i've had recent cervical MRI images and over the years. one center writes, "mild", while another imaging center writes "severe". even the surgeons i've met with say "severe", "dangerous" & candidate for fusion surgery.
i find it odd, one place writes "mild" which to me means little problem, and the other places writes, "severe" which certainly explains the symptoms i've had for years.
there must be some criteria radiologists use to write their impressions as either "mild, "moderate", or "severe", yes?
