I have neck pain, back headaches/migraines, and weird sensation in both arms. Was hoping if any spine specialists were on here, they could help explain my MRI.

EXAMINATION: MRI Cervical Spine W/O Contrast

INDICATION: Cervicalgia, history of type 2 dens fracture at 16 (now 35)

TECHNIQUE: Sagittal T1, T2, STIR and axial T1 and T2 weight MR imagine was performed through the cervical spine without intravenous contrast. Imagine was performed on a 1.5 Tesla magnet.

FINDINGS: There is straightening of the cervical spine. Vertebral body alignment is otherwise maintained. Vertebral body heights are normal with no acute fracture or compression deformity. The intervertebral disk heights are preserved, Bone marrow signal is appropriate throughout. The cervical cord demonstrates no abnormal signal or myelomalacia. Cervicomedullary junction is normal. There is a 5 mm mucous retention cyst versus a Tornwaldt cyst in the right nasal adenoid. Pre vertebral and soft tissues are otherwise unremarkable.

Individual disk levels are as follows:

C2-3: Unremarkable

C3-4: Unremarkable

C4-5: 1.8 mm left paracentral disc osteophyte complex nearly completely effaces the ventral thecal sac and narrows the spinal canal to an AP diameter of 8 mm. The neural foramina are patent bilaterally.

C5-6: 1.5 mm diffuse disc osteophyte complex partially effaces the ventral thecal sac and mildly narrows the spinal canal to and AP diameter of 9 mm. The neural foramina are patent bilaterally.

C6-7: 1 mm diffuse discs osteophyte complex partially effaces the ventral thecal sac without spinal canal stenosis. The neural foramina are patent bilaterally.

C7-T1: Unremarkable.

1. Narrowing of the spinal canal to and AP diameter of 8 mm at C4-5 and 9 mm at C5-6 secondary to disc osteophyte complexes. No significant neural stenosis seen.
2. Straightening of the cervical spine.
4. 5 mm mucous retention cyst vs a Tornwaldt cyst in the right nasal adenoids.
