The Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, HKU has carried out the largest population-based study addressing spine degeneration on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and LBP since 2001 and found specific patterns of vertebral marrow changes, known as "Modic changes".
