Can anyone help me with this.i dont see the dr and would like to know if anyone can help me understand what this means
Sagittal and axial images were obtained emphasizing T1 and T2
There is homogeneous marrow signal in the thoracic vertebra except
for the T8 vertebra. There are scattered small foci of fat signal
within the T8 vertebral body. There is more extensive bright signal
in the right pedicle of T8 and the posterior lamina and facets. This
also appears to be fat signal and is of uncertain etiology. This
could be due to a vertebral hemangioma although they usually do not
involve the posterior elements to this degree. The thoracic spinal
cord is normal in caliber and homogeneous in signal intensity. No
stenosis or cord impingement is seen. There is noted to be mild
degenerative disc disease with disc narrowing of the T6-T7 disc and
small endplate Schmorl's nodules. The remainder of the thoracic discs
appear well maintained in height and fluid signal with no herniation
or stenosis seen. The conus is at the L1 level.
1. Mild degenerative disc disease of the T6-T7 disc.
2. Normal appearance of the thoracic spinal cord.
3. Foci of abnormal signal in the T8 vertebra as described above. If
clinically indicated a bone scan could be helpful in further
