Name of the Patient : Abc XyzKotlmn / F / 20 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O cysticercus granuloma in the left temporo-parietal cortex. No complaints at present.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
4 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
After contrast administration, 5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial (with magnetization transfer) images, sagittal images and 3 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images (with magnetization transfer).
There is seen a very small, enhancing focus in the left fronto-temporal cortex, best appreciated on the coronal post-contrast scan (as marked by a label in film no.VI). This lesion is not well appreciated on the unenhanced scan, though there is a suspicion on the FLAIR coronal images (scan 105.12) and proton density images (scan 103.12).
There is no other focal area of altered signal intensity within the brain parenchyma.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
There is no other focal area of abnormal enhancement in the brain parenchyma or the meninges.
A very small enhancing focus in the left temporo-parietal cortex as described represents the residue of previous granuloma.
As compared to the previous MRI (scan no:0000) dated 00.00.00, there is slight decrease in the size of the lesion.
