XR CERVICAL SPINE 4 OR 5 VWS 5/18/2016 7:25 PM

HISTORY: R20.2: Paresthesia of skin;
R93.7: Abnormal findings on diagnostic imaging of other parts of musculoskeletal
system. Neck pain for 6 months.

COMPARISON: MRI 4/27/2016

FINDINGS: Cervical foramina appear adequately patent. There is reversal of the
cervical lordosis. Mild disc narrowing is noted at C5-6. Osteophytic lipping
is noted at C4-5 and C5-6. Small focus of signal abnormality in the C4
vertebral body on the MRI appears sclerotic on the radiographs and may reflect a
bone island. The smaller abnormality and C3 is not well appreciated on the
radiographs. There is no prevertebral soft tissue swelling. Lateral masses of
C1 are symmetric relative to the C2 vertebral body. Odontoid process is
obscured by superimposed structures.

IMPRESSION-

1. Degenerative changes at C4-5 and C5-6.
2. C4 marrow signal abnormality on the MRI appear sclerotic on the radiographs
and could represent a small bone island. The C3 abnormality is difficult to
discern on the radiographs.
