MRI Understanding
Oct 24, 2013
I had an MRI on my lumbar and thoracic spine and I am not understanding the results:
L2-L3: There is a mild right neural foraminal disc protrusion
which does not lie contiguous to the exiting nerve root.

L3-L4: Very mild right neural foraminal disc protrusion is seen
which does not lie contiguous to the exiting nerve root.

L4-L5: Disc desiccation is seen. There is a left neural foraminal
disc protrusion which does not appear to deform the exiting left L4
nerve root.


T2-T3: A diffuse annular bulge is seen at this level which slightly
deforms the thecal sac.

T3-T4: There is a mild diffuse annular bulge at this level which
slightly deforms the thecal sac.

T7-T8: There is a diffuse annular bulge which slightly deforms the
thecal sac.

Both reports opinions say: multilevel abnormalities as above
Because my insurance ran out the doctor has not made any suggestions as to what to do. He just gives pain medicine. Can someone interpret these results?
By the way all other results were normal. Xrays also say I have chronic rib fractures.
