    Cervical Spine MRI ?? please help translate

    Hello can someone clarify/breakdown meaning of MRI please. I have constant neck pain, charlie horses when yawn can't move until it eases up, dizziness w/neck movement, headaches and headaches when lie down, shoulder,arm, thumb pain, burning sensation/tingling.

    FINDINGS: The patient is status post anterior interbody fusion between C5 and C7. There is straightening of the normal cervical lordosis. There is degenerative change in the vertebral body endplates adjacent to the C4-5 and C7-T1 disc spaces. There is no acute fracture. The prevertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.

    At C2-3, there is no disc herniation, canal stenosis or cord compression.

    At C3-4, there is a 2 mm ventral extradural defect secondary to bulging disc and uncinate process hypertrophy. This causes mild canal stenosis with no cord compression. There is mild-to-moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis.

    At C4-5, there is a 1.4 mm ventral extradural defect secondary to bulging disc and uncinate process hypertrophy. This causes mild canal stenosis with no cord compression. There is moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis.

    At C5-6, there are postoperative changes There is no recurrent disc herniation, canal stenosis, cord compression or foraminal stenosis.

    At C6-7, there are postoperative changes. There is no recurrent disc herniation, canal stenosis or cord compression. There is moderate left and mild to moderate right-sided foraminal stenosis.

    At C7-T1, there is a 2.3 mm ventral and left-sided extradural defect secondary to bulging disc and uncinate process hypertrophy. This causes mild canal stenosis with no cord compression. There is moderate left and mild to moderate right-sided foraminal stenosis.

    There is no intrinsic abnormality noted within the cervical spinal cord.

    IMPRESSION:

    1. Stent status post anterior interbody fusion between C5 and C7 and straightening of the normal cervical lordosis.

    2. There is mild canal stenosis with no cord compression and moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis at C4-5.

    3. There is mild canal stenosis with no cord compression and moderate left and mild to moderate right-sided foraminal stenosis at C7-T1.

    4. There is moderate left and mild to moderate right-sided foraminal stenosis with no canal stenosis with no cord compression at C6-7.

    5. There is mild canal stenosis with no cord compression and mild-to-moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis at C3-4.
