Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz. Jani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain radiating to the RUE with numbness since 2 years.
M.R.I of the cervical spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
There is reduction in height and loss of water content of the cervical intervertebral discs.
There is loss of normal cervical lordosis.
Fairly large, posterior peridiscal osteophytes are noted at the C3-C4, C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels, indenting the dural theca anteriorly.
The cervical vertebral bodies show spotty fatty marrow changes. The D1 vertebral body shows a hyperintense signal on all the pulse sequences, with linear striations suggesting a hemangioma. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
Incidentally noted are small, deep cervical lymph nodes, bilaterally.
1. Fairly large, posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4, C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
