MRI RESULTS. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME UNDERSTAND????
cord signal appears within normal limits. There is normal verterbal body height and signal. There is a mild reversal of cervical lordosis centered at C5-C6. There is a borderline retrolisthesis at C6-C7. No paraspinal soft tissue mass is demonstrated.
No substantial facet abnormality is demonstrated.
There is no disc abnormalilty at C2-C3
C3-C4 shows normal disc height with miniaml diffuse disc bulging. There is no canal or foraminal stenosis.
C4-C5 disc is normal in height and signal.
C5-C6 shows mild disc narrowing with mild diffuse disc bulging and superimposed accentaution of disc bulging in the right laterral-foraminal region. There is no canel stenosis is demonstrated.
C6-C7 show mild disc space narrowing with a right paracentral disc extrustion associated with rightward inferolateral migration of dics material to the C7-T1 level. Tranverse disc herniated material measures up to 12mm tranverse 0.4mm anteroposterior mm,greater inferiorly. There is probably a componet of disc material extending into the right C7-T1 neutral foramen. There is no substantial C6-C7 foraminal narrowing. There is effacement of the anterior CSF space thoughout the C7 level. No left C7-T1 foraminal narrowing is shown.
The C7-T1 through upper disc appear normal.
1 Large C6-C7 right paracentral disc herniation with rightward inferolater migration of disc material extending to the C7-T1 disc level and possibly into the right C7-T1 neural foramen.
2 Mild C5-C6 rightward lateralizing diffuse disc bulging without canel or substanial foraminal stenosis.
Can someone please help me understand. MY PRIAMRY DR just said I need to see a spealist, and does'nt have answers!!
