The ability to estimate stresses and material properties within the intervertebral disc (IVD) has potential to provide a greater level of understanding and insight in the study of disc degeneration as well as the development of effective intervention strategies. By integrating non-invasive MRI-based imaging methods with computational modeling, a more complete mechanical characterization of the IVD may be achieved, thereby eliminating the need to disturb the tissue or potentially alter the structure destructively.
