Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzen Jarilmn / F / 27 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznna.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neck pain radiating to the RUE with paresthesias since 3 1/2 years.
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 cervical intervertebral discs.
The cervical vertebral bodies show an ill-defined, hypointense signal on the T1 Weighted images which appears isointense to the normal marrow on the T2 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) images. There is no bone erosion or destruction seen.
Small posterior disc bulges are seen at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
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.
Small subcentimeter and centimeter lymphnodes are identified deep to the sternomastoid muscles.
Altered signal of the cervical vertebral bodies as described may represent replacement of fatty marrow by hematopoietic marrow.
No other significant abnormality is detected on this study.
