Hi Dr. Corenman,

Here are my CT results from 7/11/22. I had my ACDF on October 20, 2021. Is “significant partial osseous incorporation” considered normal at the stage of healing? I am still waiting to hear back from my primary doctor on these results.

HISTORY: 55 year old female. Radiculopathy, cervical region.

TECHNIQUE: Spiral CT was performed, and multiplanar images were created. One or more of the following dose reduction techniques were used: automated exposure control, adjustment of the mA and/or kV according to patient size, use of iterative reconstruction technique.

COMPARISON: Cervical spine CT from 04/20/2021

FINDINGS:
ACDF C5-C6 with intact orthopedic hardware in place. Interbody fusion at this level with significant partial osseous incorporation. The vertebral bodies have a normal appearance and the bony alignment is normal. No abnormalities are seen at the craniocervical junction or the C1-C2 level. No fracture, dislocation, lytic or blastic lesion is seen.

IMPRESSION:
ACDF C5-C6 with intact orthopedic hardware in place. Interbody fusion at this level with significant partial osseous incorporation.
