Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Shlmn / F / 24 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc XyzShetty / Dr. Abc Xyzhoni.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache since 10 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 is a small posterior disc herniation at the L5-S1 level with anterior indentation of the thecal sac.
A small posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs 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 S2 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
19.0 mm at L1-L2
16.0 mm at L2-L3
16.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
The sacro-iliac joints were further studied with the help of 4 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images and 4 mm thick STIR axial images, which do not reveal any diagnostic feature of note.
1. A small posterior disc herniation at the L5-S1 level with anterior indentation of the thecal sac.
2. A small posterior disc bulge at the L4-L5 level.
