    Question Ending of conus medullaris?

    Hi, i need some help interpreting my lumbo-sacral MRI results. I suspect i may have a low lying Conus Medullaris, so maybe i've got tethered cord syndrome. The MRI report does not say anything about it, but i don't trust it a lot, because i know i have also spina bifida occulta, and the report has also missed it. The report says that the S1 is lumbarized.

    The problem is that the MRI quality is not excellent. It's been difficult to me to know where the conus medullaris ends. My conus medullaris doesn't seem to end sharply. Can you please take a look? I have uploaded the image for you. Please open the following link:

    Just to let you know, today i went to the doctor and he has told me that the conus is ending between L1 and L2. So, i think i don't have tethered cord syndrome.
