Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzanglmn / M / 71 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzauhan.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.

CLINICAL PROFILE :

C/O backache radiating to BLE (left more than right) with numbness in the LLE.

EXAMINATION :

M.R.I of the lumbo-sacral spine was performed using the following parameters :

4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.

5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.

OBSERVATION :

Posterior disc herniations are seen to indent the thecal sac and narrow both neural foramina at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels. A disc portion is seen to lie within the left lateral recess of the L4 vertebra with resultant impingement of the traversing left L4 nerve root.

A postero-central disc herniation is seen to indent the thecal sac at the L5-S1 level.

Bilateral far lateral (extraforaminal) disc herniations are noted at the L3-L4 level. Bilateral far lateral (extraforaminal) disc bulges are noted at the L2-L3 and L4-L5 levels.

The L4-L5 and L5-S1 facet joints show severe hypertrophic degenerative changes. Mild hypertrophic degenerative changes of the facet joints are noted at the L1-L2, L2-L3 and L3-L4 levels. There is ligamentum flavum hypertrophy at the L5 level.

The lumbar intervertebral discs show loss of water content. The lumbar vertebral bodies show spotty areas of fatty replacement of normal marrow suggestive of osteoporotic changes.

A cortical cyst is noted at the superior pole of the right kidney.

The visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.

The conus medullaris terminates at the D12-L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S1 level.

The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :

11.0 mm at L1-L2
11.0 mm at L2-L3
9.0 mm at L3-L4
12.0 mm at L4-L5
10.0 mm at L5-S1.

IMPRESSION :

The MRI features are suggestive of :

1. Posterior disc herniations at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels with canal stenosis at these levels. A disc portion is seen to lie within the left lateral recess of the L4 vertebra with resultant impingement of the traversing left L4 nerve root.

2. A postero-central disc herniation at the L5-S1 level.

3. Bilateral far lateral (extraforaminal) disc herniations at the L3-L4 level.

4. Severe hypertrophic facetal arthropathy at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.

5. Mild hypertrophic facetal arthropathy at the L1-L2, L2-L3 and L3-L4 levels.
