Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzo Blmn / M / 65 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz Mehta.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches, giddiness, gait imbalance since 15 days.
Also C/O fever with chills since June 0000.
Known hypertensive & diabetic. On Rx.
H/O Pulmonary Kochs detected 00.00.00. On AKT since then.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
There are foci of hyperintensity on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images within corona radiata and centrum semiovale bilaterally. These are iso to hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are most likely ischemic in etiology.
Small areas with similar signal characteristics are noted in the periventricular white matter bilaterally.
There is mild fullness of the ventricular system. There is prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Incidental note is made of pansinusitis.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of altered signal intensity within the corona radiata, centrum semiovale and in the periventricular white matter bilaterally and these are most likely ischemic in etiology.
