    Cervical mri explanation

    EXAMINATION: MRI cervical spine without contrast

    CLINICAL HISTORY: Neck pain and bilateral arm pain with numbness in fingers

    COMPARISON: None.

    TECHNIQUE: Multiplanar multisequence MR imaging of the cervical spine
    performed per protocol without contrast

    FINDINGS:
    Straightening of the cervical lordosis. Slight anterolisthesis suggested C3 on
    C4 and C4 on C5. Vertebral body heights are maintained. No focal acute bone
    marrow signal abnormality. Craniocervical junction is without acute process.
    Cervical cord is normal signal and morphology. No focal acute paraspinal soft
    tissue abnormality.

    C2-C3: No disc herniation. No spinal canal stenosis. Left neural foramen is
    patent. Right neural foramen is mild to moderately narrowed from facet and
    uncovertebral joint hypertrophy.

    C3-C4: No large disc herniation. No spinal canal stenosis. Left neural foramen
    appears patent and the right is mildly narrowed from uncovertebral joint
    hypertrophy primarily.

    C4-C5: No large disc herniation. No spinal canal stenosis. No neural foraminal
    stenosis.

    C5-C6: Posterior disc osteophyte complex eccentric to the left. Flattening of
    the ventral thecal sac. No significant spinal canal stenosis. Right neural
    foramen appears patent and the left is minimally narrowed.

    C6-C7: Posterior disc osteophyte complex flattening the ventral thecal sac.
    Mild spinal canal stenosis. Moderate to severe left and mild right neural
    foraminal stenosis.

    C7-T1: Small right paracentral disc protrusion indenting the ventral thecal
    sac. No significant spinal canal stenosis. No neural foraminal stenosis.

    IMPRESSION:
    1. Multilevel degenerative changes, as detailed above. No high-grade spinal
    canal stenosis. Correlate clinically for specific radiculopathy.
