Name of the Patient : Abc XyzDlmn / F / 25 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to BLE (left more than right) with paresthesias since 2-3 years.
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 sacralization of the L5 vertebra.
There is probable spondylolysis at L4, bilaterally without obvious listhesis (scans 105.4,5). (Kindly correlate with plain radiographs).
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. 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 :
17.0 mm at L1-L2
18.0 mm at L2-L3
18.0 mm at L3-L4
16.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Sacralization of the L5 vertebra.
2. Probable spondylolysis at L4, bilaterally without obvious listhesis.
