Sample Type / Medical Specialty: Neurology
Sample Name: MRI Cervical Spine - 2

Description: MRI Cervical Spine without contrast.
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)


EXAM:MRI SPINAL CORD CERVICAL WITHOUT CONTRAST

CLINICAL:Right arm pain, numbness and tingling.

FINDINGS:
Vertebral alignment and bone marrow signal characteristics are unremarkable. The C2-3 and C3-4 disk levels appear unremarkable.

At C4-5, broad based disk/osteophyte contacts the ventral surface of the spinal cord and may mildly indent the cord contour. A discrete cord signal abnormality is not identified. There may also be some narrowing of the neuroforamina at this level.

At C5-6, central disk-osteophyte contacts and mildly impresses on the ventral cord contour. Distinct neuroforaminal narrowing is not evident.

At C6-7, mild diffuse disk-osteophyte impresses on the ventral thecal sac and contacts the ventral cord surface. Distinct cord compression is not evident. There may be mild narrowing of the neuroforamina at his level.

A specific abnormality is not identified at the C7-T1 level.

IMPRESSION:
Disk/osteophyte at C4-5 through C6-7 with contact and may mildly indent the ventral cord contour at these levels. Some possible neuroforaminal narrowing is also noted at levels as stated above.
