Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Tlmn / F / 34 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhtekar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with radiation of pain to BLE with paresthesias.
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.
FEW IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
There is posterior wedging of the L4 vertebral body. The L1-L2 and L3-L4 intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
Posterior disc bulges are noted at the L1-L2, L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining 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 S1 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
16.0 mm at L1-L2
16.0 mm at L2-L3
15.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Posterior wedging of the L4 vertebral body.
2. Posterior disc bulges at the L1-L2, L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
