CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain on the left side with pain radiating to the LUE since 2 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.
There is a small, right paracentral disc herniation at the C6-C7 level with left anterior indentation of the thecal sac. Posterior peridiscal osteophytes are also noted at this level.
A left postero-lateral disc protrusion with peridiscal osteophytes is seen at he C3-C4 level. A mild posterior disc bulge is seen at the C5-C6 level.
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 MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A small, right paracentral disc herniation with posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C6-C7 level.
2. A left postero-lateral disc protrusion with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4 level.
