    I got my mri film and report back today. I am going to the neuro surgeon with the film and report next week.I read it and it mentions The Neural Foramen are Grossly Patent.
    I know we're not dr's here, but I was wondering if anyone remembers there mri on there back. I have excessive pain in my lower back, and am hoping the dr can subside it.

    you either call them and ask someone to explain that to you, or try a google search with those key words. I've had so many MRI's on my back I can't remember, and have had 2 surgeries for ruptured disks. I read the reports and a lot of it was medical-ese and I couldn't understand it, but looking at the actual films told me what I needed to know.
