This answer was rated:

on my MRI for the lumbar spine is say modic type 1 gegenerative endplate changes at l3-l4 and modic type 11 degenerative changes at l4-l5 and l5-s1 what is the difference between type 1 and type 11.
The numbers refer to how much of the archetecture of the vertebrae is damaged. Modic 1 represents some compression and bone degeneration of the areas while Modic 2 is more of a longer term condition with more compression.
