Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzz Jalmn / F / 18 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the RLE with paresthesias.
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.
A very mild posterior disc bulge is seen at the L5-S1 level.
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.
Note is made of a cystic lesion, anterior to the sacrum on the left side. This may represent an ovarian cyst (An ultrasound of the pelvis may be worthwhile).
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 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 :
14.0 mm at D12-L1
15.0 mm at L1-L2
15.0 mm at L2-L3
15.0 mm at L3-L4
12.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
No significant abnormality is detected within the lumbo-sacral spine on this study.
