Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Shlmn / F / 19 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures since childhood.
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 and T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma.
The head and body of the left hippocampus is slightly smaller in size as compared to the right. Resultant mild focal fullness of the temporal horn of the left lateral ventricle is noted. No signal change of the left hippocampal complex is however noted (scans 105.5-9, 106.5-9)..
The right hippocampal complex is unremarkable.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Inflammatory changes are noted in the mastoid air cells on the left side.
Slight decrease in the size of the left hippocampal complex as compared to the right, without change in signal intensity may suggest hippocampal atrophy.
