Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzkar Ghotlmn / M / 65 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzra.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O radicular pain in the RLE since 4 months.
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 suggestion of sacralization of the L5 vertebral body and the L3 vertebral body is as marked on the film. Correlation with plain radiographs would be worthwhile
There is mild retroplacement of the L4 over the L5 vertebra.
A right paracentral disc herniation is seen at the L4-L5 level with indentation upon the right L5 nerve root.
Small posterior disc herniations are noted at the D11-D12 and L1-L2 levels.
The lumbar intervertebral discs except for the L2-L3 and L5-S1 discs show loss of water content.
The lumbar vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the D12-L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the L5 level.
- 2 - scan-00007
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
14.0 mm at L1-L2
14.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
12.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Sacralization of the L5 vertebral body.
2. A right paracentral disc herniation at the L4-L5 level with indentation upon the right L5 nerve root.
