Patient :Can you explain my MRI results? 1. Moderate right paracentral subligamentous disc protrusion or disc/osteophyte complex at c5-c6, associated with mild to moderate right neural foraminal narrowing. No definte neural impingement . 2. Small central subligamentous disc protrusion evident at c4-c5 and c6-c7 levels, without evidence of neural impingement. A minimal bulging disc annulus is seen at c3-c4 level. A small right paracentral subligamentous disc protrusion is seen at the c4-c5 level. A right paracentral moderate subligamentous disc protrusionis evident at c5-c6, deforming the anterior thecal sac. A small central subligamentous disc protrusion is evident at c6-c7 level, mildly deforming the anterior thecal sac. None of these disc protrusions cause significant central spinal canal narrowing. There is mild to moderate narrowing of of the right cervical neural foramen at c5-c6 level, secondary to disc/osteophyte complex at this level. The othere levels show widely patent neural foramen.
