MRI REPORT:
C4-5 Broad disc osteophyte complex, eccentric to the right. Effaces the ventral thecal sac and causes mild to moderate central canal stenosis. Bilateral uncovertebral hypertrophy and facet hypertrophy causing moderate right and mild left neuroforaminal narrowing.
C5-6 Broad central disc osteophyte complex which effaces the ventral thecal sac and flattens the ventral aspect of the cord without overt cord signal abnormality. There is moderate central spinal stenosis. Bilateral uncovertebral hypertrophy and facet hypertrophy cause mild bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing.
C6-7  Disc osteophyte complex which effaces the ventral thecal sac and causes mild central spinal stenosis. Bilateral uncovertebral hypertrophy and facet hypertrophy with a focal osteophyte in the left neural foramen. there is mild right and moderate to severe left neurofoaminal narrowing.
