Name of the Patient : Abc XyzKathlmn / M / 40 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzndhi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the LLE with paresthesias since 6 months.
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 a small posterior disc bulge at the L5-S1 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs show normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 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 :
17.0 mm at L1-L2
18.0 mm at L2-L3
16.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
12.0 mm at L5-S1.
The dorso-lumbar spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images which shows a small posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophyte at the D10-D11 level. Schmorls node is also noted at this level.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
