Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzttam Shlmn / M / 40 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzsai.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O right sided hemiparesis since 1 day.
Known C/O cirrhosis of liver since 1 year.
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 coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is a subtle hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images within the lentiform nuclei bilaterally. This may represent deposition of the paramagnetic substances.
There is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
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 hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images within the lentiform nuclei bilaterally and this may represent deposition of the paramagnetic substances.
Such features may be seen with acquired hepatocerebral syndromes.
