Hi! I'm not new, I've been in the lumbar section for a couple of years and I've been shifted to cervical now :-(.
Has anyone seen or dealt with anything like this?

Excert from my Cervical CT scan=

degenerative changes at the atlantoaxial articulation with mild pannus formation

I have searched the site and nothing so I guess this is out of the scope of information here. I have a good idea of what it means but not totally. I'm also wanting to know how dangerous it is. If needed I can copy the whole CT results.
Thank you,




  • Unfortunately, we can not advise you on the MRI report since that information can and should only come from your doctor.
    We all know how difficult it can be to wait for results, especially when we are able to get the report and see things that we don't understand on them. But that is exactly why no one can give you that information, results on tests are personal , but they are only one part of the picture, the doctor makes the determination, based on his exam, your symptoms, and using the test results to determine how severe or not something is , what treatments can be done and what the outcomes might be.......I hope that you see your doctor soon.

    I wasn't asking anyone to interpret my results. I was asking about information that I cannot find on the site. I figured I missed it somewhere. Thanks for your help.
