Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzblmn / F / 35 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznna.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain radiating to the LUE since 3-4 months.
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.
A large postero-central disc herniation, more to the left of the midline is seen to compress upon the spinal cord and indent the left C7 nerve root at the C6-C7 level.
Postero-central disc herniations are seen to indent the cord at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The cervical vertebral bodies show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The cervical spinal cord shows normal signal intensity.
- 2 - Scan - 00006/67
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The dorsal spine was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images and shows facetal hypertrophy at the D10-D11 level, more on the left.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A large postero-central disc herniation, more to the left of the midline at the C6-C7 level, indenting the left C7 nerve root.
2. Postero-central disc herniations at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
