Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzshar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorso-lumbar Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache since 2 years.
M.R.I of the dorso-lumbar spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
6 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
Few lower dorsal intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord shows normal signal intensity.
There is anterior wedging of the D6 and D8 vertebral bodies without any change in signal intensity.
The visualized dorso-lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining 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.
The cervico-dorsal spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images which show posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes at the C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels.
The lumbar spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images which does not reveal any diagnostic feature of note.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
