Figure 3: Sagittal T1-weighted (a) and sagittal T2-weighted (b) images demonstrating Modic 2 reactive end plate changes at the superior end plate of L4 vertebra (arrow). Axial T2-weighted image (c) at L1-L2 level for localization of disc herniation. Central – red, Paracentral – green, foraminal – pink and extra-foraminal –blue representation. Axial 3D FIESTA image (d) at L4-L5 disc level demonstrating central disc protrusion causing compression of bilateral traversing nerve roots (star) with bilateral lateral recess' narrowing (arrows)
