What does degenerative disc disease and no signal abnormality within the cord or enhancement mean?
Degenerative disc disease = “worn out” degenerated disks in your spine
No signal abnormality = spinal cord looks normal, no abnormal signal suggesting disease or damage
No enhancement = the spinal cord is not taking up contrast die. This would suggest inflammation, infection or cancer
