Default Assistance reading CT Results

I was wondering anyone would be kind enough to assist me in reading the CT scan results of my neck. Here are the results as follows:

C2-3: There is no significant uncovertebral hypertrophy. The intervertebral disk height is preserved. There is asymmetric left facet arthrosis with a ventromedial left facet osteophyte. The central spinal canal is patent. There is subtle narrowing of the left foramen. The right foramen is patent.

C3-4: There is a small right uncovertebral osteophyte. There is no significant facet arthrosis. The central spinal canal and both foramina are patent.

C4-5: There is no significant uncovertebral hypertrophy. There is mild right facet arthrosis. A subtle posterior broad-based bulge is present. There is a mild central protrusion. This appears to abut the ventral aspect of the cord. Both foramina are patent.

C5-6: There has been a prior ACDF at this level. The left C5 vertebral screw extends to the medial margin of the left foramen transversarium. There is no evidence of hardware fracture or hardware loosening. There is complete ankylosis of the intervertebral disk. There is a small to moderate right uncovertebral osteophyte.
There is a right central osteophytic spur. This may abut the right ventral to ventrolateral cervical spinal cord. The central canal appears patent. There is no significant facet arthrosis. The right foramen is subtly narrowed.

C6-7: There is no significant uncovertebral hypertrophy. The central spinal canal and both foramina are patent. There is mild left facet arthrosis.

C7-T1: Normal.

There is no significant cervical lymphadenopathy. There is no dominant neck mass. There is no lytic or blastic lesion of the cervical spine. There is a focus of dystrophic ossiflcation in the subcutaneous tissue of the mid neck at the level of C5. The paravertebral muscles are normal.

The 3-D volume-rendered reformations were invaluable in assessing the position of the fusion hardware and the alignment of the cervical vertebrae.

IMPRESSION:

1. Prior ACDF at C5-6. An osteophytic marginal spur appears to abut the right ventral aspect of the cord.

2. Degenerative changes of the intervertebral disks, the uncovertebral joints and the facet joints of the cervical spine are mild in severity. A mild central protrusion at C4-5 appears to abut the ventral aspect of the cord. There is no significant foraminal encroachment.

Any information/advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the NeuroTalk Support Groups.

I can't really help you with your results but wanted to say "hi" and to also tell you that there is a thread in the Sticky threads at the top of the forum that may help you understand the results a little better.
