5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
There is loss of normal cervical lordosis and loss of water content of the cervical intervertebral discs.
Small, postero-central protruded discs with peridiscal osteophytes are noted at the C3-C4, C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels, indenting the dural theca anteriorly.
A posterior disc bulge is seen at the C6-C7 level.
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.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images in flexion and extension do not reveal any significant feature of note.
Small, postero-central protruded discs with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4, C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
