- Hemodynamic measurements are c/w normal perfusion pressures.
- Proximal waveforms show no evidence of significant aortoiliac disease.
- No significant plaquing is noted.
- Normal distal doppler flow velocity profile with normal peak velocities.
Net Result: Normal.
For some reason, they got in their head that I was born in 1963 instead of 1969. So they're comparing me to a 44-year-old baseline instead of a 38-year-old. Whether that will impact the findings, I don't know. But the report says:
The bone marrow signal demonstrates mild Modic Type II degenerative signal inferior endplate L1. There [sic] Schmorl's nodes superior and inferior endplate L1 as well as superior endplate L2. The conus is normal and ends at L1.
L1-L2: Mild disc desiccation and bulge of the annulus. No spinal stenosis.
L4-L5: Disc desiccation with small central protrusion.
L5-S1: Disc desiccation with mild bulging annulus
Impression: Mild multilevel dis disease. No spinal stenosis or compromise of the exiting nerve roots.
Net Result: Mild, normal changes. Otherwise normal.
So ... neither test showed much. Which is great, except that my leg still hurts. :P I go back to the doc a week from Tuesday, hopefully something will come of it.
