Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzna Mitlmn / F / 23 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzo.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O pituitary adenoma.
M.R.I of the sella and perisellar region was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
There is still seen an approximately 5.0 mms diameter sized, well-defined, hypointense lesion on the T1 Weighted images along the superior margin of the anterior pituitary gland, in the midline. This lesion appears slightly hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images. The pituitary stalk shows normal thickness and is in the midline.
The posterior pituitary gland reveals normal hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images. The cavernous sinuses and the suprasellar cistern are unremarkable.
Septae are noted within the sphenoid sinus.
There is no significant abnormality on the T2 Weighted axial images of the brain.
As compared to the previous MRI (study no:0000) dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change noted.
A Rathke cleft cyst should be considered as a differential diagnosis.
