At the l5 s1 level there is quite marked intervertebral disc space narrowing. There is a large left paracentral and central disc bulge. This measures 8mm anteroposterior. This is contacting and displacing the traversing left s1 nerve root
And is contributing to moderate to severe left-sided exit foraminal stenosis, likely impinging upon the exiting left l5 nerve root also. There is moderate bilateral facet joint degenerative change at this level. There is mild right-side exit
Stenosis only at this level. At the l4-5 level there is minimal intervertebral disc space narrowing disc desiccation. There is mild bilateral facet joint degenerative change. There is no significant disc bulge, there is no further significant disc bulge,
Spinal exit foraminal stenosis at any level.
