Name of the Patient : Abc XyzChhalmn / F / 55 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain with pain radiating to the RUE and RLE and giddiness.
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 loss of normal cervical lordosis and the cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
A large right paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes is seen to indent the right ventral aspect of the cord at the C6-C7 level.
There is a postero-central disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes indenting the cord at the C5-C6 level.
Postero-central disc protrusions are noted at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
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 large right paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the C6-C7 level.
2. A postero-central disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the C5-C6 level.
