Welcome  to the Back and Neck Community.  Members are here to provide assistance to individuals experiencing symptoms related to possible abnormal conditions of the cervical and/or lumbar spine.  Advice given is non-professional and is based primarily on personal experiences.  Please post on the Expert Forum if additional medical advice is needed and one of the medical doctors will assist as appropriate.

The neural foramina refers to the opening in the vertebrae of the spine through which the nerves travel from the spinal cord to the extremities and other parts of the body.
Patent is a term which means that the opening is clear without any signs of narrowing or obstruction -- the nerves pass through without being pinched/compressed.

I do not know what portion of your spine was examined by the MRI, but these findings do not indicate anything abnormal.
If you have any specific symptoms that you are concerned about, please post more detailed information and we will be able to assist you further.

Best wishes ----
