Hello,

The MRI report shows pathology involving the nerve root L4. There is stenosis or narrowing of foramin through which the nerve root L4 is leaving the spinal canal. This stenosis is caused due to formation of granulation tissue.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shailja Puri, Pathologist and Microbiologist
