Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzram S. Talmn / M / 35 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhtekar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE since 1 year.
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.
The L5 vertebral body is as marked on the film. There is loss of water content of the L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs. Small posterior disc bulges are noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
There is hypertrophy of the facet joints at the L5-S1 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.scan-00000
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :15.0 mm at L1-L216.0 mm at L2-L315.0 mm at L3-L414.0 mm at L4-L510.0 mm at L5-S1.IMPRESSION :Small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels. As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00 (study 0000)
there is more desiccation of L4-L5 intervertebral disc and this disc now appears reduced in height. There is however no change in the size of the disc bulges over these levels.
