Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzsham Ylmn / M / 20 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzlwalkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE with paresthesias since 00.00.00.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
8 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is a hyperintense signal on the T2 Weighted images in the dorsal spinal cord over the D1 to D9 vertebral levels, centrally which appears iso to hypointense to normal cord on the T1 Weighted images. No significant increase in the size of the dorsal spinal cord over these levels is noted. A skip lesion of similar signal is noted in the dorsal spinal cord at the D10 and D11 vertebral levels.
The visualized dorsal vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
There is no cord compression.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
Altered signal in the dorsal spinal cord over the D1 to D9 vertebral levels, centrally and at the D10 and D11 vertebral levels may suggest myelitis/demyelination. No compressive pathology is identified.
