Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Ibrlmn / F / 43 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzwalla.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
C/O neckpain, radiating to the LUE and LLE since 1 year with paresthesias.
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 loss of water content of the cervical intervertebral discs.
There is ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament at the C4 vertebral level.
Small postero-central protruded discs are noted at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
A posterior disc bulge with a fairly large, posterior peridiscal osteophyte is noted at the C5-C6 level, more to the left of the midline, indenting the dural theca anteriorly. Slight left neural foraminal narrowing is noted at this level.
A hemangioma with fat content is noted in the C7 vertebral body.
The rest of 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.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
1. Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament at the C4 vertebral level.
2. Small postero-central protruded disc at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
3. A posterior disc bulge with posterior peridiscal osteophyte at the C5-C6 level, more to the left of the midline.
