Re: MRI thoracic/cervical region HELP

I'm afraid your issues are too complex for my level of knowledge. But don't panic over the schlerosis...I can't tell you specifically what impact this has but in general, it is a hardening of the tissue -- I assume it would be similar to when the ligamentum flavum loses its elasticity and thickens...but in this case it is referring to the endplate at T9 and indicates (at least the way I read it!) that
[B]Similar appearing subtle sclerosis is seen in this region [U]on prior CT from 11/4/2010[/U].[/B]...in other words, the schlerosis was on the MRI from 11/04/2010...

As far as I can tell, it doesn't look like too much has developed since the last MRI. Everything appears to be pretty much the same -- the little disc bulges, etc. aren't creating a stenotic situation.

What did you think after reading it?
