Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzhlmn / M / 35 yrs.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with paresthesias in BLE.
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 a postero-central disc herniation at the L5-S1 level with anterior indentation of the thecal sac.
The L5-S1 facet joints bilaterally and at the L4-L5 level on the left side show mild degenerative changes.
The L3-L4 intervertebral disc shows slight loss of water content.
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 L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.

15.0 mm at L3-L4
12.0 mm at L4-L5
8.0 mm at L5-S1.
