M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images.
A limited MRA (source image) and MR cisternogram (coronal plane) were obtained through the region of interest.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma.
A vascular loop is seen to indent the root exit zone of the left facial nerve.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures.
Note is made of pansinusitis.
The MRI features are suggestive of a vascular loop indenting the root exit zone of the left facial nerve.
