I recently had an MRI of the Lumber Spine, but I wouldn't see the doctor for about
a week, and I would like to know what the interpretation is. It reads as follows:
No compression fracture or dis
location is seen.
Generalized osteophyte formation (???)
Disc desiccation is seen at L4-L5 and L-5 and S1. (???)
Minimal narrowing of the disc spaces seen at L4-L5 level
There is generalized hypertrophy of the apophyseal joints (???)
L4-L5 shows lateral canal stenossis secondary to severe hypertrophy of the apophyseal joints(???)
l5-S1 level show no disc herniation of disc bulge.
