There is slight disk desiccation and spondylotic spurring at c3-4 through c6-7 levels. Vertebral body alignment and bone marrow signal intensity is otherwise unremarkable. Visualized cervical spinal cord and craniocervical junction are unremarkable. The accompanying axial sequences demonstrate a normal disk space at c2-3. The c3-4 demonstrates minimal spondylotic changes minimally effacing the thecal sac without a significant central canal or neural foraminal canal stenosis, cord effacement, or cord signal abnormality. The c4- 5 level demonstrates mild disk bulge, spondylotic spurring and degenerative uncovertebral joint changes. Findings result in minimal central and bilateral neural foraminal canal stenosis without cord signal abnormality. THe c5-6 demonstrates mild disk bulge, spondylotic spurring and degenerative uncovertebral joint changes. Findings result in minimal central and bilateral neural foraminal canal stenosis without cord signal abnormality. The c6-7 level demenstrates mild symmetric degenerative uncovterbral joint changes resulting in mild neural foraminal canal stenosis. The c7-ti is unremarkable.
