Sorry, I have no clue either, but have you ever had a discogram done ?
In my opinion, this is the best diagnostic test to have done, especially if you know there is something more to your pain, that the docs are not picking up on.
I was amazed at the images that were picked up on mine, compared to what the other tests had found, such as MRI's and Cat Scans.
My doctors have always told me that the discogram was better than the myleogram.
I hope this helps, as it's only my honest opinion.
Also, for some reason, your images are not showing up on your posting, I just wanted to mention that.

Two level laminectomy fusion L5-S1 & L2-3 done on 12/6/02.
Fifteen inch scar from the very top of butt crack (sorry), to the bra line.
BAK cages, rods & screws.(Titanium)
My pelvic bone was used for grafting.
Praying that the other two discs in between, won't have to be fused later, as I was told it was a possibility, due to the other two discs in between, not being in that great of shape.
Doc didn't want to fuse four levels, unless it is really necessary.
I would hate to repeat the surgery, as the recovery period, is so very painful.
I also have a free fragment in my T11-12 area, that I'm still refusing surgery for, at this point in time.
That surgery is way too dangerous for me to consider, until if affects my being able to walk.
