Low backache is a common clinical presentation in medical practice and a common referral at most MRI centres. The presentation of lesions in low backache involving various lumbar spinal structures as well as sacroiliac joint often overlap and are clinically indistinguishable, necessitating evaluation by MRI. The detection and characterisation of sacroiliac lesions on MR imaging has been well established, but its presence during evaluation of low back cases has not been analysed and well documented. During routine MR imaging of patients with low back pain, the assessment of sacroiliac joint lesions is often neglected. The aim of this study was to determine the presence of sacroiliitis in MRI of cases with low back pain and analyse its prevalence and morphological patterns.
