Small fracture is seen along the anterosuperior aspect of C5 vertebral body with displacement of the fractured fragment anteriorly and C5 vertebral body posteriorly with mild disorientation of the facets at C5-6 level. Slightly reduced intervertebral disc space also appreciated at C5-6 level. No widening of the interspinous space is noted. There is also widening of the prevertebral space at C5-6 level.
Overall imaging appearances are representing flexion teardrop fracture with mild facet disorientation secondary to recent trauma. The position and alignment as demonstrated on plain radiograph. Further evaluation with CT / MRI cervical spine is suggested.
