I dont understand why my MRI is different from Feb 2012 MRI , I posted taht MRI report on your forum last year, this one indicates I have no loss of height or fracture, the one I had in Feb 2012 indicated I did , its really conflicting..
MRI on Cervical Spine indicated I had NO changes from last MRI , it actually stated on the written report that there is NO degenerative changes throughout tthe entire spine
Normal Cervical lordosis is perserved with no fractures,or spondylolisthesis. The craniocervical junction is normal.The cervical cord is normal in signal and morphology.Compared to Febuary 2012 the tiny persistant central canal at the C5/C6 level is unchanged and measuring less then 1mm anteroposterior dimensions.The visualized paraspinal cord soft tissues are normal.
The disk spaces between C2 and T1 are normal with no protrusion and no resulting central canal or neural foraminal stenosis. Tiny Schmorls are again noted involving superior T1 and T2 Endplates with no loss of height or fracture.
Conclusions… No degenerative changes throughout the cervical spine with no resulting stenosis.
No abnormal signal changes to suggest demyelination.

MRIs can be read by different radiologists who have different interpretations on the same images. It appears that this is one of those cases. If the previous radiologist read the MRI, his interpretation would have been different that this current reading.
