Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain with radiation of pain to the LUE.
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.
Mild posterior disc bulges are noted at the C2-C3, C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels. Small posterior peridiscal osteophytes are seen at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
Areas of hypointensity on all the pulse sequences are seen inbetween the odontoid process and transverse ligament and may represent pannus.
There is anterior wedging of the C6 vertebral body. There are areas of fatty replacement of normal marrow of the upper cervical vertebrae.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The remaining cervical vertebral bodies 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 cervico-medullary junction is unremarkable.
1. Mild posterior disc bulges at the C2-C3, C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
2. Areas of altered signal inbetween the odontoid process and transverse ligament may represent pannus (? Rheumatoid Arthritis).
