Name of the Patient : Abc XyzPrabhudlmn / M / 31 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrman.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O momentary haziness with mild headaches.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
4 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
Areas which are iso to hyperintense to CSF on all the pulse sequences is seen within the posterior aspect of the left cerebellar hemisphere. These would represent areas of cystic encephalomalacia.
A focus with similar signal characteristics is seen within the thalamus on the left side and would represent a lacune.
There is mild prominence of the cerebellar folia bilaterally.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Areas of cystic encephalomalacia within the posterior aspect of the left cerebellar hemisphere.
2. A lacune within the thalamus on the left side.
