OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the lumbar disc herniation on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

BACK GROUND: Lumbar disk herniation (LDH) is a common cause of low back pain in the world. The evidence has shown that the incidence of lumbar disc herniation (LDH) increases with age, weight lift and also depend on gender. In this cross-sectional descriptive study of LDH has been conducted to investigate the role of age in the incidence of LDH in elderly. The aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between the process of aging and the occurrence of LDH in old adults. Clinical studies have indicated that morphological characteristics of lumbar discs and signal intensity of patient’s MRI image have close relationship with clinical outcome
