Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Hlmn / F / 47 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzbharani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the LLE since 15 days.
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.
There is slight loss of water content of the lumbar intervertebral discs.
There is sacralization of the L5 vertebra.
A minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
The facet joints at the L4-L5 and L5 levels show hypertrophic degenerative changes with minimal right facet joint effusion.
A focal hypointense signal on T1 Weighted images is noted in the D11 vertebral body, which appears hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images. There is no bone erosion or destruction seen.
The lumbar vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
- 2 - Scan-00002
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
19.0 mm at L1-L2
19.0 mm at L2-L3
18.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
13.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Sacralization of the L5 vertebra.
2. A minimal posterior disc bulge at the L4-L5 level with hypertrophic facetal arthropathy at the L4-L5 and L5 levels.
3. A focal altered signal in the D11 vertebral body is of ? etiology ? marrow inhomogenity, ?? haemangioma.
