Inflammatory and immunological processes exist with the activation of nociceptors in which mechanical impacts are involved to a greater or lesser extent. The nerve root can be compressed, deformed or stretched by the disc, facets joints or by the intervertebral foramina. These deformities of the nerve root or the dorsal spinal ganglion lead to changes in the local microcirculation of the blood flow. The tissue of the nucleus pulposus, which may protrude from a degenerated disc, causes a chemically induced radiculitis.

1 Computed tomography (CT) Computed tomography (CT) permits detailed differentiation of bony structures and disc tissue. When directly compared to MRI examination, the sectional imaging procedure computed tomography is better suited for analyzing bony structures. When planning surgical intervention, computed tomography can also be used in combination with intrathecal application of contrast medium (postmyelographic computed tomography). However, computed tomography has the disadvantage of a much higher exposure to radiation than regular radiographic procedures.
