Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Nilmn / F / 68 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah / Dr. Abc Xyztrak.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O weakness of BLE with bladder/bowel involvement.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
8 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
The visualized dorsal intervertebral discs show loss of water content. A few of the visualized dorsal vertebral bodies show areas of fatty replacement of normal marrow.
Facetal hypertrophy is seen on the left side at the D10-D11 and D8-D9 levels.
The rest of the visualized dorsal vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The remaining facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
The lumbo-sacral spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images and note is made of a Tarlovs perineural cyst on the right side at the S2 vertebral level.
The cervical spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images and which show mild degenerative changes.
No significant abnormality is detected within the dorsal spine on this study.
