English translation:very little Portuguese here
Explanation:
All words are fragmentary except for lombo (loin); let me try to decipher some of it:

ressonaxio? -> resonance exam?

cd? -> probably indicates the side of the body where exam was performed

lombo-sacl? -> again, an abbreviation; it probably stands for lombo-sacral, indicating the loin-sacral region

This is all I can come up with, not being a doctor myself.

If it\'s on a piece of paper and you could get it scanned, maybe more people would be able to help. Sorry.

cd could very well mean \"cúbito dorsal\" or supine position.

You're right, very little PT there. I just wanted to check our guesswork, which was the same as yours.
