Name of the Patient : Abc XyzShlmn / F / 23 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
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.
Subtle hypointense signal is noted in the C5 and C6 vertebral bodies on the T1 Weighted images. This signal appears isointense on the T2 Weighted images (scans 102.4).
The rest of the cervical vertebral bodies and the 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.
Subtle altered signal in the C5 and C6 vertebrae may represent early changes of osteitis.
A follow up scan would be worthwhile.
