Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Mirlmn / F / 23 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzidhungat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the RLE with paresthesias since 00.00.00.
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 loss of water content of the L5-S1 intervertebral disc.
Small postero-central disc protrusion with posterior peridiscal osteophyte is noted at the L5-S1 level, indenting the dural theca anteriorly. Slight facetal hypertrophy is also noted at this level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the D12-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 :
18.0 mm at L1-L2
18.0 mm at L2-L3
18.0 mm at L3-L4
17.0 mm at L4-L5
13.0 mm at L5-S1.
Screening, T2 Weighted sagittal images of the dorsal spine do not reveal any significant feature of note.
Degenerated L5-S1 disc with a small postero-central protruded disc with peridiscal osteophyte at this level.
