Identifying A Bilateral Foraminal Stenosis
What does loss of normal disc signal mean on the report? Also what is bilateral foraminal stenosis?
It means that the disc is becoming dry, or in other words, degenerated (getting old). The stenosis means that there is not much room for the nerve to move around.
