Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlmn / F / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzgnik.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neck pain radiating to the RUE with paresthesias since 1 month.
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.
There is reversal of the normal cervical lordotic curve.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
A posterior disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes is seen to indent the cord at the C5-C6 level.
There are posterior disc bulges at the C4-C5 and C6-C7 levels.
Mild facetal hypertrophy is noted at the C4-C5 and C5-C6 levels with degenerative changes of the joints of Luschka at the C4-C5 level on the right and the C5-C6 level, bilaterally.
The cervical vertebral bodies show normal signal intensity. The remaining joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
- 2 - Scan-00008
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The MRI features are suggestive of a posterior disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the C5-C6 level.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.0000 (scan no:802), there is no significant change noted.
