Özet

Objective: Measurement of disc height has various clinical implications. Radiographic measurement of disc height may present inaccurate results and its direct "surgical" confirmation has not been studied. This study aimed to evaluate the agreement between the radiographic and post-discectomy surgical measurements of human intervertebral discs' height C2-C3 thru L5-S1.
