MRI Help

Can you tell me the meaning of MRI report in terms that a simple minded person can understand

L4-5 Mild broad-based disc bulge which effaces the ventral aspect of the thecal sac. Disc bulge in combination with degenerative facet arthritis and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy results in central canal and mild-moderate bilateral neural foraminal narrowing. Approximately 1.3 cm cysts extending inferiorly from the left L4-L5 facet joint.

Other: Sacral Tarlov cysts, largest at S1-2 on the right, with normal appearing fluid signal.

C4-5 Uncovertebral joint hypertrophy, asymmetrically greater on the right, without significant central canal or neural forminal narrowing.

C5-6 Mild posterior broad-based disc bulge which effaces the ventral aspect of the thecal sac. No significant central canal narrowing. Small right nerve root sleeve cyst.
