Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Slmn / F / 41 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O radicular pain in the LUE and LLE since 8 months.
M.R.I of the cervical spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
4 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images with fat saturation.
There are multiple serpingeneous signal voids at the C1/C2 level, just to the left and lateral to the thecal sac and in the left paraspinal soft tissues. This may represent a vascular malformation.
The cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The cervical vertebral bodies show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The MRI features are suggestive of multiple vessels at the C1/C2 level, just to the left and lateral to the thecal sac and in the left paraspinal soft tissues and this may represent a vascular malformation.
