Re: Spine RMI
You have bone spurs growing off the interfaces of the C5 and C6 vertebrae with the C5-6 disk. They are growing backward into the spinal canal (thecal sac) and effacing (pushing away) spinal fluid inside the sac from in front of the spinal cord.
Bone overgrowth off the vertebrae and off the facets (on the side of the spine) are growing into the right C5-6 foramen, which is the opening in the spinal cage where the C6 nerve leaves the spinal cord and heads down into your triceps and thumb.
"mild" means that the radiologist thinks these conditions are not yet problematic
