Is severe left neural foraminal narrowing at c3-c4 dangerous?

It depends

Nerve
Not really dangerous but is can cause nerve compression in that area and symptoms from that compression. Sometimes, however, it produces no symptoms.

MRI-C6-7 there are bilateral uncovertebral osteophytes causing bilateral neural foraminal stenosis. What does this mean?

MRI

Mri
The radiologist is describing small spicules of bone that are causing some narrowing of the bony canal through which the nerve runs. The MR findings would have to be correlated to your clinical findings and a neurologist might be helpful there

Dr. Eric Goodman answered:

Is it possible for a standard MRI to overlook neural foraminal narrowing but an up-right MRI show it? If pain occurs when upright?

Upright MRI

Mri
There are upright MRI scanners. I am not aware of a good study stating upright MRI is better than regular MRI for spinal stenosis. There are anecdotal examples of herniated disc seen only on the upright scan. These scanners are lower resolution than conventional MRI which could cause other findings to be missed. There are only a small number of these scanners in practice in the US.
