There is multilevel degenerative spondylosis with disc
space narrowing and osteophyte formation. These findings are most
pronounced at the level of C4-5, where there is a posterior disc
osteophyte complex formation with partial effacement of the thecal sac.
There is severe foraminal stenosis on the left and moderate narrowing
seen on the right. The remaining levels showed less advanced disease.
C4-5: There is broad-based posterior disc bulge. There is facet
hypertrophy. There is partial effacement of thecal sac with mild
flattening of the spinal cord in this region. There is moderate narrowing
of the right foramen and advanced narrowing seen of the left foramen
