Prominent Degenerative Changes Involving the Cervical Spine?
First off... Hello folks.
Secondly: Could someone please explain the following findings for me, I study Cognitive Psyc., not Neurology.... and I found this board through a search of my "Findings" verbiage.
Thank you all in advance,
Below is the results of the exam conducted on 8/03/10, verbatim.
Exam: Cervical Spine Complete
CPT Code(s): 72052 - Radiologic Examination, Spine, Cervical; Complete, Including Oblique And Flexion And/Or Extension Studies
FINDINGS: There is reversal of the cervical lordosis. Prominent disc space narrowing is seen at C4-5, C5-6, and C6-7 with prominent spurring and foraminal encroachment. No Fracture is visualized. No evidence of osteolytic or osteoblastic changes.
There is facet joint degenerative arthropathy.

Again, I do thank you for explanations... my symptoms make it hard to complete my work, to be a functional father of 8 & 10 yr old girls and a 15 yr old son, and a pickle jar opener for my long-time girlfriend/fiance.
No matter who you are, nor where you are from... awareness is both, highly sought after and deeply respected.
