In brief: This is an imaging

Finding that can be related to underlying degeneration of the cervical spine or it can be an imaging finding consistent with muscular spasm as can be sometimes seen after a motor vehicle accident.
Sometimes it can reflect the way one is positioned during the study.

In brief: Possible

The normal curvature of the cervical spine is often straightened or even reversed in muscle strain / sprain of the neck region.
