Well if its an end plate

Well if its an end plate fracture, it would be a hole in the bone/vertebrea. Otherwise know as scmoral node and DDD, so I would say yes. My mri showed scmoral nodes and some doctors are calling it DDD and I have several end plate fractures which are holes. Hope this helps.
