Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz M. Rampuralmn / M / 37 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzapadia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorso-lumbar Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE since 1 month.
H/O fall 4 years back.
M.R.I of the dorso-lumbar 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.
There is slight anterior wedging of the D12 vertebral body with focal fatty marrow changes, which may be the sequelae of previous trauma. The D11-D12 intervertebral disc shows loss of water content. Irregularity of the superior cortical margin of the D12 is noted. A small posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophytes is noted at the D11-D12 level. A schmorls node is also noted along the inferior margin of the D12.
The rest of the visualized dorso-lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorso-lumbar spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level.
1. Slight anterior wedging of the D12 vertebral body with focal fatty marrow changes most likely the sequelae of previous trauma.
2. A small posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophytes at the D11-D12 level.
