Name of the Patient : Abc XyzC. Billimlmn / M / 50 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzlkaka.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache since 00.00.00.
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 is loss of water content of the L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs.
Small postero-central protruded disc with peridiscal osteophytes is noted at the L5-S1 level.
Small posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes are seen at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels.
Hypertrophic facetal arthropathy is noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels on the right side.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the D12-L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
18.0 mm at L1-L2
19.0 mm at L2-L3
15.0 mm at L3-L4
13.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Small postero-central protruded disc with peridiscal osteophytes at the L5-S1 level.
2. Small posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels.
3. Hypertrophic facetal arthropathy at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels on the right.
