Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzh D. Plmn / M / 35 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhtekar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neck pain with pain radiating to the LUE with paresthesias in first 2 fingers of the LUE 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.
A postero-central and left postero-lateral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes is seen to indent the cord and the left C7 nerve root with narrowing of the left neural foramen at the C6-C7 level.
Mild posterior disc bulges with small peridiscal osteophytes
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 a postero-central and left postero-lateral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes indenting the cord and the left C7 nerve root at the C6-C7 level.
