Name of the Patient : Abc XyzThalmn / F / 42 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
C/O pain in the nape of the neck since 20 days.
Past H/O C1-C2 tuberculous involvement. On AKT since 1 1/2 years. C1 laminectomy with posterior fixation done on 00.00.0000.
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 axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
Image quality is degraded due to susceptibility artifacts due to previous posterior fixation. It is hence difficult to evaluate the cord signal and cord status over the C2 to C5 vertebral levels.
The visualized cervical vertebral bodies show no obvious signal change. The cervical intervertebral discs show mild loss of water content.
Postero-central protruded discs are noted at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels.
The visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
1. Post-operative status.
2. Postero-central protruded discs at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels.
3. Susceptibility artifacts due to previous posterior fixation.
