Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O low back pain with pain in the region of the pubic symphysis since 6 months.
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.
Small posterior disc bulges are seen at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The lumbar facet joints appear slightly hypertrophied.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. 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 S1 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
16.0 mm at L1-L2
14.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
13.0 mm at L4-L5
12.0 mm at L5-S1.
The region of the pubic symphysis was studied with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR axial images and does not reveal any significant feature of note.
1. Small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
2. Slight hypertrophy of the lumbar facet joints.
