Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Sullmn / F / 28 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrdiwalla.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
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 slight loss of water content of the C2-C3 and C3-C4 intervertebral discs.
Small postero-central protruded disc with peridiscal osteophytes is noted at the C3-C4 level with slight right neural foraminal narrowing.
A hemangioma with fat content is noted in the C7 vertebral body.
The vertebral bodies show hypointense marrow as compared to normal on the T1 Weighted images which turns isointense on the T2 Weighted images and is suggestive of excess of red/haemotopoeitic marrow.
The remaining cervical intervertebral discs show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
Subcentimeter lymph nodes are seen deep to the sternomastoid muscles bilaterally.
1. Small postero-central protruded disc with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4 level.
2. Preponderance of red/haemotopoeitic marrow in the cervical vertebrae.
