Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz lmn / F / 32 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O severe backache radiating to the LLE since 2 months.
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.
There are very mild posterior disc bulges at the L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The L3-L4 intervertebral disc shows slight loss of water content.
The 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 uterus is retroverted and slightly bulky.
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 :
17.0 mm at L1-L2
16.0 mm at L2-L3
16.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
The MRI features are suggestive of very mild posterior disc bulges at the L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
