The top and the bottom part of the vertebral bone which inteces with the disc is called the vertebral endplate. The in the vertebral end plates are a classification of changes which was proposed by Modic. These changes are commonly seen as a part of the age related degenerative process. Some people with these changes have low back pain due to problems in the disc but this is not always true.
He recently had sagittal views of the lumbar spine in proton density and T2. There is significantly red marrow changes in the lumbar spine. There is also narrowing of the disc space at L5-S1 with Modic Type 11 degeneration of the vertebral endplates.What does this mean, especially the red marrow changes in the lumbar spine?
thank you so much for your help i have been having trouble holding my urine do you think that has anything to do with my back alsoi have degenerative narrowing and modic changes at c5-c6 and degenerative changes at vertebral body endplates lower and mid thoracic accompanid by what does mean again thank you
degenerative changes and bone endplate changes of the L4-L5 level with mixed modic type II and III changes, there is a moderate disk space narrowing at L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels. 2. there are disk bulges at the L4-L5 nad L5-S1 levels which cause neural foraminal narrowing and moderate central spinal canal stenosis. 3. there is a high intensity zone seen in the posterior annulus at the L4-L5 level consistent with a posterior annular tear. I went to two DR.
Hello I have strange pain in my perineal area (for about 2 years now, feels like a spasm, urological problems have already been excluded) already and lately also mild lower back pain when walking for more than 1 hour. I am 23 years old and I trained basketball for about 13 years. I will post my Lumbar spine X-Ray and MRI results if somebody can tell me whether there is something that could cause my symptoms.
No i had cervical cancer and had a hystarectomy about 10 years ago I slo have fibromialga, kidney disease and rhmeuitoid arthritis degenerative joint and disc disease, Schmorals and of the discs in my back, and few other things too but the problem is i am allergic to so many meds it makes it impossible to treat me. I am just so sick of the headaches and they are getting worse.
There is straightening of the lumbar spine lordosis and advanced Modic endplate changes at L4-L5 with discogenic disease. -L3-L4: Mild broad-disc bulge extending 1-2 mm beyond the vertebral endplate. Therespondylotic changes modic changes is early tear of the annulus fibrosis of the right para-lateral margin. There is moderate left and early mild right neuroforaminal narrowing. Compression of the exiting left L3 nerve is suspected. Fluid is noted within the cets.
degenerative joint disease, arthritis, lumbar cet syndrome, sciatica, MRI showing L5-S1 disc (disc bulged, pinched nerve), bulging disc between L4-L5, severe degeneration at L5-S1 with , L5-S1 spondylolisthesis ... I saw one neurologist a couple weeks ago and was told that my only option is a L5-S1 TLIF. I go in for my 2nd opinion 1st week of May as I did not like (or expect) her option.
L4-5 broad based disc buldge early posterior arthropathy at L5-S1 broad based disc buldge bilateral cet arthropathy narrowing of the bilateral neural foramen secondary to cet arthropathy, posterior osteophytosis and disc buldge.Active modic-type endplate degenerative changes. Dr. says my results werent bad and that I can try nerve blocks which I did and it helped for a limited time.
what is bi laterall hytrophy and synovitis? and what are mixed modic type 1 and type 2 underlying endplate changes? what would happen if i couldnt have the surgery any time soon, is this degenerative? I dont have any insurance.... i work part time as a cashier at walmart... my job couldnt aggravate my condition could it? if so how? thanks so much for your help!
I have degenerative disc changes with reduction in disc signal and disc height at L5/S1 There is Type 1 Modic endplate changes and a generalised annular disc bulge There is an incidental Tarlov Cyst in the Sacral Canal OA changes ae seen in the cet joints at L4/5 AND L5/S1 There is a small superficial synovial cyst related to the left cet joint at L4/5 I will be getting an Epidural for the pain - but are these all interconnected.
Minimal right and mild left neural foraminal stenosis secondary to combination of lateral extension of bulging disc/osteophyte and cet degenerative change. Minimal Modic Type II changes involving the anterior endplates at L3-L4 and L4-L5 Impression: 1. Post laminectomy and surgical fusion procedure L4-L5 and L5-S1, with no evidence of recurrent disc herniation, central canal, or neural stenosis at these levels. 2.
L4 dis space narrowing,the disc desiccation, and anterioir vertebral bod spurring is noted. there is a mild grade II (modic) changes of the anerioir vertebral body margins compatible with degenerative disc disease. there is in addition, an approx 3 to 4mm broad based disc herniation, which does extend toward the lateral recesses bilaterlly, slightly greater on the left. this does cause some mlld impression of the lateral reccess an base of the neural foramen on the right.
bulging disc causes moderate left neural foraminal stenosis and mild right neural foraminal stenosis. there are modic type two tty reparative changed at the end plates. and small focal hemangioma within L5 vertebral body... impression: spondylosis and disc disease at L4/l5 L5/S1. moderate narrowing at the left neural foramen at l5/s1 secondary to bulging disc... in other words(if i have this right) i have DDD, arthritis ,bulging disc, and collected blood vessels in my L5..
Prominent anterior spur formation noted with end-plate changes and modic signal changes. Posterior spondylitic ridging is noted with associated bulging of the disc and uncevertebral spurs. The subchondral cyst is noted in the right aspect of C6. AP diameter of the central canal is 8 mm in the mid sgittal plane. Posteriorly there is cet hypertrophy and spur formation left is greater than right.
