Hey everyone, I was wondering if someone here has possibly had similar MRI/x-ray readings. I had a radiologist find narrowing of my neural foramen from C3 to C7 with it being moderately significant at C6-C7, as well as straightening of normal lordotic curvature. Months later I had x-rays ordered, a different radiologist interpreted these images comparing them to the original MRI images. His impression was as followed : Preserved disk space and vertebral body heights with normal alignment. No fracture or instability. Now, where I'm confused is that how can there be narrowing of the neural foramen if there is preserved disk space and vertebral body heights with normal alignment ? Can anyone help me understand how this is possible?
