Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzhai D. lmn / M / 76 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzdakia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neck pain radiating to BUE (right more than left) with paresthesias since 20 days.
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. The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content and the C3-C4 to the C6-C7 intervertebral discs are decreased in height.
Large posterior disc herniations with peridiscal osteophytes are seen to indent the cord at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels.
A postero-central disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes is seen to indent the cord at the C3-C4 level.
A postero-central disc protrusion with a small peridiscal osteophyte is noted at the C2-C3 level.
The C3-C4, C4-C5 and C5-C6 facet joints show degenerative changes.
The cervical vertebral bodies show areas of fatty replacement of normal marrow.

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.
1. Large posterior disc herniations with peridiscal osteophytes at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels with a resultant tight canal at these levels.
2. A postero-central disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4 level.
