Name of the Patient : Abc XyzKalmn / M / 33 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznde.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain radiating to the RUE with paresthesias since 1 year.
M.R.I of the cervical spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images.
There are posterior disc bulges at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels with small posterior peridiscal osteophytes.
The C2-C3 to C5-C6 intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The joint of Luschka on the right side at the C5-C6 level shows degenerative changes with right neural foraminal narrowing.
An ill-defined hypointense area is noted in the C4 vertebral body on the left side, posteriorly on the T1 Weighted images and Fast Scan (T2 *) images and would represent sclerosis.
The rest of the cervical vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs show normal signal intensity. The rest of 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.
1. Posterior disc bulges with small posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
2. Degenerative changes of the joint of Luschka on the right side at the C5-C6 level.
