Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzh Jawalmn / M / 24 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz. Rana.
Examination : MR Venogram of the Left Lower Extremity.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O swelling over the LLE since 5-6 years.
The pelvis and both thighs were screened with 12 mm thick T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
MR Venogram of the LLE was performed using 2D TOF sequence in the axial plane.
There is no focal mass lesion identified in the visualized pelvis.
The visualized muscles of both thighs appear unremarkable.
There is increase in diameter of the left calf when compared to the right. This increase in diameter is due to increase in the bulk of subcutaneous tissues which appear hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images. The muscles of the left calf show normal signal intensity and appear normal in bulk.
MR venogram of the LLE reveals a slightly increased diameter of the left femoral and popliteal veins when compared to the right side. The left iliac veins are unremarkable. The visualized superfical and deep venous system of the left calf also appears slightly prominent, when compared to the right. Additional tributaries are noted on the left side emptying into the femoral vein and could be normal variant.
Increase in the bulk of the subcutaneous tissue of the left calf may be consistent with lymphedema. Slight prominence of the superficial and deep veins of the left calf and the deep veins of the left thigh is noted. No obvious mass lesion is identified in the visualized pelvis or in the muscles of the LLE.
