Abstract : Radiological imaging of the human body provided medical specialists with useful findings that helped obtain accurate diagnosis to select the better treatment option. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the ability to demonstrate the degenerative change that causes Low back pain (LBP). The currents work intended to evaluate the clinical indications and the lumber spine findings based on CT and MRI images. The mean patient's age was 45±12 (30-80) years. The procedures were performed using a multislice CT machine, 64 slices, and a 1.5 T MRI machine (GE SIGNA). In this study, 222 CT procedures were performed for patients suffering from lower back pain diseases. 81.1% of the patients' populations undergone CT procedures for lumber spine, while 19.9% of the patients' populations undergone MRI scans. 45.6% of patient populations are females, while 54.4% are males. A total of 180 patients data were recruited for this study, including 110 males (61%) and 70 (39% females) for CT procedure and 42 patients (25 (59.5%) males and 17 (39.5%) females) for MRI procedures. CT provides useful findings of the disease based on the images. CT's ability to illustrate the degenerative changes of the lumbar spine and the MRI has proved superior over CT in proving the prevalence of the infection and other related degenerative changes.
