Advice & Tips: At C5-C6 there is a disc-osteophyte complex measuring 4mm in the left paracentral and foraminal distribution, which contributes to moderate left foraminal stenosis. Minimal right foraminal narrowing. The spinal AP thecal diameter is 9mm. At C6-7 there is a small posterocentral disc protrusion measuring 2mm.
