Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzra Walmn / F / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzwhale.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE with paresthesias since 00.00.00.
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.
FEW IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
A small postero-central disc herniation is seen to indent the thecal sac at the L2-L3 level. This intervertebral disc shows loss of water content.
There are minimal posterior disc bulges at the L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The L4-L5 and L5-S1 facet joints show degenerative changes.
The L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs show slight loss of water content.
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 D12-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
12.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
13.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. A small postero-central disc herniation at the L2-L3 level.
2. Minimal posterior disc bulges at the L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
3. Facetal arthropathy at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
