4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
Some T1 Weighted axial images show patient motion.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
There are postero-central disc herniations at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels with posterior peridiscal osteophytes and anterior indentation of the spinal cord.
Small posterior disc bulges are seen at the C3-C4 and C6-C7 levels.
Hemangioma with fatty content is seen in the D1 vertebral body.
The left facet joint at the C4-C5 level and bilaterally at the C5-C6 level show hypertrophic changes.
The cervical vertebral bodies show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
- 2 - Scan-00005
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
1. Postero-central disc herniations at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels with posterior peridiscal osteophytes with anterior indentation of the spinal cord.
2. Small posterior disc bulges at the C3-C4 and C6-C7 levels.
