TECHNIQUE:
Images were acquired in the sagittal and transaxial planes.  Sagitall T2-weighted images were also obtained in flexion and extension.

FINDINGS:
There is mild discogenic disease spondylosis and diffuse posterior bulges from C2-3-C4-5.  There is kyphotic angulation at C4-5.  At C5-6 is severe discogenic disease spondylosis and diffuse posterior bulge and severe endplate osteitis secondary to chronic discovertebral trauma.  There is mild degree of neural foraminal stenosis on the left at C4-5 and C5-6 is a mild degree of central canal spinal stenosis secondary to bulging disc and osteophyte there is severe degree of neural foraminal stenosis bilaterally.  There is a mild degree neural foraminal cyst at C6-7 the neural foraminal stenosis at every level secondary to uncovertebral joint facet joint osteoarthritis.  No intramedullary abnormality.  Findings are not appreciably changed in flexion or extension.  

IMPRESSION:

Hi there!

The report described mild-moderate degeneration of the cervical spine with disc prolapsed at C4/C5, C5/C6 and C6/C7. At C5/C6 there are moderate-severe degenerative changes with narrowing of the spinal canal and the spaces that carry the spinal nerves on either side and at C4/C5 and C6/C7 there is mild narrowing if the spaces that carry the spinal nerves on either side.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
