Name of the Patient : Abc XyzRalmn / M / 45 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzpta.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neck pain and pain in the left scapular region since 2 years.
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.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
There is a large left paracentral disc herniation at the C6-C7 level with anterior indentation of the cord.
A diffuse posterior disc herniation with posterior peridiscal osteophytes is seen at the C5-C6 level with anterior indentation of the spinal cord.
There are small postero-central disc protrusions at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels with anterior indentration of the thecal sac.
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.
- 2 - Scan-00006
The D1 vertebra is wedged anteriorly without any change in signal intensity.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A large left paracentral disc herniation at the C6-C7 level.
2. A diffuse posterior disc herniation with posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the C5-C6 level.
3. Small postero-central disc protrusions at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels.
