Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzram Llmn / M / 38 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhari.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neckpain radiating to the RUE.
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.
Posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes are noted over the C2-C3 to C6-C7 levels.
The right facet joint at the C4-C5 level shows hypertrophic
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
Few of the cervical vertebral bodies show areas of fatty replacement of normal marrow.
A Schmorls node is seen at the superior aspect of the C7 vertebral body.
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 dorsal spine was screened with 4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images. A small posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophytes is noted at the D11-D12 level. Mild facetal hypertrophy is noted at the D3-D4 and D10-D11 levels.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes over the C2-C3 to C6-C7 levels.
2. Facetal hypertrophy at the C4-C5 level on the right side.
