MRI results pain down leg
CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH UNDERSTANDING RESULTS. I HAVE SEVERE RIGHT LEG PAIN .
Noncontrast multiplanar MRI imaging of the lumbar spine was performed.
There is mild degenerative disc space narrowing at L5-S1. Small
Schmorl's node deformity involves the superior L3 endplate. Diminished
T2-weighted signal intensity due to disc degeneration is present at
L2-L3 and L5-S1 levels and to a lesser degree at L4-L5. Slight
bilateral facet hypertrophy is present in the mid to lower lumbar
The inferior aspect of the conus medullaris is within the field-of-view
and is normal in contour.
The L1-L2 level is otherwise unremarkable.
Minimal annular bulging is present at L2-L3.
Minimal annular bulging is present at L3-L4.
There is mild annular bulging at L4-L5. Small focus of increased
T2-weighted signal intensity is present in the posterolateral aspect of
the annulus to the left consistent with annular tear. Additionally
there is minimal broad-based disc protrusion within and lateral to the
left L4-L5 neural foramen.
At L5-S1 on in addition to annular bulging, there is moderate focal
ventral extradural soft tissue signal intensity in the midline and to
the right of the midline representing moderate right paramedian disc
protrusion which mildly displaces the adjacent ventral aspect of the
thecal sac to the right and compresses the right S1 nerve as it exits
the thecal sac. There is mild bilateral degenerative foraminal
IMPRESSION: Moderate right paramedian disc protrusion at L5-S1. Minimal
foraminal and far lateral disc protrusion on the left at L4-L5.
