ABSTRACT

ObjectivesTo investigate the relationship between cervical intervertebral space narrow-ing in the X-ray and HIVD level of cervical spine in the CT image.MethodsWe studied 101 subjects who were taken cervical spine X-ray and CT. Intervertebral space were measured at the anterior, middle and posterior portion of each cervical disc in the X-ray. Considering individual difference, intervertebral space was set as value divided by upper width of lower vertebral body. We analyzed statistically adjusted in-tervertebral space of normal group and herniated disc group using student’ t t-test.ResultsIntervertebral space of cervical spine was narrowed in the herniated disc group. But there was no significant difference at C2∼C3.ConclusionsWe found that narrowing intervertebral space of cervical spine is asso-ciated with herniated disc. Further clinical observation is needed.
