Please Help Interpret MRI
Got radiologist's report on spinal MRI. Here it is:
MRI Of the Cervical Spine:
Of incidental note is a 22 mm mass in the left thyroid.
No evidence of a CSF leak. The cervical medullary junction and spinal cord are normal. No abnormal enhancement. There is a moderate kyhotic curve to the upper and mid cervical spine.
C3-C4: A moderate central and left disc ostrophyte complex is present with mild mass effect on the spinal cord.
C4-C5: Mild disc space narrowing and mild hypertrophic changes of the endplates. A moderate central and right disk osteophyte complex is present with mass effect on the spinal cord.
C5-C6: Slight broad disc osteophyte complex is present without mass effect. Slight uncovertebral hypertrophy on the right.
C-6-C7: A slight central and right disc osteophyte comples is present without mass effect.
MRI Of the Thoracic Spine:
Findings: Except for minimal degenerative changes of the anterior endplates, normal examination. No evidence of a CSF leak. The paraspinal tissues are normal . The spinal cord is normal. The conusis normal. No abnormal enhancement.
The vertebral alignment is normal. No intrinisc bony abnormality. The disc heights and contours are normal. The bony canal and neural foramina are well maintained.
1. No evidence of a CSF leak
2. Degenerative changes in the cervical spine with disc osteophyte complexes at C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6,and C6-C7 with mass effect.
3. A 22 mm left thyroid mass.
