Hi Doctor and anyone
Can someone explain this if i needed surgery for this? Or any rehab? Thanks for your time.
There are focal concavities at the inferior margin of T11, superior margin of T12, superior margin of L4 and S1 indicative of Schmorls nodes. There is decreased signal intensity of L5-S1 on the FSE T2-weighted study.
There is posterior disk bulge at the level of L4-L5 without canal compromise. Central and right-sided posterior disk herniation is appreciated at L5-S1 resulting to mild spinal and neural canal stenosis.
Conus medullaris ends at T12-L1 interspace. Cauda equina is not thickened.
Vertebral height and marrow signal are preserved.
Normal lordotic curvature of the spine is maintained. Clear paravertebral spaces.
SCHMORL'S NODES, T11, T12, L5 AND S1.
DEGENERATIVE DISK DISEASE, L5-S1.
POSTERIOR DISK BULGE, L4-L5.
CENTRAL AND RIGHT-SIDED POSTERIOR DISK HERNIATION, L5- S1 WITH MILD SPINAL AND NEURAL CANAL STENOSIS.
