Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzasad Milmn / M / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc XyzR>
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures since 0000. On anti-epileptics. Detected to have left fronto-temporal glial cell tumor. Has received radiotherapy.
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.
There is still seen slight thickening of the left insular cortex. The gyri in the left anterior and medial temporal poles and in the left inferior frontal region posteriorly still appear hypointense to normal grey matter on the T1 Weighted images and hyperintense on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images.
There is mild dilatation of both the lateral and third ventricles. The fourth ventricle is normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Incidentally noted is a mega cisterna magna. The nasal septum is deviated to the right.
Altered signal in the left inferior frontal and temporal lobe gyri as described, most likely represents a cortical astrocytoma.
As compared to the previous MRI (study no:0000) dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change noted.
