Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzalmn / F / 45 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzgla.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O left sided hemifacial spasm since 1 year.
C/O pain in the LUE and LLE since with fever 2 months.
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 coronal images.
Limited MRA (source images) and MR Cisternogram in the coronal plane were obtained.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma.
A large vascular loop is seen to deform 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. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features are suggestive of a large vascular loop deforming the root exit zone of the left facial nerve.
