Huh? What does this mean?
Hi there, I just got my report of an MRI I had done on my spine and am sure of what it really is telling me. I have an appointment with my Neurologist next month but I'd really like to know what the report says. Any intrepretation is welcome.
Cervical and thoracic spinal cord show normal signal intensity without evidence of myelopathy or demyelinaion.
There is a prominet posterior disc herniation at C5-6 in a left paracentral location. There is a mild deformity of the spinal cord at this level and there is complete effacement of the anterior and posterior CSF space. Incidental note is made of a vertebral hemangioma of T7.
Herniated disc at C5-6 in a left paracental position. No associated myelopathy. Deformity of the thecal sac as well as effacement of the anterior and posterior CSF spaces at this level are identifed.
Am I correct in saying that the "protection" around my spinal cord is fine. I have a herniated disc at C5-6 which effects the strenght in my arms and wrists. My spine has a mild deformity and the cord is either shorterned or thinned where the CSF should be. (Have no idea what the what this means). The noted vertebral hemangioma of T7 is a benign tumour ot lesion.
Am I close?
