Would appreciate assistance to understand in English. I think below report is just degenerative in nature, but I don't understand a lot of the terminology.
Thx.

TECHNIQUE: Sagittal T1, T2 and axial 3D GRE images of the cervical spine were acquired. A STIR sagittal sequence was also obtained.

FINDINGS: There is reversal of cervical lordosis. There is anterolisthesis of C2 on C3 and stepwise retrolisthesis of C3 on C4 and C4 on C5 and C5 on C6. The vertebral bodies are within normal limits for height. Ventral, prevertebral osteophytes are present at several levels. There are endplate degenerative marrow signal changes present at several levels with Schmorl's nodes. The cervical discs are desiccated with variable degrees of mild to moderate loss of height. Cervical spinal cord is of normal caliber and signal.

C2-3: There are facet degenerative changes. There is a posterior osteophyte-disc complex with uncinate hypertrophy. There is no significant foraminal narrowing. There is mild spinal canal narrowing.

C3-4: There are facet degenerative changes. There is a posterior osteophyte-disc complex with uncinate hypertrophy. There is a superimposed central disc protrusion. There is moderate-severe spinal canal stenosis with deformity of the cervical cord. There is severe bilateral foraminal stenosis.

C4-5: There are facet degenerative changes. There is a posterior osteophyte-disc complex with bilateral uncinate hypertrophy. Severe right and moderate left foraminal narrowing. There is moderate spinal canal compromise with flattening of the ventral cord.

C5-6: There are facet degenerative changes. There is a posterior osteophyte-disc complex uncinate hypertrophy. There is mild-moderate spinal canal narrowing with deformity of the ventral cord. There is severe bilateral foraminal stenosis.

C6-7: There are facet degenerative changes. There is a posterior osteophyte-disc complex uncinate hypertrophy. There may be a superimposed central disc protrusion. There is moderate-severe spinal canal narrowing with deformity of the cervical cord. There is severe bilateral foraminal narrowing.

C7-T1: There are facet degenerative changes. There is a posterior osteophyte-disc complex with uncinate hypertrophy. There is mild left and no right foraminal narrowing. There is no significant spinal canal narrowing.

IMPRESSION: There are multilevel degenerative changes as detailed above.
