demonstrate low backache. The data was collected from Alshab Hospital, Elingaz Diagnostic Centre and the Military Hospital. Then the data was analyzed and discussed .The results show that 18 cases with disc herniation on MRI and 10 cases from them show narrowing of disc space on plain x-ray .While some cases of (metastases, scoliosis & ankylosis spondylosis) were show v on plain radiograph and MRI .Another two cases show that fractures are more clearly shown on the plain radiograph than on MRI.And four cases diagnosed normal on both MRI & plain radiograph. Finally the researcher concluded that imaging studies(MRI & plain radiograph) are helpful in cases of low backache but they aren't the only factor to determine low backache etiology, for that proper history&and clinical examination are very necessary to determine which type of imaging is needed, and it will also allow the technologist to focus the effort of the examination at the proper disc levels. Finally it is found that plain x-ray still has a role in the detection of low backache. While MRI study provides more detailed informations about low backache. en_US
