Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzi Tlmn / F / 73 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O generalized weakness with gait ataxia and bladder/bowel involvement since 2 months.
M.R.I of the dorsal 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 dorsal intervertebral discs. The dorsal vertebral bodies show spotty fatty marrow changes suggesting osteoporosis. Anterior peridiscal osteophytes are noted in the dorsal region.
The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity. There is no cord compression.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level.
Screening, T1 Weighted sagittal images of the lumbar spine show evidence of spotty fatty marrow changes with degenerated discs at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels and slight facetal hypertrophy at these levels.
Osteoporotic changes in the visualized vertebrae of the spinal axis with degenerative changes in the lumbar spine as described.
No other significant abnormality is detected on this study.
