GOING TO POST RESULTS FROM MRI-- HOPING THAT SOMEONE CAN TELL ME WHAT THIS ALL MEANS:
FINDINGS: The conus medullas is terminates posterior to T12-L1, No retotroperitoneal abnormanlity.
Bone Marrow signal intensity is Normal. No Compression deformity or Subluxation.
At L5-S1 There is left greater then right Facet disease. There is a 2-3MM central and left paracentral posterior disc protrusion. No neural foranominal narrowing or spinal Sterosis. No lateral recess narrowing is identified.
At L4-L5, thre is mild bilateral facet disease. no disc disease, no neural forminal narrowing or spinal stenosis.
AtL3-4, Thee is mild disc space narrowing with suspected vacuum phenomenon. There is a 1mm disc bulge with superimposed right forminal and far lateral zone disc protrusion mearsuring up to 7mm in AP dimension and 8mm is craniocaudal diminsion(sagittal image #10 and sagittal image #9) This causes moderate right neural foraminal narrowing. The left foramen is patent. no spinal stenosis.
At L2-L3, 1-2 mm disc bulge. No Neural foraminal narrowing or spinal stenosis.
AtL L1-2, no disc herniation, neural forminal narrowing or spinal stenosis.
1. Right foramainal and far lateral zone disc protrusion at L3-4, causes moderate neural forminal narrowing.
2. Other levels of mild degeneratative disc and facet disease. No Other neural forminal narrowing or spinal stenosis.
3. No Suspicious enhaning lesions.
