My mri results show lumbar djd with moderate neural foraminal stenosis. is neural foraminal stenosis another name for radiculopathy?

No: stenosis means Narrowing, and in this care the foramens or window where the nerves exit are narrowed. If narrowed enough, they may construct the nerve which could lead to radiculopathy.
