Help in interpreting CT Scan

"Of note, there distal aspects of the L5 transpedicular screws are noted to broach the anterior cortex of the L5 vertebral body and there has been interval development of minimal callus formation about the distal aspect of the right L5 transpedicular screw".

Can anyone explain what any of this means? Thanks!!!


  • Sorry there is no doctor here whom can accurately tell you what that means. The best opinion your going to get is from the doctor whom ordered the test. When do you see that doctor again? Why did you have a Ct scan. Most doctors will take the images along with the clinical findings to make a accurate diagnosis.
