Name of the Patient : Abc XyzGanglmn / M / 71 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O giddiness with chest pain and tremors in the RUE since 1 year.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
3 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is a hyperintense area in the right corona radiata on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images. This is hypointense to the normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and is suggestive of an area of infarct.
Hyperintense areas are noted in the periventricular and fronto-parietal deep white matter on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images. These are isointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
Virchow Robins spaces are noted in the lentiform nuclei bilaterally.
No obvious mass lesion is seen in the region of the tectum.

Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. There is prominence of the cortical sulcal spaces in the fronto-parietal regions bilaterally. 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 thinning of the corpus callosum at the junction of the body with the splenium.
1. An infarct in the right corona radiata.
2. Altered signal in the periventricular and fronto-parietal deep white matter suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
