Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzdan lmn / M / 57 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhtekar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
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 L1-L2 and L4-L5 intervertebral discs with reduction in height of the L1-L2 disc.
Small posterior disc bulges are noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels. A small left far lateral protruded disc is noted at the L5-S1 level.
Posterior peridiscal osteophyte with a posterior disc bulge is identified at the L1-L2 level.
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 L2 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S3 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
20.0 mm at L1-L2
20.0 mm at L2-L3
20.0 mm at L3-L4
19.0 mm at L4-L5
19.0 mm at L5-S1.
Screening, T2 Weighted sagittal images of the dorsal spine do not reveal any significant feature of note.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
