H/O fall +.
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.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images and 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
The dorsal spine was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images.
There is loss of normal cervical lordosis and loss of water content of the cervical intervertebral discs.
Small postero-central protruded discs are noted at the C2-C3, C3-C4 and C6-C7 levels.
The cervical vertebral bodies show spotty fatty marrow changes. 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.
Screening images of the brain and the dorsal spine do not reveal any significant feature of note, except for inflammatory changes in the ethmoidal air cells and mastoid air cells bilaterally.
Small postero-central protruded discs at the C2-C3, C3-C4 and C6-C7 levels.
No significant abnormality is detected on the screening images of the dorsal spine and brain.
