Table 2 Association with outcome (improvement) Modic I vs. no Modic changes and Modic I vs. Modic II

From: Are the presence of MODIC changes on MRI scans related to “improvement” in low back pain patients treated with lumbar facet joint injections?

  Modic I vs. No Modic Changes Modic I vs. Modic II
  Unadjusted OR (95 % CI) Adjusted OR (95 % CI) Unadjusted OR (95 % CI) Adjusted OR (95 % CI)

  1. Unadjusted and adjusted (age and gender) odds ratios (OR) with 95 % confident interval (CI) for the association with improvement between Modic change type I and no Modic changes as well as Modic I compared to Modic II at the various time points
