Alleged H/O fall.
M.R.I of the cervico-dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.

There is loss of water content of the visualized cervico-dorsal intervertebral discs.
There is continuous ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament over the C2-C3 to the C5-C6 disc levels.
Small postero-central disc herniations are noted at the C3-C4 and C4-C5 levels indenting the dural theca anteriorly.
Mild facetal hypertrophy is seen on the right side at the C3-C4 level.
The rest of the visualized cervico-dorsal vertebral bodies show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized cervico-dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
