- There is a 4-7mm area of increased signal on T2 weighted images in the dorsal central aspect of the Cervical Spinal Cord at the C2 level.
- There is mild contrast enhancement of this lesion following Gadoteriodol administration.
- No other focal signal abnormalities or areas of abnormal enhancement are noted within the Cervical Cord.
- Changes of internal disc degeneration are noted at C6-7, with disc space narrowing and posterior Vertebral Body Endplate Osteophyte formation.
- There is mild posterior disc bulging at C3-4, without evidence of significant impingement on the Cervical Spinal Cord.
- There is slightly more prominent disc bulging posteriorly at C5-6.
- At C6-7, there is a broad-based posterior disc protrusion with Vertebral Body Endplate Osteophytes, producing some impingement on the ventral surface of the Thecal Sac.
- There is narrowing of the right C6-7 neural foramen as a result.
- Disc bulging is noted at C7-T1, more marked to the left of midline.
- There are bone marrow signal changes at C6 and C7, due to Vertebral Body reaction to intervening disc degeneration.
- There is no evidence of compression fracture, lytic lesion or subluxation.
- There is left-sided Foraminal Osteophyte formation at C3-4.
- There is right-sided C6-7 Foraminal encroachment due to Osteophytes, as previously described.
