Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhari.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to BLE with paresthesias 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.
MOTION ARTIFACTS ARE NOTED.
There is minimal forward translation of the L5 vertebra over the S1 vertebra with probable spondylolysis of the L5 vertebra. (Kindly correlate with plain radiographs). A minimal posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophytes is noted at the L5-S1 level.
A mild posterior disc bulge is seen at the L4-L5 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. 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.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
18.0 mm at L1-L2
17.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
13.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Minimal forward translation of the L5 vertebra over the S1 vertebra with probable spondylolysis of the L5 vertebra. (Kindly correlate with plain radiographs).
2. Minimal posterior disc bulge with peridiscal osteophytes at the L5-S1 level.
