Name of the Patient : Abc XyzDlmn / F / 35 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to the RLE since 3-4 years.
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 slight loss of water content of the L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs.
Small posterior disc bulges are noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels. Mild facetal hypertrophy is noted at the L4-L5 level.
Left far lateral (extraforaminal) disc bulges are also noted at these levels.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the 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.
Probable conjoint right sided L5 and S1 nerve root sleeves are noted.

The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
20.0 mm at L1-L2
19.0 mm at L2-L3
19.0 mm at L3-L4
13.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Small posterior and left far lateral (extraforaminal) disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
2. Probable right sided conjoint nerve root sleeves at the L5 and S1 levels.
3. Mild facetal hypertrophy at the L4-L5 level.
