Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzr Klmn / M / 53 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O altered sensorium since 8-10 days.
C/O left sided hemiplegia since 2 years.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
There are ill-defined, hyperintense areas on the T2 Weighted images in the periventricular white matter bilaterally and in the pons. These areas appear hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images.
Lacunar infarcts are noted in the lentiform nuclei bilaterally, right thalamus and in the left corona radiata, posteriorly.
There is mild to moderate dilatation of both the lateral and third ventricles. The fourth ventricle is normal. There is slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci, cerebellar folia and the basal cisternal spaces bilaterally. There is blunting of the cerebral peduncles bilaterally. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Incidentally noted is a mega cisterna magna.
Inflammatory changes are noted in the right frontal sinus, left maxillary antrum, sphenoid sinus and the ethmoidal air cells bilaterally.
1. Altered signal in the periventricular white matter bilaterally and in the pons most likely represent ischemic changes.
2. Lacunar infarcts in the lentiform nuclei bilaterally, right thalamus and in the left corona radiata, posteriorly
3. Mild cerebral and cerebellar atrophy with mild to moderate ventricular dilatation.
