"otherwise unremarkable"

I just love the way radiologists dictate their reports. I can totally picture Dr. Olga (not her last name) reviewing my MRI films and huffing, "What is with this woman? There is nothing wrong with her! Why does she keep pestering us?" So then she dictates the report, which sounds like "blah blah blah show mild degenerative changes. Otherwise unremarkable MRI examination of the lumbar spine."

I know, this is a completely factual report and there is no "attitude" involved, but it still just cracks me up.

I am understandably relieved that there's nothing going on, disc-wise. It would appear that the piriformis issue is just causing different problems. Now I have to get my butt (literally) back to physical therapy.
