Name of the Patient : Abc XyzSlmn / F / 45 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyztrak.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain and
Intracranial and Neck M.R.A.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O weakness of the left hand with giddiness since 1 day.
Known DM/HT. On Rx.
M.R.I. of the brain was performed using the following parameters:
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
Intracranial and neck MRA were performed with 3D TOF and 2D TOF sequences, respectively.
There are hyperintense areas on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the left frontal and high parietal region. These are isointense to the normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and would represent ischemic changes.
There is slight fullness of both the lateral ventricles. The third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures.
INTRACRANIAL MRA :
The petrous, cavernous and supraclinoid segments of the internal carotid arteries bilaterally show normal signal and calibre. The visualized anterior cerebral, middle cerebral, basilar, vertebral and posterior cerebral arteries also show normal signal, calibre and wall margins. No obvious aneurysm or vascular malformation is identified.
NECK MRA :
The common carotid arteries and their extracranial branches appear normal bilaterally. There are no vessel wall irregularities or stenosis of the vessels noted.
Altered signal in the left frontal and high parietal region would represent ischemic changes.
No significant abnormality is detected on the intracranial and neck MRA on this study.
