Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrikh.
Examination : Screening M.R.I. of Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
? Parkinsonism since 2 years.
Now C/O difficulty in speech and aphasia since 16th of January 0000 with inability to walk.
The cervical, dorsal and lumbo-sacral spines were screened with :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
SOME IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
There is slight loss of water content of the cervical and upper dorsal discs and the L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs.
Small posterior peridiscal osteophytes is noted at the C4-C5 level.
Ligamentum flavum hypertrophy is noted at the C5 and C6 vertebral levels. Hypertrophy of the facet joint/capsular ligament complex is identified at the D11-D12 and D10-D11 levels.
Small postero-central protruded discs with peridiscal osteophytes are noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The visualized vertebral bodies show spotty fatty marrow changes suggesting osteoporosis.

The visualized prevertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity. There is no cord compression.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.
The screening MRI images of the spine reveal mild degenerative changes in the cervical, dorsal and lumbo-sacral regions as described.
No other significant abnormality is detected on this study.
