Couple questions. I made a post yesterday that I don't think anyone has read it's new titled under low back pain, I think. Does anyone know what broad based posterior osteophyte complex means? I tried googling but got no where. Also protrusion with associated annular tear? I got a little info on it. My previous post I listed everything On my mri as well as my ct for neck and back. It's all overwhelming. Thank you

    There are no medical professionals on this site.
    I'm assuming the terms that you are trying to figure out are from your written impression from testing.

    We members are not allowed to comment on MRIs or other tests, nor the written impressions.

    Your doctor would be best to clarify all that information for you, as tests and accompanying written impressions are not diagnoses in themselves.
    They are tools for doctor in search for issues and to rule out issues.
