Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the RLE since 28th April 0000.
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 is loss of water content of the L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs.
Small postero-central protruded disc with peridiscal osteophyte is noted at the L5-S1 level. Type II degenerative marrow changes are noted adjacent to this disc.
Minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
The rest of the lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining 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-L2 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 :
21.0 mm at L1-L2
20.0 mm at L2-L3
21.0 mm at L3-L4
19.0 mm at L4-L5
17.0 mm at L5-S1.
Degenerated lower lumbar discs with a small postero-central protruded disc with peridiscal osteophytes at the L5-S1 level.
