Mir of dorsal spine

More than 2 years just sleeping mode .... Today my narro(dr.) says that i can't walk ... can i make second opinion

MIR OF DORSAL SPINE

Plain MIR of the dorsal spine was pweformed in multiple signal intensities in multiple planes. It reveals:
Clinical profile:H/o trauma.
Loss of normal dorsal curvature is noted.
Partial wedge compression fracture of the D5 vertebral body is seen with slight retrolsthesis.
Partial posterior wedging of the D4 vertebral body with altered signal intensity within.
Altered signal intensity is seen in the spinal cord from D3 to D5 vertebral levels. It appears bulky. Pre & para vertebral soft tissue hematoma is noted.
Bilateral mild pleural effusion is noted.

Rest of the dorsal vertebra bodies show normal size, countours and marrow signal intensities. Facet joints appear normal. Dorsal intervertebral discs show nomal heigt and contours with normal signal intensities.

CONCLUSION:

Loss of normal dorsal curvature.
Partial wedge compression fracture of D5 vertebral body with slight retrolisthesis.
Parcial posterior wedging of the D4 vertebral body with altered signal intensity within.
Altered signal intensity in the spinal cord from D3 to D5 vertebral levels. It appears bulky.
Pre & para vertebral soft tissue hematoma.
Bilateral mild pleural effusion.

Final Diagnosis : #D5 Vertebra
C4-C5 , C5-C6 disc bulge.

Re: Mir of dorsal spine

Hi BSLguy. Unfortunately, your medical terms are different from our terms here in the USA. So it's hard for us to know what part of the spine you are talking about.

So maybe you can help us...where do you have the most pain....neck, back, lower back/legs?

Let's start there..okay.

Egg.

Re: Mir of dorsal spine

I had kind of figured that out Web but I wanted to know more...like where does it hurt....he also has neck issues. As we both know, MRI's don't tell the entire story.

hugs...Eggy
