Cervical disc disease (MRI)

This MRI of the cervical spine was obtained from a 55-year-old female who presented with left neck and shoulder pain. Sagittal T2- (A) and T1- (B) weighted images show degenerative disc disease at both the C4-C4 and C5-C6 (white arrow) levels. This resulted in spinal stenosis and abnormal signal in the cord (A). The axial gradient image (C) shows a focal left paracentral disc herniation at the C5-C6 level (arrowhead) deforming the cord and resulting in spinal stenosis and marked left neural foraminal narrowing.
