Many thanks much!FINDINGS: L5-S1 is designated on series 4 image 32. Conus medullaris terminates in ~ the L1-L2 level. There is straightening the the lumbar spine probably related to spasm.Multilevel disk narrowing is present particularly at the L5-S1 level. Decaying desiccation is primarily existing at the L5-S1 level. The imaged retroperitoneal structures are unremarkable. Segmental axial analysis shows the following: L1-L2: soft loss of disk height spinal canal is open. Neural foramina show up unremarkable.L2-L3: gentle disk bulge and mild side arthropathy but spinal canal is unremarkable. Neural foramina are patent.L3-L4: wide disk bulge, mild facet arthropathy and also likely congenital narrow pedicles. This outcomes in gentle foraminal stenosis ~ above the right. Over there is likewise mild spinal canal stenosis. The left neural foramen is patent.L4-L5: Broad-based disk bulge, moderate side arthropathy and congenitally quick pedicles results in center spinal canal stenosis. Mild bilateral foraminal stenosis is present.L5-S1: over there is a broad-based disc bulge through a ideal paracentral disk protrusion. This finding together with facet arthropathy and also congenitally quick pedicles results in center spinal canal stenosis, worse top top the right. There is moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis. IMPRESSION: 1. Congenitally short pedicles, disk bulge and also facet arthropathy results in spinal canal and foraminal narrowing. Significant levels space at L4-L5 and L5-S1.
