HELP!

Started by hightech490 on 10/18/2010 10:49am

Could anyone tell me in English what all this means?

C3-4: There is considerable uncovertebral joint hypertrophy with marked right neural foraminal compromise and some mild more diffuse spondylosis.
C4-5: There is mild right degenerative facet disease and mild uncovertebral joint hypertrophy with mild right neural foraminal compromise and partial effacement of the CSF ventral to the spinal cord otherwise.
C5-6: There is disc desiccation with a moderate size spondylotic ridge and some uncovertebral joint hypertrophy with some flattening of the ventral aspect of the spinal cord as well as moderate bilateral neural foraminal compromise, right greater than left. This might contribute to history of radicular symptoms.
C6-7: There is loss of disc height and T2 signal associated with moderate uncovertebral joint hypertrophy and mild more diffuse spondylosis with moderate bilateral neural foraminal compromise and partial effacement of CSF ventral to the spinal cord.
