Hello all, i have just had my second MRI performed and I have the results here. If anyone can explain to me what the actual meaning of these results are, I would be honored. They are as follows:
1. vertebral bodies are unremarkable. extradural defects at c4/c5 and c6/c7 which compress the anterior subarachnoid space. paravertebral tissues are unremarkable.
2. c3/c4 there is a left uncovertebral osteophyte narrowing the left c4 neural fomina.
c4/c5 there is a left paracentral disc protrusion which compresses the left c5 nerve root sleeve. there is a left sided uncovertable osteophyte narrowing the left c5 neural foramen.
c5/c6 left paracentral disc protrusion compressing the left c6 nerve root.
If anyone can help i would be grateful. These terms are also used in the rest of the MRI. If these terms can be explained i can decode the rest of it. BTW, my surgeon said that i have a genetic defect that does not allow my spine to produce enough collagen. has anyone out there ever heard of this?
Thank you immensely for your help and for reading this!
