I would just like to have my MRI reports in layman's term. At C3-C4 there is mild bulging of the annulus fibrosis. The facet joints and uncovertebral joints appear normal. At C4-C5 there is degenerative disc disease with disc space narrowing. There is a broad-based focal disc protrusion extending from the right to the left lateral recess with associated bilateral uncovertebral joint hypertrophy right greater than left causing predominantly right-sided foraminal stenosis. At C5-C6, there is diffuse bulging of the annulus fibrosis. Also, there appears to be a superimposed focal disc protrusion within the intervertebral foramina on the right associated with right-sided uncovertebral joint hypertrophy and to a lesser extent facet arthropathy causing on axial image severe right-sided foraminal stenosis. The patient is status post cervical fusion at C6-C7. The facet joints and uncovertebral joints appear normal and there is an obliteration of the intervertebral disc space. At C7-T1 the intervertebral disc seems normal. Sagittal images of the conus medullaris appear normal. The impression is reported as degenerative changes and focal disc protrusion at C4-C5 and C5-C6.
