Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzc lmn / M / 65 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzatil.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O slurred speech with left facial weakness since 00.00.00.
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 and Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
There are hyperintense areas on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the right fronto-parietal region along the cortex and in the subcortical white matter and in the right centrum semiovale. These are iso to hypointense to white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
Similar areas are seen in the periatrial white matter bilaterally.
There is slight fullness of both the lateral ventricles. The third and the fourth ventricles are normal. There is mild prominence of the cerebellar folia bilaterally. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Areas of altered signal in the right fronto-parietal region along the cortex and in the subcortical white matter and in the right centrum semiovale in the periatrial white matter are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
