Can someone help me to interprety my MRI results please?
Multileveal degenertive disc disease, disc dehydration and disc space narrowing from L3-L4 through L5-S1. Vertebral body height is relatively well-maintained throughout. Mild overgrowth of the lower facet joints. No discrete pars defect, no spondylolisthesis. Distal cord, conus and cuada equina unremarkable.
At L2-L3 there is a disc bulge more prominent on the left.
At L3-L4 small broad-based disc herniation contributes to mild canal and foraminal stenosis.
At L4-L5 small broad-based disc herniation contributes to mild canal and foraminal stenosis.
At L5-S1 small to moderate sized left sided disc herniation partially effaces the left corner of the thecal sac and lateral recess. Displaces the proximal left S1 nerve root posterior when compared to its counterpart on the right, could be some neuaral impingement. Advise clinical correlations. Disc also projects into the left nueral foramen contributes to moderate foraminal stenosis. Doubt significant impingement on the exiting left L5 nerve root but advise clinical correlation.
At L5-S1 moderate-sized disc herniation effaces the left corner of the thecal sac and lateral recess.
