Name of the Patient : Abc XyzYlmn / F / 12 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzshi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O neurocysticercosis, detected in September 0000. No complaints at present.
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 T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is still seen a well marginated, approximately 9.0 mms diameter sized intermediate signal intensity mass lesion on the T1 Weighted images in the body of the right lateral ventricle, along the superior margin of the choroid plexus on the right. This lesion is probably inclose relation to the lateral wall of the body of the right lateral ventricle. This lesion appears hypointense on the proton and T2 Weighted images. Another, similar signal intensity lesion is noted along the medial wall of the body of the right lateral ventricle, measuring aproximately 4.0 mms in diameter (scans 104.13, 102.13).
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma, per se.
The left 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.
Subcentimeter lesions in the body of the right lateral ventricle along its lateral and medial walls, superiorly, as described, are not specific for a single etiology. These lesions may represent hamartomas/calcified granulomas/tubers.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change noted.
