Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzati lmn / F / 55 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzlkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the IAM.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O tinnitus in the left ear with decreased hearing since 1 year.
M.R.I of the brain (IAM) was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
MR Cisternogram was also obtained.
There is a small bright focus on the proton and T2 Weighted images in the medulla oblongata on the right. This lesion appears hypointense on the T1 Weighted images (scans 102.4,5)
There is no other focal area of altered signal intensity within the brain parenchyma.
The seventh and eighth cranial nerve complex on either side are unremarkable.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. There is slight 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.

Incidental note is made of mild inflammatory changes in the left mastoid air cells.
1. Altered signal in the midbrain on the right may be ischemic in etiology.
2. Mild inflammatory changes in the left mastoid air cells.
