Preamble: many of these issues I bring are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice along with more family time. 

“Inferior Extrusion”

This was originally diagnosed as a disc bulge by the radiologist and it is not accurate. I strongly suggest a career in Walmart for that doctor as I am getting increasingly frustrated with so called “experts” working out of their specialty. This radiologist is known for his ability to read gastrointestinal images, yet chooses to read spine to the detriment of our patients. Thank goodness the chiropractor had gone through the training in MRI interpretation. 

Notice the high signal in the lesion. Although I am giving you the slice in the middle and the inferior portion of the disc, there was also a lesion with high signal in the superior portion of the extrusion, but I omitted that in this teaching set of slides.
