MRI results
 
I just received a copy of my MRI, and wanted to know if anyone could explain what is cord signal?

the report states Large herniated pulposus C5-6 on the left with cord compression and cord signal alteration.

I know that pulposus is a herniated disc, I presume that it is oressing on the spine, producing spinal cord compression, but what is cord signal.


thanks for any info
