Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Chattelmn / F / 35 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache since 1 year which has increased since 2 months.
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.
There is slight retroplacement of the L5 over the S1 vertebra. A small pseudoposterior disc herniation is seen at the L5-S1 level with mild inferior migration. This disc shows loss of water content.
Type II degenerative changes are noted in the antero-superior portion of the L5 vertebra.
The rest of 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 L1-L2 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 :
21.0 mm at L1-L2
20.0 mm at L2-L3
19.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
13.0 mm at L5-S1.
Slight retroplacement of the L5 over the S1 vertebra with a small pseudoposterior disc herniation at the L5-S1 level.
