The same images as in Figure 1. Between T11 and L4, there are focal (black arrowheads) and multifocal (white arrowheads) areas of vertebral endplate lysis, irregular endplate margins, and spondylosis deformans (black arrows) with varying amounts of intervertebral bone proliferation and bridging. Sclerosis is present adjacent to most areas of endplate lysis, of these lytic areas. The T13 to L1 intervertebral disk space is narrowed dorsally and has a widened appearance ventrally due to endplate lysis, and the intervertebral foramen at this site has decreased size, compared to adjacent foramina, suggestive of disk bulging, herniation, or both.
