Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzed Hlmn / M / 35 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with fever since 2-3 months.
C/O weakness of BLE with bladder involvement since 20-22 days.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial images.
The lumbar spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images and the cervical spine was screened with 4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
SOME IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
There are patchy areas of enhancement within the dorsal spinal cord. Also seen is enhancement in the region of the conus-cauda and along the intrathecal nerve roots in the lumbar region.
In view of the pattern of enhancement the lesion within the dorsal spine (please see previous scan 00006 dated 00.00.00)
most likely represents myelitis with presence of arachnoiditis in the lumbar region.
The possibility of this being a neoplastic process is less likely.
