C/O neckpain radiating to the LUE with paresthesias since 2 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.
There is loss of normal lumbar lordosis and slight loss of water content of the C3-C4 and C6-C7 intervertebral discs.
There is a fairly large, left paracentral and left postero-lateral extruded disc at the C6-C7 level with mild indentation on the cervical spinal cord and impingement of the left C7 nerve root. Slight superior migration of the disc fragment is noted. Minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the C5-C6 level.
The cervical vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs 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.
A fairly large, left paracentral and left postero-lateral (foraminal) extruded disc at the C6-C7 level with impingement of the left C7 nerve root.
