Modic 1 signal changes extending to the vertebral body were graded in the cranio-caudal axis for height and in the antero-posterior axis for width, based on the review of all slices, by using a semi-quantitative score ranging from 1 (edema involving < 1/3 of the vertebral body) to 3 (edema involving > 2/3 of the vertebral body)
