medical mystery monday. scan of the lumbar spine. any guesses?
Realtime comments disabled
severe disc degeneration with some herniation and stenosis. Ouch. mom has same thing.
some anomaly-possibble spina bifida. would be more definitive is lower view
I see it, the patient is a merman! Half man/half fish, you can tell by the dorsal fin.
Scoliosis? Definitely a curvature of the lower lumbar
clear indication of kyphosis of spine
lumbar disc herniation at L5: treatment: endoscopic cannula for removal of a herniated disc
Old L1, L2 Compression Fx, with smorals node on superiour surface of T12, Osteoph. at L1 Ant. body. Could be an old seatbelt fx
CT,compression fx L1& L2, and something in the body of T9
i want to know what wrong with this ^^
compression # L1 & L2 with a lesion probably cystic in the body of D9
compresion # of L1 & L2 with a lesion probably cystic in the D9 vetebral body
ruptured disc/fracture @ L1-2 along with congenital deformity of spinal cord
A severe form of spinal Bifida called Meningomyelocele where you have a fully exposed portion of the spinal cord and nerves?
just a guess, but is this a foreign body due to an impalement?
Looks like L1 Chance Fracture.
Thats weird why Spinal cord is in front of Body of Vertebra !! Something Congenital misplaced
Compression fracture L1 and L2 - I hope they had a MRI also.
