Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlmn / M / 76 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz. Shah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O severe vertigo with gait imbalance and decreased hearing on the right side.
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.
MR cisternogram was obtained in the coronal plane.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There are hyperintense areas in the left corona radiata and the left posterior 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.
The seventh and eighth cranial nerve complex on either side are unremarkable.
There is mild dilatation of both the lateral and third ventricles. The fourth ventricle is normal. There is prominence of the cerebral cortical sulcal spaces and cerebellar folia bilaterally. There is slight prominence of the basal cisterns.
There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
1. Altered signal in the left corona radiata and the left posterior parietal deep white matter are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
2. Cerebral and cerebellar atrophy.
