I am hoping someone smart can interpret this for me into words that make sense.. normal words not doctor words! It is the radiology diagnostics report (the printout, I guess where the Doctor interpreted my MRI) i have no idea what it means besides some of my vertabra have fractures.

the MRI was of my thoracic spine, which we found out had a fracture I believe. what I dont understand is all the details included... help!!

"THERE IS MILD ANTERIOR WEDGE COMPRESSION DEFORMITY OF THE T8 VERTEBRAL BODY WITH NORMAL MARROW SIGNAL. THIS IS SIMILAR TO THE LATERAL CHEST RADIOGRAPH. THERE IS MILD ANTERIOR WEDGE COMPRESSION DEFORMITY OF THE T7 VERTEBRAL BODY WHICH IS NEW WHEN COMPARED WITH THE PREVIOUS CHEST RADIOGRAPH, BUT DOES NOT APPEAR ACUTE, THERE IS NO MARROW EDEMA OR MARROW REPLACEMENT WITHIN THIS VERTEBRA. THERE IS MODERATE TO SEVERE COMPRESSION DEFORMITY OF THE T6 VERTEBRAL BODY WHICH IS ALSO A NEW FINDING WHEN COMPARED WITH THE PREVIOUS LATERAL CHEST XRAY. THIS DOES NOT APPEAR ACUTE, THERE IS NO MARROW EDEMA OR MARROW REPLACEMENT WITHIN THIS VERTEBRAL BODY. THE POSTERIOR ELEMENTS APPEAR INTACT. THERE IS NO ENCROACHMENT UPON THE NEURAL CANAL.

IMPRESSION
1. ((SUMMARIZES ABOVE)
2. ((SUMMARIZES ABOVE)
3. INCIDENTAL FINDING OF A VERTEBRAL BODY HEMANGIONA AT THE T12 LEVEL.


does anybody know what this means? the doctor didnt explain it well and of course I didnt know what questions to ask.

thanks,
Ryan
