Minimal soft tissue in anterior & left lateral epidural space of the .spinal canal at D11 vertebral & D12- L1 IV disk levels, producing compression of exiting & foraminal left nerve root at this level. A diffuse annular bulge with a propensity towards the left at L4-5, producing left IV neural foraminal narrowing & mild compression of thecal sac & exiting left nerve root.
