Diagnostic imaging is routinely used to depict structural abnormalities in people with low back pain (LBP), but most findings are prevalent in people with and without LBP. It has been suggested that LBP is related to changes induced in the spine due to loading. Therefore, new imaging measurements are needed to improve our ability to identify structures relating to LBP.
