C/O neck pain radiating to the LUE with paresthesias since 2 months.
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.
There are small posterior disc herniations with small posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and the C6-C7 levels with anterior indentation of the cord. The joints of Luschka on the left side at the C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels show degenerative changes with left neural foraminal narrowing. Facetal arthropathy is noted at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
A congenital block D1/D2 vertebrae is noted.
The cervical vertebral bodies 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.
