At the L2/L3 and L3/L4 levels there are no signs of focal disc pathology.

At the L4/L5 level there is minor annular disc bulging causing minimal deformity of the theca.

At the L5/S1 level there is minimal disc bulging causing no abnormal deformity of the theca.

Sagittal reconstructions show no signs of spondylolisthesjs. T)ie lower lumbar disc bulging is noted, the changes are most prominent at the L4/L5 level. The spinal canal does not appear compromised.

[B][COLOR="Red"]UIS Both Median Nerves, X-ray Right Wrist and CT Cervical Spine[/COLOR][/B]

[B][U]X-RAY RIGHT WRIST[/U][/B]
Mild negative ulnar variance is present. No other bony or articular abnormality has been appreciated.


[B][U]ULTRASOUND BOTH WRISTS[/U][/B]
The median nerves are thickened bilaterally. No other soft tissue abnormality has been appreciated in the region of the wrists.

[B][U]Conclusion:[/U][/B]
The thickening of the median nerves is compatible with the presence of the bilateral [COLOR="Red"]carpal tunnel syndrome[/COLOR].


[B][U]CT CERVICAL SPINE[/U][/B]
Technique:
Multiplanar imaging has been performed on the cervical spine.
Findings:
Minor Spondylotic change is present in the discovertebral joints, with evidence of loss of disc height, end-plate sclerosis and end-plate osteophyte formation. Prominent arthritic change is present in the joint between the dens and the anterior arch of the atlas. Mild arthritic change is present in the facet joints.

At C2-C3, there is a minor broad based disc bulge. The disc is abutting the anterior part of the thecal sac.

At C3-C4, there is a minor broad based disc bulge. The disc is abutting the anterior part of the thecal sac.

At C4-C5, there is a minor broad based disc bulge. The disc is abutting the anterior part of the thecal sac.

At C5-C6, there is a mild to moderate broad based disc bulge, maximal in a right posterior location. The disc is indenting the right anterior part of the thecal sac. End-plate osteophytes are causing minimal narrowing of the exit foramina bilaterally.

At C6-C7, there is a mild broad based disc bulge. The disc is abutting the anterior part of the thecal sac.

At C7/Tl, no disc bulge is seen. There is no evidence of neural compression.
Mucosal thickening is present in the paranasal sinuses.

[B][U]Conclusion:[/U][/B]
Multilevel spondylotic change is present in the sites described above.
