5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is slight loss of water content of the L1-L2 intervertebral disc with reduction in height.
There is a small, left paracentral disc herniation at the L5-S1 level.
A minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
A small, right paracentral protruded disc with peridiscal osteophyte is noted at the L1-L2 level.
