description: there is mild retrolistesis of c4 on c5 and spondylolisthesis ofc5on 6 on the order of 2 to 3mm. there is pehaps very mild intervertebral disc space loss at these levels. there is no evidence for acute vertebral body hieght loss. there is mininmal amount of fluid signal intensity along the posteriop margin or the spinal cord. this may represent a prominent central canal or possibly a small syrinx. this extends approximately 1.4 cm longitudinally posteriop to the c2/3 level maximal axil dimension is prehaps on the order to 1/2 mm. no clear complicating features are identified. the spinal cord signal is otherwise normal. no cord expansion is identified.
axial images: through the level of the foramen magnum and at the c2/3 level no significant spinal stenosis or neurofaminal encroachment identfied. at the c3/4 level there is mild uncovertebral proliferative change on the right narrowing the right neural foramen but not mediating spinal stenosis. at the c4/5 level there is irregular disc osteophyte complex without clear spinal stenosis there is right neuroforaminal encroachment. at the c5/6 level there is mild spondylolisthesis no significant disc bulging spinal stenosis or neroforminal encrouchment identified. at the c6/7 and c7/t1 levels the intervertebral are normal.
does any one know what all this means?
