Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlmn / M / 57 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzlkaka.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O gait imbalance since 10 days with paresthesias in the LUE and BLE.
M.R.I of the dorsal 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 D1-D2 to D4-D5 and D8-D9 intervertebral discs.
There is a right paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the D8-D9 level, indenting the dorsal spinal cord at this level.
The visualized dorsal 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 dorsal spinal cord shows normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
Screening T1 Weighted sagittal images of the lumbo-sacral spine reveal small posterior disc bulges in the lower lumbar region.
Right paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the D8-D9 level.
