Mri - Cervical Spine

Question

Question:

MRI Cervical Spine W/O Contrast

( There is more to this report, but due to the diagnosis on cervical cord, this is my concern for now. )

At C5-C6 and C6-C7, posterior disk osteophyte causes mild impression on the cervical cord. Mild narrowing of the neural foramina is observed bilaterally.

Will someone explain this in layman's terms ?

Thanks,

carlie

Hi Carlie,

Sheck out this site http://www.oralchelation.com/calcium/Degen...neeJoint/p5.htm for osteophyte description.

The C4-C5 description simply means the intervertebral cervical spine space

Josh

PS Hoping your claim is going well Carlie..

Carlie, C5 C6 AND C6 C7 have bone spurrs. ( Posterrior means back side not front) mild impression on spinal cord is something is causing the dura ( The sac that surrounds the cord to be compressed) Neural foramen is narrowed. ( area where spinal cord goes through a vertebrate.

Any mention of stenosis or spondylosis??.
