History: Neck pain
MRI-3T CERVICAL SPINE W/O CON
MRI examination of the cervical spine was performed 3.0 Tesla ultra high field wide bore
magnet. Multiplanar multi-sequential techniques were used.
Sagittal imaging demonstrates normal alignment with straightening of the normal lordosis
and a degenerative appearance of the vertebral bodies. The spinal cord has normal signal.
At C3-4 there is a central disc herniation indenting without compressing the cervical
At C4-5 there is a broad-based central osteophytic disc ridge flattening without
compressing the cervical cord.
At C5-6 is a central and right-sided osteophytic disc ridge flattening the right
anterolateral aspect of the cervical cord with asymmetric mass effect upon the exiting
right C6 nerve root.
Review of the remaining levels does not demonstrate evidence of focal abnormality, disc
herniation or stenosis.
Multilevel degenerative spondylitic change there is right-sided asymmetry at C5-C6 and a
small central herniation at C3-4, see discussion above.**************************
