Name of the Patient : Abc XyzNevrlmn / F / 70 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznavati.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O right sided hemiplegia with aphasia since 2 days.
H/O HT +.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted , proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR and Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
FEW IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
There are diffuse areas of hypointensity on the T1 Weighted images which turn hyperintense on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images within the caudate nucleus and putamen on the left side and are most likely ischemic in etiology. There is mild indentation upon the frontal horn and body of the left lateral ventricle.
There is no evidence of haemorrhage.
Foci of hyperintensity on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images are seen in the fronto-parietal white matter bilaterally and these may be ischemic in etiology.
There is mild fullness of the third and both the lateral ventricles. Also seen is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
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.
The intraocular lens is not seen on the left side and this may be the result of previous cataract surgery.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of recent ischemia/infarction within the caudate nucleus and putamen on the left side.
