Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzustafa Anlmn / M / 74 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzsari.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the RLE since 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 is a small posterior disc bulge at the L4-L5 level with anterior indentation of the thecal sac. The L3-L4 and L4-L5 intervertebral discs show slight loss of water content.
Type II degenerative marrow changes are noted in the L4 and L5 vertebral bodies adjacent to the L3-L4 and L4-L5 intervertebral discs. A focal fatty change is seen in the L2 vertebral body.
The left facet joint at the L5-S1 level shows mild degenerative changes.
The rest of the lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of 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 S1 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
16.0 mm at L1-L2
15.0 mm at L2-L3
16.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
