Oh no.... that would be cheating!

An MRI is just one finding in a collection of signs and symptoms in any case, and can be meaningless when taken out of context.

Your MRI report looks fairly normal,  but having no idea of your history, or the symptoms you are experiencing, your age, your activity, etc.

All of this information is important for diagnosis.

Your doctor should present your MRI results because he/she has complete clinical information about your back syndrome, including your complaints, history, and a physical exam.

Ask your doctor to describe your MRI in detail, in the context of your pain experience and clinical status.
