Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzsh Bhulmn / M / 28 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzatt.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures since 00.00.00. Last episode on 00.00.00. Treated for cysticercus.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted, T2 Weighted and FLAIR coronal images.
There is seen an approximately 1.4 x 1.6 cms sized, well-marginated intermediate signal intensity mass lesion on the T1 Weighted images in the right fronto-parietal cortex. This lesion turns appreciably hypointense on the T2 Weighted and FLAIR images with a peripheral hyperintense rim. There is perilesional edema with effacement of the sucal spaces and minimal indentation on the right lateral ventricle.
The left lateral , third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midlinse structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
An approximately 1.4 x 1.6 cms sized, lesion in the right fronto-parietal cortex follows the signal characteristics of a tuberculoma.
As compared to the previous MRI (study no. 0000) dated 00.00.00, there is an increase in the size of the lesion and the perilesional edema.
