Disorders of Paravertebral Lumbar Muscles: From Pathology to Cross-Sectional Imaging

Guillaume Bierry et al. Skeletal Radiol.

Abstract

Paravertebral lumbar muscles are important for spine stabilization and mobility. They may be abnormal in several disorders that may be associated with pain or functional impairment. Special attention should be paid to the paravertebral muscles during imaging, so that a possible muscular disease is not overlooked, especially in patients with low back pain. This article reviews such imaging abnormalities.
