Name of the Patient : Abc XyzAlmn / M / 23 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz Hashim.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE with numbness since 2-3 years.
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.
Posterior disc bulges are seen to indent the thecal sac at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and 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
17.0 mm at L2-L3
17.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
10.0 mm at L5-S1.
The MRI features are suggestive of posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
