Cervical spine MRI of 06/16/2014.

Axial and sagittal images were obtained emphasizing T1 and T2
weighting in the open MRI unit in Reno Pennsylvania. Comparison study
was done at the high field strength magnet at UPMC Northwest. 18 mL
of MultiHance was injected in a left antecubital vein for the
postcontrast images.

There is again noted to be anterior fixation of C4, C5 and C6 with
placement of disc spacers in the C4-C5 and C5-C6 discs. This appears
unchanged from the prior study. There is homogeneous marrow signal in
the vertebra although portions of the vertebral bodies are obscured
by the metallic fixation device. There does appear to be a vertebral
hemangioma in the C4 vertebral body. This was also evident on the
preoperative cervical spine MRI.

The C2-C3 disc remains normal and thickness and fluid signal. The
C3-C4 disc is now mildly bulging with small uncovertebral
osteophytes. No disc herniation or stenosis is seen. No stenosis is
seen at the fused levels of C4-C5 and C5-C6. The C6-C7 disc remains
normal in thickness and fluid signal.

After the injection of contrast a postcontrast sagittal and axial
sequence was obtained. There is significant motion artifact on the
axial sequence obscuring detail of the cervical spine and spinal
cord. On the postcontrast sagittal sequence no foci of abnormal
enhancement are seen.


1. Anterior fixation device extending from C4 through C6 as described
2. Development of mild disc bulging and small uncovertebral
osteophytes at the C3-C4 level with no stenoses seen.
