Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzalmn / F / 39 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE (left more than right) since 0000 (on & off) with numbness which has increased since 3-4 days.
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 are small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels with indentation upon the thecal sac at the L4-L5 level.
The lumbar intervertebral discs show slight loss of water content.
The right kidney is not visualized in it normal position.
The lumbar vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. 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 S1 level.
- 2 - scan-00000
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
19.0 mm at L1-L2
21.0 mm at L2-L3
21.0 mm at L3-L4
19.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
The cervical and dorsal spines were screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images which do not reveal any significant feature of note.
The MRI features are suggestive of small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
