Figure 3

Acquisitions of 7 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging on placebo and adipose mesenchymal stem cell (ADSC)-treated mice. Sagittal T2-weighted (A,C) and axial T1-weighted images (B,D) of the lumbar tract are shown prior to (pre-surgery), 30 minutes after surgery (post-surgery), and 5 and 12 weeks after treatment for a representative mouse treated with placebo (A,B) or ADSC implant (C,D) of the degenerated disc. Violet boxes and arrows identify the spinal column level at vertebrae L1 to L2.
