Hi, : Hi, what are your concerns/specific questions? These results discribed are disk disease/degenerative changes, there is nothing described to tell of how sever eit is so it is difficult to know what the extent is without seeing the images. The most important thing concerning the MRI is to make sure the finding are consistent with your symptoms in order to tell if it is of any concern. As we age, most of us have the abnormalities as described in your report, but the importance is deciding if this is the cause of your symptoms. This should be done by your doctor. Let me know if i can be of further assistance. Dr khoury usradreview.Com mkhoury@usradreview.Com. ...Read more
