Hi there!

The report describes:
1. Degenerative intervertebral disc disease present at multiple vertebral levels.
2. At C4/ C5 there is an intervertebral disc protrusion causing mild impression on the spinal cord.
3. There are diffuse intervertebral disc buldges at C3/ C4, C5/ C6 & C6/ C7 levels.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
