    Need help understanding this MRI on my Cervical Spine....I'm lost

    CLINICAL HISTORY: Radiculopathy, cervical region. Neck pain,
    numbness in arms. Motor vehicle accident 8 years ago

    COMPARISON: 02/14/2010 cervical spine radiographs.

    TECHNIQUE: Multiplanar noncontrast MRI cervical spine.

    FINDINGS: No acute fracture, dislocation, or suspicious marrow
    abnormality. There is mild reversed lordosis in the mid to lower
    cervical spine suggesting muscle spasm. Prevertebral soft tissues are
    normal. Visualized portions of the posterior fossa of the brain
    appear normal.

    C2-3: Normal.

    C3-4: Minimal disc bulging with no significant stenosis.

    C4-5: Minimal disc bulging with no significant stenosis.

    C5-6: There is a moderate reduction height of the disc and there is
    disc degeneration. There is moderate circumferential disc bulging
    with right parasagittal asymmetric prominence. There is uncovertebral
    hypertrophy bilaterally, worse on the right. There is complete
    effacement of the ventral thecal sac, especially on the right where
    there is mild to moderate indentation in the ventral aspect of the
    spinal cord. No obvious cord edema. Mild bilateral neural foraminal
    narrowing.

    C6-7: Mild disc desiccation. Mild broad-based right parasagittal
    disc protrusion, effacing the ventral thecal sac. No definite cord
    compression. No significant neural foraminal narrowing.

    C7-T1: Negative.

    IMPRESSION:
    C5-6 and C6-7 disc bulging as outlined above, including flattening of
    the ventral aspect of the spinal cord at C5-6, especially on the
    right. Clinical correlation is recommended.
