MR imaging of the cervical spinal cord demonstrates only minimally increased T2 signal intensity within the spinal cord at the C6-C7 disc space level, the site of the prominent diffuse disc bulge. Findings are less prominent than on the prior examination. Imaging of the cervical spinal cord is otherwise unremarkable.
MR Cervical Spine.
Technique: Sagittal and axial T1 and T2 images were obtained of the cervical spine with and without contrast.
Findings: There is straightening of the cervical lordotic curvature. At the C6-C7 level there is a broad-based, disc bulge which causes anterior extradural indentation of the thecal sac without compete effacement of CSF anterior to the spinal cord. There is not a focal disc herniation.
There is mild narrowing of the neural foramen, bilaterally. There is no alteration in spinal cord contour. There is minimally increased T2 signal intensity within the spinal cord posterior to the inferior aspect of C6 and the superior aspect of C7 which is distinctly less prominent than on the prior examination.
Spinal cord at other levels is normal. There are no structural alterations of the foramen magnum.
