I was wondering if you can read my MRI report please, and tell me if theres can be any symptoms as a result of this report…
THIS IS THE RECENT MRI DONE FEBRUARY 12 2012
There is a mild scoliosis of the cervicothoracic junction convex to the left ..
At C2/3,there is mild disc bulging.
At C2/4 and C4/5,there is mildmild central disc bulging and minor osteophyte indenting the thecal sac.
At C5/6,there is diffuse disc bulging and osteophyte,more prominent centrally .
At C6/7,the disc is unremarkable.
At C7/T1,there is very mild disc bulging and minor osteophyte,
There has been some interval loss of height with depression of the superior endplates of T1 and T2.There is also mild depression of the superior endplate of T3.These findings appear non-acute.
No cervical disc herniation or spinal stenosis is demonstrated.
There has been some interval loss of height with depression of the central canal of the spinal cord which measures up to 2 to 3 mm in diameter over a length of approx. 3 cm at the C5 and C6 levels. The appeaance is consistant with a prominent central canal or possibly a tiny syrinx . This appears stable taking into account differeence in technique.
The Cervical spinal cord is otherwise within normal limits in signal intensity . No evidence of cervical cord demyelination is seen. The cerebellar tonsils are normally located.
Impression….Mild degenerative chnge as described. Mild Scollosis of the cervicothoracic junction convex to the left. Focal prominence of the central canal verses tiny syrinx at the C5 and C6 levels. This apperas stable back 2005 taking into account difference in technique.
Interval development of some loss of height involving upper thoracic vertebrae , mainly involving the superior endplates. This may be related to insufficiency fractures . I s there a history of significant trama or osteoporosis ? correlation with bone moneral densitometry may be helpful.
RECENT BRAIN MRI DONE IN JUNE 2012
BRAIN MRI JUNE 2012…..Findings;
There is NO Interacranial mass lession,edma or midline shift. NO abnormal T2 or FLAIR signal is present within the white matter.There is NO restricted diffusion or abnormal susceptibility.
The Craniocervical junction, posterior fossa and internal auditory canals are NORMAL. Normal intracranial flow voids are evident.
The visualized oortions of the orbits,paranasal sinuses,and mastoid air cells are NORMAL.
NO acute intracranial abnormality with NO abnormal white matter signal.
I was wondering if at all possible a small fall could of caused these disk bulging or any of these disk problems, I had a stummble in November last year , I landed on my knees and caught my fall by my hands , I had no injury other then the palm of my hand was swollen and brusied for a week , and just felt tender for a little while, but no other injury, I had a MRI done in 2005 and I had no disk bulges, the syrinx was d/x in 2005, I had 2 MRI 6mths apart and there was a small change , it said it was smaller. Never ever had symptoms . But I was given a medication that gave me a toxic reaction and I started to have burning all over my body, and recently alot of bone pain that comes and goes , and muscle pain that comes and goes , just want to rule everything out. I was looking at my axial image of my MRI that area in the center where it looks like a white ring around it seems to be intact with no breakage do that mean theres no disk inside the spinal cord. , I also was wondering if there is a way that you could look at my MRI images and give me your expert opinion. Thank you very muchDonald Corenman, MD, DCModeratorApril 17, 2012 at 5:34 amPost count: 8460
