Name of the Patient : Abc XyzKhlmn / M / 47 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzidhungat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O cysticercus detected on 00.00.00. On Rx.
For follow up.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is still seen a well marginated, approximately 7.0 mms diameter sized hyperintense lesion with a hypointense rim on the proton and T2 Weighted images in the subcortical white matter in the right posterior parietal region. This lesion is of intermediate signal on the T1 Weighted images. There is minimal perilesional edema. No definite scolex can be identified on this study.
The calcified lesion seen in the left high parietal region on CT Scan is not well-identified on this MRI study.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
An approximately 7.0 mms diameter sized lesion in the subcortical white matter in the right posterior parietal region as described follows the signal characteristics of a cysticercus in the colloid-vesicular stage.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00 (study no.00002), there is significant decrease in the perilesional edema. However, there is no significant change in the size of the lesion.
