Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzndhi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the RLE with paresthesias since 2-3 months. H/O fall in March 0000.
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.
Fat is noted in the filum terminale at the L2 and L3 levels and which may be a normal variant.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the 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 D12-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 :
17.0 mm at L1-L2
17.0 mm at L2-L3
18.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
The dorso-lumbar spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images and which shows a small posterior disc bulge at the D11-D12 level with small peridiscal osteophytes.
