The physician who ordered the MRI is the person who can explain what these results mean and how they related to your medical condition.

I will give you the definition of these terms:
Neural foraminal stenosis can be defined or described as a constricted or narrow opening that nerves pass through.

Uncovertebral hypertrophy is a condition where the cartilage structures of the spine grow larger than they should, putting pressure on the spinal cord. Uncovertebral hypertrophy is an extra growth of cartilage between the vertebrae.

Central canal stenosis is defined as a narrowing in the spinal canal, which surrounds the spinal cord and provides exit routes for nerve roots
