Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O wasting of BUE with tingling since 3-4 months.
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.
FEW IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
There is a posterior disc bulge with posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C4-C5 level with anterior indentation of the thecal sac. This disc shows loss of water content.
Mild posterior disc bulges with small peridiscal osteophytes are seen at the C2-C3 and C3-C4 levels.
The cervical vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs 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 MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A posterior disc bulge with posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C4-C5 level.
2. Mild posterior disc bulges with small peridiscal osteophytes at the C2-C3 and C3-C4 levels.
