Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzh Llmn / M / 39 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzdar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O radicular pain in the right shoulder and in the RUE since 2 years.
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 postero-central disc herniations indenting the ventral aspect of the thecal sac at the C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels.
A posterior disc bulge is seen at the C4-C5 level and small postero-central disc protrusions are seen at the C2-C3 and C3-C4 levels.
Osteophytes are seen to arise from the postero-inferior margins of the C5 and C6 vertebral bodies.
The cervical intervertebral discs reveal loss of water content.
The cervical vertebral bodies reveal 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 postero-central disc herniations at the C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels and osteophytes arising from the postero-inferior margins of the C5 and C6 vertebral bodies.
As compared to the previous MRI (Study No.00000) dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change noted.
