Name of the Patient : Abc XyzPlmn / F / 65 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzoshi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Sterno-clavicular joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O swelling over the right sterno-clavicular joint since 1 week.
Known hypertensive. On Rx.
M.R.I of the right sterno-clavicular joint was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation)
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) and STIR coronal images.
There are areas of hypointensity on the T1 Weighted which turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images within the right sterno-clavicular joint space per se and most likely represents fluid. The medial end of the right clavicle and the adjacent sternum do not show any marrow changes (scans 105.10, 108.10, 107.13, 109.9)
The left sterno-clavicular joint is unremarkable.
The visualized soft tissues around the sterno-clavicular joints are unremarkable (Artifactual bright signal is seen on the T2 Weighted axial images in the subcutaneous tissues because of uneven supression of fat).
The MRI features are suggestive of fluid within the right sterno-clavicular joint space per se as described.
