ok, so i went to a spinal dr yesterday and he wants to do a MRI..i also made an appt with a neurosurgeon, well in order to be seen by the neurosurgeon i needed a mri,my GP did one aug,of 2012 when JUST my back and foot hurt..got the report and im confused?? it states, that the MRI was done without contrast so i assume the nerves would not be as easy to be seen??
reactive marrow changes are noted about the endplates of L4-L-5?
an annular tear is noted along the posterior aspect of the disc of L4-L-5
the conus medullaris terminates posterior to the L1 level and has no abnormal signal within it.
loss of the signal pn t2-weighted imaging is noted within the L4-L-5 abd l5-s1disc space.
i was told i have stenosis and degentrive disc desease??
im taking this to the neursurgeon! do i want another MRI with contrast??
can someone explain this to me???http://www.spine-health.com/forum/announcements/spine-health-announcements/mri-reports-why-we-cant-advise
