lumbar disc desiccation

I am reading my MRI report, but haven't got a call back from my doctor yet.
This is what it reads..... Diminished T2-weighted signal intensity of the lumbar discs extending from L2-L3 through L4-L5 compatible with disc desiccation. At the L4-L5 level, there is slight discogenic encroachment into the right L:4-L5 neural foramen.

Impression: Lumbar disc desiccation. Minimal discogenic encroachment into the right L4_L5 neural foramen without definite nerve root impingement.
