C/O pain in the upper dorsal region with 3 episodes of aggravation on sneezing).
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is slight loss of water content of the upper and mid dorsal intervertebral discs.
Small, left paracentral peridiscal osteophytes are noted at the D3-D4, D5-D6 and D7-D8 levels.
Slight facetal hypertrophy is noted at the D9-D10 and D10-D11 levels.
The visualized dorsal vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the D12 level.
Screening, T1 Weighted sagittal images of the lumbar spine reveal small postero-central protruded discs with peridiscal osteophytes at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
1. Small, left paracentral peridiscal osteophytes at the D3-D4, D5-D6 and D7-D8 levels.
