Help with MRI results

My 18 year old daughter had and MRI of the brain, cervical spine and lumbar spine 6 months ago. The MRI report says, Centrally in the cervical spine at the level of C7 there is a thin almost linear region of T2 hyperintense which spans a length of 1 cm. the diameter is approximately 2 mm. Does anyone know what this means?

Re: Help with MRI results

what that says is that "something" showed up but its non specific. Is there more on the report which you could tell us? A 1 cm thin spot, means it could be previous trauma scar, a muscular issue, even a herniation....there is nothing in what you wrote stating demylination or lesion....therefore, its not specific to anything....sorry!
