Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzik Jarilmn / M / 14 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzoshi.
Examination : Limited M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O myoclonic jerks.
Limited M.R.I of the brain was performed as requested using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
There is still seen a subtle diffuse, hyperintense signal on the T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the subcortical and deep white matter in the right fronto-parietal region and to a much lesser extent in the left posterior parietal region. These lesions appear hypo to nearly isointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images.
There is mild fullness of both the lateral and third ventricles.
The fourth ventricle is normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Inflammatory changes are noted in the maxillary antra bilaterally and in the left mastoid air cells.
Changes in the atlanto-axial region are described in the previous cervical spine study.
As compared to the previous MRI (study no:00009) dated 00.00.00, there is significant decrease in the size of the lesions in the right fronto-parietal and left posterior parietal regions. The lateral and third ventricles appear slightly full on the present study.
