Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neck pain radiating to the LUE with paresthesias since 10 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.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
There are small posterior disc protrusions with peridiscal osteophytes at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels with anterior indentation of the thecal sac.
A small posterior disc herniation is noted at the C6-C7 level with peridiscal osteophytes with ventral indentation of the thecal sac. There is degeneration of the joints of Luschka on the left side with left neural foraminal narrowing.
The cervical vertebral bodies show normal signal intensity. The remaining joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
- 2 - Scan-00006
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
Incidental note is made of enlarged lymphnodes in the deep cervical chain bilaterally.
1. Small posterior disc protrusions with peridiscal osteophytes at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels.
2. A small posterior disc herniation at the C6-C7 level with peridiscal osteophytes and degeneration of the left joint of Luschka with left neural foraminal narrowing.
