Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Shlmn / F / 40 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzauhan.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neck pain with pain radiating to the RUE with paresthesias since 8 days.
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.
A posterior disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes is seen at the C5-C6 level with anterior indentation of the thecal sac and mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing.
There are postero-central disc herniations with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4 and C6-C7 levels with anterior indentation upon the cord and thecal sac, respectively at these levels. A small posterior disc bulge is noted at the C4-C5 level.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
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.
- 2 - Scan-00006
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A posterior disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the C5-C6 level.
2. Postero-central disc herniations with peridiscal osteophytes at the C3-C4 and C6-C7 levels.
