Is there anyone out there that can help me understand my ct report. I am not seeing the doctor for weeks and they will not tell me anything until then.
L2-L3: Mild broad based disk bulge. No significant central or neural foraman.
L3-L4: Broad based annular disk bulge. Mild degree of ligamentum flavum hypertrophy. Can not exclude a small amount of left neural foraminal narrowing secondary to slight interval increase in broad based disk bulge. Patent right neural foraman.
This one gets me cause it states issue with the disk but that disk was removed in august 2013. Looks like the fusion that was done there didnt take.
L4-L5: Broad based annular disk bulge. Although there is a small amount of streak artifact from surrounding hardware, there is a patent central canal and bilateral neural foramen.
L5-S1: Broad based annular disk bulge which results in a mild degree of bilateral neural foraminal narrowing. No significant central canal stenosis.
Any help to understand this would be very appreciated.
