MRI SPINE CERVICAL WO CONTRAST 72141, Jan 28, 2014 08:32:30 AM
MRI of the cervical spine: 1/20/2014.
History: Headaches. Hemicranial continua. Bilateral neck pain. Left
upper extremity radiculopathy.
Technique: MRI of the cervical spine.
Comparison: Radiographs dated 10/4/2008.
C4-C5: Slight bulge and spurring at most slightly flattens the thecal
sac. This is eccentric to the right. The right ventral surface of the
spinal cord is touched and it may be minimally posteriorly displaced
although is not flattened. The neuroforamen are patent.
C5-C6: There is moderate loss of disc height and disc signal. There is
a disc bulge and spurring. Overall there is at least moderate and
possibly severe narrowing of the right neuroforamen with at least
moderate narrowing of the left neuroforamen. The central canal is
only mild to moderately effaced.
C6-C7: There is disc disease with spurring and a bulge eccentric to
the left with possibly a left paracentral protrusion. These changes
plus facet hypertrophy are causing no more than moderate central canal
and left neuroforaminal narrowing. The left ventral surface of the
spinal cord is touched and is displaced without definitely being
C7-T1: Essentially normal. There is no acute bony abnormality. There
is at most mild straightening of the normal cervical lordosis. The
spinal cord is in normal position, signal and caliber. No definite
posterior fossa or paraspinal abnormality is appreciated.
Fairly mild multilevel spondylosis as better described above. The
overall greatest mass effect is likely upon the right C5-C6
neuroforamen which have at least moderately narrowed. However, given
the left-sided symptomatology, the greatest left-sided mass effect is
likely at C6-C7 where there is spurring and a bulge in the left which
is causing at least moderate narrowing of the left neuroforamen. Given
these findings, the main correlation would likely would be the left C7
