CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the LLE with paresthesias.
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 are small posterior disc bulges with small posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels.
The facet joints at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels appear slightly hypertrophied.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the 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 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
18.0 mm at L2-L3
16.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
12.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Small posterior disc bulges with small posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels.
2. Slight hypertrophy of the facet joints at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
