    Quality of images looks to be acceptable. I cannot comment on only one axial image as multiple images and sequences need to be interpreted to determine what findings are important. I can tell you that you are pointing to the vertebral artery foramen on the left and it is hard to interpret the patiency of the artery due to flow artifact (the blood flows while the images are captured causing motion artifact.

    Thanks for your reply. The most important thing for me is that the images are of diagnosic quality so thank you for letting me know that.

    I’ll keep you updated once I get the report.

    Dr. Corenman,

    I got the radiologist report back and the only abnormality on the c-spine structure is “a loss of cervical lordosis which may be positional.” All the other structures are fine except for… something that he mentioned where I marked off in this photo:

    Just so I don’t bias your interpretation, would you be so kind as to say what you think it could be before I type out what the radiologist said?

    Here’s the corresponding axial image at T2 with the structure in question:
