Disc degeneration is present at L4-L5 and L5-S1 and there is discogenic change seen involving the abutting endplates at L5-S1. The conus tip terminates at the level of L1 and is normal in signal pattern. There are no significant abnormalities seen from mid body T12 to mid body L4. L4-L5: Right posterior paramedian disc protrusion, disc material slightly indenting

i really need help understanding my mri

dear angela forget all that **** it is nothing all of us have these finding in our necks the significant issue is the symptoms is it disturbing to the degree of not being able to tolerate? is it necessary to go to analgesics? is it affecting your life adversely? if we do MRI as a screen for all people,i personally think it will turn out to be: hundred percent of people have some sorts of discs so calm down i have 3-levels cervical discs one of them was bad to the degree it caused spinal cord ischemia below it for which i was obliged to go to surgey (C3-C4). iam still in pain tolerating though considered mild to severe but i hate analgesics due to there side effects hope these words help you

PLEASE need help understanding MRI results !?!

Hi there! Aside a previous laminectomy, the MRI describes a disc prolapsed at L4/L5 (lower back). This along with associated degenerative changes and a congenital abnormality has caused narrowing or the spinal canal and would probably need a surgical repair. Hope this helps. Take care!

Can't understand MRI results...

"unremarkable" means nothing can be seen worth remariking about. spondylolisthesis is not that uncommon and basically means a vertebrae is not in perfect alignment with the other vertebrae-- ie it has slipped a little bit. Steve Nash from the Phoenix Suns has this. The rest of the report reads mild to moderate findings-- which to me should not be causing symptoms. there is no mention of distinct pinching of a nerve or compression of the spinal cord. what are his symptoms??? how old is he?? is he overweight??  what does he do for a living??? did he have an injury or accident???

Understanding my MRI results

If you don't get help here in the Back & Neck Community, consider posting your question under the topic Radiology (Expert Forum), although I posted a question there a week ago and haven't had a response yet.  Here's the link: http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Radiology/show/909.  Hope this helps.

Help understanding MRI results

Hi it does not sound good though if the orthopedic is recommending physical therapy that is a good sign.  Good docs will try uninvasive therapies first I would also try going to a neuro surgeon if this does not work. I had a ruptured disc L4-L5 and tried physical therapy for 8 months, it did not work so I was sent to neurosurgeon who specialized in backs. I wish you the best and perhaps someone will come along who can give you a better answer. There is also an "Ask The Doctor" option on here and for $25.00 you can ask the same question

MRI results please help!

  Hi...well from what I am understanding u have DDD-degenerative disk disease..which is not a disease but more just a name of a natural aging process, but those with chiari tend to have the onset a tad earlier than most. U have a bulging disk as well in the thoracic spine....and I think I saw it in the lumbar as well....   As for the chiari not being mentioned, it may have been in the RX for the radiologist to look for nething in addition to the chiari...so, the chiari is a given...is this the same facility that did that study?     "selma"

Mri translation please?

Your MRI isn't bad at all. How old are you? No, I'm not being nosy. As we get older, we all show degenerative changes in our spine. The cervical lordosis is the natural curve in your neck. That also changes with age. Your discs show that they are drying out. All of these changes are just a natural progression of aging, and show no major injury from your car crash. You are lucky.
