Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzrna Malmn / F / 61 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzchale.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O fall in 0000.
C/O progressive weakness of BLE (left more than right) and LUE since then.
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 bulges with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 and the C6-C7 levels with anterior indentation of the thecal sac. The joints of Luschka on the right side show slight degenerative change with mild right neural foraminal narrowing.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
Fatty changes are seen in the cervical vertebral bodies.
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.
The dorsal spine was screened with the help of 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images and the lumbo-sacral spine was screened with the help of 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images which do not reveal any diagnostic feature of note.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Small posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 and the C6-C7 levels.
2. Slight degenerative change of the joints of Luschka on the right side with mild right neural foraminal narrowing at the C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 and the C6-C7 levels.
