No acute fracture or traumatic malalignment
Circumferential epidural hematoma extending from the foramen magnum at least through the level of C5 with evaluation below the level of C5 limited by attenuation artifact from the shoulders. Resultant multilevel crowding of the spinal canal with areas of cord deformity, most notably along the left ventral aspect of the cord at the level of C3. MRI could further evaluate for associated cord or ligamentous injury if clinically indicated.
