Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzra Mahlmn / M / 18 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzshi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Left Thigh.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the left thigh since 1 year.
M.R.I. of the left thigh was performed using the following parameters :
10 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
6 mm thick STIR and T1 Weighted coronal images.
6 mm thick T1 Weighted and GRASS sagittal images.
There is evidence of an irregularly defined mass lesion within the left vastus medialis muscle in the middle third of the left thigh extending over a distance of approximately 10.0 cms. The inferior aspect of this lesion is located at the distance of approximately 12 - 13 cms from the left knee joint.
This lesion is predominantly hyperintense on all the pulse sequences. A few serpingeneous signal voids suggestive of vessels are seen within this lesion. A few punctate hypointensities on the GRASS images within this lesion may represent paramagnetic substances/calcium/fibrous tissue.
The visualized portion of the left femur shows normal signal intensity. There is no obvious bony destruction or erosion.
The fat planes around the muscles are unremarkable.
The MRI features are suggestive of a mass lesion within the left vastus medialis muscle in the middle third of the left thigh extending over a distance of approximately 10.0 cms. as described. This most likely represents a neoplasm like a hemangioma. The possibility of this being another neoplasm like a soft tissue sarcoma cannot be excluded.
