Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzr Kalmn / M / 42 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzapadia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
C/O neckpain radiating to the RUE since 2-3 weeks.
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.
5 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is a small left paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes indenting the cord at the C5-C6 level.
A posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophytes is seen to indent the thecal sac at the C6-C7 level.
Small posterior disc bulges are noted at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content. The cervical vertebral bodies appear more hypointense to normal marrow on the T1 Weighted images and this may be suggestive of preponderance of hematopoietic marrow (? anemic).
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.
No significant abnormality is detected on the screening T2 Weighted coronal images through the brachial plexus.
1. A small left paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the C5-C6 level.
2. A posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophytes at the C6-C7 level.
3. Small posterior disc bulges at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
