Name of the Patient : Abc Xyznt Manjrlmn / M / 44 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzzare.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O slight weakness of BUE and BLE since 00.00.00 with neckpain.
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 is a small postero-central disc protrusion at the C5-C6 level with mild anterior indentation of the thecal sac. Small posterior peridiscal osteophytes are also noted at this level.
Mild posterior disc bulges with small peridiscal osteophytes are seen at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The 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 atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The dorsal spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images and shows mild degenerative changes.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A small postero-central disc protrusion with small posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C5-C6 level.
2. Mild posterior disc bulges with small peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
