Cervical spine: The vertebrae show normal marrow signal. Posterior central herniation is noted at C2 - C3, causing no significant neural compression. Diffuse disc bulge is noted at C3 - C4 and C4 - C5, indenting anterior subarachnoid space with no significant neural compression. Mild posterior bulges are noted at C 5 - C6 and C6 - C7, causing no significant neural compression. No evidence of disc bulge or herniation in rest of the intervertebral discs. The spinal cord shows normal signal intensity. Craniovertebral junction appears normal. Lumbar spine: The verteb rae show normal marrow signal intensity and normal alignment. L1 - L2 and L4 - L5 discs are desiccated. Mild diffuse disc bulge is noted at L1 - L2 causing no significant neural compression.
