How do I interpret MRI cervical spine scan and now facing surgery?

Ask your doctor. Cervical MRI is usually interpreted by a radiologist, and the report sent to the doctor that requested the exam ( the referring doctor). The referring doctor then establishes a diagnosis and treatment plan based on your complaint, the physical exam, the MRI results, and other test results.
Doctor. The interpretation of a MRI scan is most often performed by a radiologist, but if surgery is being considered it should be viewed by your surgeon.
