MRI of cervical spine
I am wondering if anyone can help me understand my recent mri results on cervical spine. I have had previous surgery on C6-7 with anterior cervical disc fusion. I am in constant pain and experiencing loss of function to right arm.
C2-3 Mild to moderate narrowing of the foramen on the right. This is likely due to spurring. No cord compression.
C3-4 Mild foraminal narrowing on the right. Again likely uncovertebral spurring. No cord compression.
C4-5 No foraminal or central canal encroachment.
C5-6 Joint space loss. Anterior spurring at the anterior disc space. No foraminal encroachment. Shallow disc bulging with mild impression on the anterior thecal sac. No cord compression.
C6-7 No obvious foraminal encroachment. Right paracentral mass effect secondary to low signal intensity structure. This likely represents a bar or discal bar complex. Mass effect does abut the cord.
C7-T1 No foraminal or central canal encroachment.
OPINION: 1.) Postoperative changes at C6-7 level. Focal bar, spur or discal bar complex right paracentral effacing anterior thecal sac and abutting the right side of the cord. There appears to be a component of mass effect on the right side of the cord as well.
2.) Multi-level degenerative disc disease. Each level of abnormality described in detail above. There are levels with minimal bulging disc and foraminal narrowing likely due to uncovertebral spurring.
**** Can anyone please help me understand this???