Moderate disc space narrowing at c4-c5 and c5-c6 with mild to moderate narrowing at c6-c7. Moderate Modic type I endplate edema at c4-c5 and c5-c6. No pathologic marrow replacement process. Cervical cord demonstrates normal caliber and signal. No epidural fluid collection. Craniocervical junction is unremarkable. There is a lot more, but I will try to shorten it without losing info (i hope) mild bilateral foraminal stenosis.
EXTENSIVE SPONDYLOTIC CHANGES WITH LARGE OSTEPHYTES, MODIC TYPE II END PLATE SIGNAL CHANGES AND DISK DEGENERATION WITH NARROWING ARE SEEN THROUGHOUT THERE IS NEAR TOTAL OBLITERATION OF THE C5-6 DISK. SMALL SPONDYLOTIC DISK BULGES ARE SEEN AT MULTIPLE CERVICODORSAL AND LUMBAR LEVELS WITHOUT OBVIOUS FOCAL NEURAL COMPRESSION. LIGAMENTUM FLAVUM HYPERTROPHY WITH FACETAL ARTROPATHY IS ALSO SEEN AT MULTIPLE THORACIC LEVELS WITH THECAL SAC INDENTATION FROM THE POSTERIOR ASPECT.

The impression of MRI REPORT Degenerated L/S spine with L Para-central disc protrusion at L5-S1 causing compression of L sided existing nerve roots with diffuse central disc protrusion at L4-5 disc bulges at L2-3 and L3-4 with disc desiccations atL2-3 L3-4 ,L4-5 and L5-S1 levels, with modic type II changes at L4, L5, and S1 with posterior marginal Osteo puytoses seen at multiple levels.
Subchondral degenerative change of vertebral end-plates in lower-lumbo-sacral spine is seen. There is Modic Type II degenerative change of the end-plate detected at L5-S1 with ostephyte formation. The posterior articular pillars and cet joints show moderate degenerative hypertrophic changes with ligamentum flavum buckling. The neural foramina are patent. The disc spaces show normal hydration except at the lower lumbar spine.
Foci of high signal on T1-weighted and T2-weighted images are noted within the L1, L3, and S1, and within the right iliac bone, with decreased signal on STIR images, consistent with hemangiomas. Modic-type degenerative changes are noted to the endplates of L5-S1. Bone marrow signal Is otherwise normal. 12-L1: The disc is normally hydrated. No disc bulge, central Canal stenosis, or neural foraminal narrowing.L1-L2: The disc is normally hydrated.
She went to a Parkinsons specialist March who determined it was Vascular parkinsonism due to 3 small strokes that showed on her MRI. He did not change her medications. The senimet seemed to be controling her hypertension which she as had problems with for years. Her history also includes 3 lumbar fusions. She has been taking low doses of Prozac and Valium for several years. She also takes Darvicet regularly for pain. Her codition had deteriorated over the past several months.

I recently had an MRI on my lower back and neck I wonder what sever disc height loss with modic 1 end plate changes at L3-L4 means on the lower back. Also Disc desiccation is seen at multiple levels. L3-L4 show mild inferior neuroforaminimal narrowing bilaterally.
i had a mri done and here are the findings thoracic degenerative changes in vertebral body end plates of lower thoratic and mid thoratic spine accompanied by degenerative narrowing and modic changes at c5-c6 and t7-t8-t9-t10 lumbarthere is some focal areas on t1-t2 involving the second sacral segments mostly reflective of several focal hemangimoas l3-l4 disc bulging broad base disc protrussion at l4-l5 mild central canal stenosis and minimal bilateral neuroforaminal stenisis po
C5-6 level demo marked disc hight loss and end plate osteophytosis as well as Modic type 2 changes. no significate central canal stenosis is ident. Mild to moderate bilateral neuroforaminal stenosis is seen. C6-7 level demonstrates moderate to marked bilateral uncovertebral degenerative changes as well as posterior disc osteophyte. This flattens the cervical cord anteriorly. No signi stenosis ident. There is moderate to marked bilateral neuroforaminal stenosis at this level.
Spine There is evidence of significant end plate irregularity and signal alteration at L5/S1 level showing hyper intense signal both on T1 and T2 suggestive of modic type II degenerative changes. There is evidence of disc dessication and right postero lateral herniation at L5/S1 level causing significant compression to the thecal sac and right sided S1 traversing nerve roots.
what am I looking at on my MRI that says L4-5 mild degnerative disk disease is present in addition to annular bulge and associated Modic end plate change. Moderate left sided degenerative cet disease is present encroaching the posterior aspect of each neural foramen resulting in slight mass effect on the left L5 nerve root. also minimal cet arthropathy results in minimal retrolisthesis and pseudodisc formation.
DO you experience dizziness, weakness, vision changes? If so, this could be cardivascular in nature, not neurolgic. Do you have any pain or swelling in your legs/feet. This could also be cardivascular. Or, you could have vertigo. There is a modication commonly used to correct this. Are you diabetic? The problem could be endocrine. Make sure to follow up with your doc. If you experience chest pain, shortness of breath, severe weakness go to the ER!
At L5-S1 ther is dilation, loss of disc height, marginal osteophytes at the end plates, and type 2 Modic changes at the endplates.
