Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzh.
Examination: M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O low back pain .
M.R.I. of the lumbo-sacral spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images
There is loss of water content of the L2-L3 intervertebral disc.
There is anti-clockwise rotation of the upper lumbar vertebrae.
There is Grade I spondylolisthesis of the L5 over the S1 vertebra, with spondylolysis at L5, bilaterally. A resultant, small pseudo-posterior disc bulge is noted at the L5-S1 level.
A small posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
Schmorls nodes are noted in the upper lumbar region.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
13.0 mm at L1-L2
- 2 -
13.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
15.0 mm at L5-S1.
Grade I spondylolisthesis of the L5 over the S1 vertebra, with spondylolysis at L5, bilaterally, with a small, pseudo-posterior disc bulge at the L5-S1 level.
