MRI results -- Multi-disc involvement -- explain in details I can understand

Started by Long Time Sufferer on 12/16/2010 9:03am

MRI shows C3-4 mild irregularly shaped disc buldge extending towards the right foraminal region with a minimal right osteophyte complex causing a mild stenosis.

C5-6 shows a broad based, moderate to large, central disc herniation with is effacing the thecal sac and mildly touching the cord. Slightly asymmetric to the left. Disc hermination is also superimposed upon foraminal disc/osteophyte complexes resulting in moderate bilateral forminal encroachment. Some subligamentous extension of the disc herniation posterior to the C6 vertebral body.

C6-7 shows evidence of prominent disc material seen along the subligamentous position of the left paracentral region causing mild effacement of the thecal sac. The foramina are intact.
