I had this MRI taken on June 30 and I will see the doctor tomorrow that ordered the MRI. Parts of this I do not understand and other parts I do. The parts with the (?) after it are the parts I don't understand.
Evaluate for cauda equina syndrome.
Thoracolumbar Levoscoliosis is noted.(?) Vertebrae have normal height. There is a small Hemangioma within the L1 vertebrae.
T12-L1 level: Loss of disc hydration
L1-2 level: Loss of disc hydration
L2-3 level: Loss of disc height and hydration
L3-4 level: Posterolateral disc bulge in combination with facet arthropathy narrows bilateral neural foramina.(?)
L4-5 level: Loss of disc height and hydration with disc bulge, spondylosis and hypertrophy of the facets and legamentum flava indenting the thecal sac producing bilaterial neural foramen stenosis.(?)
L5-S1 level: Finding suggest sever loss of disc height verus prior discectomy. Facet arthropathy is noted bilateral. Neural foramina are narrowed bilaterally.(?)
The conus medullaris and paraspinal tissues appear unremarkable.(?)
Any help would be appreciated.
