CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE since 0000.
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.
A minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
Slight facetal hypertrophy is seen at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
A baggy right S1 nerve root sleeve is noted (scan 104.3).
