    Need help with MRI results

    New and posted other day but now need help understanding these results:

    MRI SPINE CERVICAL WO CONTRAST

    Craniovertebral Junction within normal limits. Vertebral height and alignment well maintained and marrow signal within normal limits. Multilevel anterior and posterior marginal spurring with concomitant disc desiccation ad minimal uniform loss of heitht at the C5 - 6 abd C6 - 7 levels. No acute fracture or subluxation. No paraspinous mass or loculated fluid collection.

    C2 --3: Minimal posterior degenerative disc ridging without herniation or protrusion. Bilateral uncovertebtal osteophyte formation ad foraminal narrowing. No central stenosis.

    C3 4: Minimal posterior disc degenetative ridging without herniation or protrusion. Bilateral uncovertebral osteophyte formation with mild right and moderate to severe left foraminal stenosis. No central stenosis.

    C4 5: Posterior degenerative ridging with slight central prominesve. No acquired central stenosis. Prominent uncovertebral osteophyte formation with mild bilateral foraminal stenosis.

    C5 6: Prominent posterior osteophyte disc complex with effaced anterior subarachiod space. Slight flattening and posterior displacement of the cord without central stenosis. Midline AP diameter 1.1 cm. Uncovertebral osteophyte formation bilaterally with moderate to severe left and moderate foraminal stenosis. Heterogeneous increased signal within the cord consistent with myelomalacia.

    C6 7: Posterior broad-based concentric disc ridging or bulge with effaced anterior subarachoid space, flattening and slight posterior displacement of the cord. Ho central stenosis and midline AP diameter is 1 cm. Heterogeneous signal within the cord consistent with myelomaliacia. Uncovertebral osteophyte formation with mild to moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis.

    C7 T1: Minimal disc desiccation. No herniation, protrusion or extrusion. Ho acquired stenosis.

    Impression:

    1. Multilevel spondylosis with most pronounced findings at the C5 6 and C6 7 levels.

    2. Minimally effaced cord with increased signal consistent with myelomalacia at the C5 6 abd C6 7 levels.

    3. Additional findings as above.

    I had as appointment with a neurosurgeon but he had to cancel. I will go next Tuesday but meanwhile I would appreciate if would help me understand this.

    Thank you
