T12-L1 is unremarkable.
L1-L2 Mild disc buldge. Facet DJD is mild bilaterally. No cenetral canal stenosis
l2-L3 mild brad disk bulge. Facet DJD is mild bilaterally. there is mild to moderate right lateral recess stenosis near the right L3 nerve root. No central canal stenosis. foraminal stenosis is not significant.

Facet DJD is mild bilaterally with small effusion on the left. there is a mild to moderate right lateral recess stenosis near the right l4 nerve root. No central canal stenosis. foraminal stenosis is mild bilaterally.
L4-L5 demonstrates a mild broad disk bulge extending into both neural foramina. There is a small peripheral annular tears in right neural foramina near the inferior attachment. Facet DJD is mild bilaterally . No central canal stenosis. foraminal stenosis is mild to moderate on the left and mild on the right.
