Question MRI Results Help

I had a MRI done a few days ago, and I need help understanding the results. Thank you

HISTORY: Neck pain. Degenerative disc disease

TECHNIQUE: Noncontrast cervical spine MRI


FINDINGS: Cervical cord caliber and signal are normal. Loss of normal
lordosis with very mild kyphosis centering at C6-C7. Vertebral body
heights are maintained, bone marrow signal intensities are normal.
Visualized intracranial structures appear unremarkable. Paraspinous
soft tissues are normal. C2-C3 and C3-C4 normal.

C4-C7 reveal disc osteophyte complexes, uncovertebral joint osteophyte
formation, and facet arthropathy, with the following additional details:

C4-C5: No central or neural foraminal narrowing.

C5-C6: Minimal deformity of the ventral thecal sac but no central or
neural foraminal narrowing.

C6-C7: Minimal, if any, left neural foraminal narrowing. Minimal
deformity of the ventral thecal sac but no central stenosis.

C7-T1: No central or neural foraminal narrowing.

T1-T2 disc seen on the sagittal images only appears normal.

IMPRESSION: Minor degenerative disease of the cervical spine. Overall,
no significant central or neural foraminal narrowing.

Re: MRI Results Help

Hey, I am kind of confused, what are you asking? From what I have read and I have seen plenty of MRI readings due to my own auto immune disease. And is that what the doctor will read? I am guessing he will telling you what is wrong?
