Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Rampuralmn / F / 68 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzpadia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the LLE with paresthesias since 1 year.
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 partial sacralization of the L5 vertebra on the left.
There is loss of water content of the lumbar intervertebral discs.
Posterior disc bulges with posterior peridiscal osteophytes are noted at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels, indenting the dural theca anteriorly.
Slight hypertrophy of the facet joints is seen at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels bilaterally.
The lumbar vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The remaining 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 :
14.0 mm at L1-L2
13.0 mm at L2-L3
12.0 mm at L3-L4
10.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Partial sacralization of the L5 vertebra on the left.
2. Posterior disc bulges with posterior peridiscal osteophytes at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels.
3. Slight hypertrophy of the facet joints at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels bilaterally.
