Loss of T2 signal on my mri loweer back of lower back???
Hello
I am a 32year old male and i  had an mri scan done 5months after a car accident.My doctor just read this report out over the telephone and did,nt explain anything
FINDINGS:
normal alignment with intact vertebral bodies and posterior elements.
conus medullaris terminates at T12/L1 level and is normal.
No intraspinal masses
---Very early disc  degeneration L3/L4 with early loss of T2 signal.-----
Remainder of the discs appear morphologically normal.
Very minimal diffuse disc bulges at L3/L4  and L4/5 levels.
This is not causing central canal stenosis.
There is however very minimal narrowing of the inferior aspects of the exit foramina bilaterally.
remainder of the central canal and exit foramina are patent.
very early facet degenerative changes are seen at L2/L3,L3/L4 AND L4/L5.
COMMENT:
very minimal degenerative changes as described above most prominent at L3/L4 level.

My lower back never gave me any bother until this accident when some drunk driver rear ended my car.so would any of the damage in the report be down to the accident???
What is loss of T2 SIGNAL??
There is however very minimal narrowing of the inferior aspects of the exit foramina bilaterally.???what does this mean and can it be caused in an accident??
thanks
