Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Balmn / F / 22 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O radicular pain to the RUE with paresthesias.
Alleged H/O fall prior to this.
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.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
There is slight loss of water content of the C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 intervertebral discs.
Minimal posterior disc bulges are noted at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels. Slight ligamentum flavum hypertrophy is noted at the C6-C7 level.
The cervical vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs 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.
Small lymph nodes are noted deep to the sternocleidomastoid muscles bilaterally.
Screening, T2 Weighted axial images of the brain do not reveal any significant feature of note.
The MRI features are suggestive of minimal posterior disc bulges at the C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels.
