Only after thorough history and physical examination should one consider the use of imaging studies.

    Imaging studies such as x-ray, CT (computed tomography), and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) are all employed to evaluate patients who present with back or leg pain. The choice of which examination to conduct depends upon the specific clinical question that needs to be answered. Imaging of Specific Disease Entities; Low back pain is a leading cause of medical disability and lost work time in the United States.
