Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzati Kollmn / F / 45 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzagwati.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O radicular pain to the LLE.
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 scoliosis of the lumbar spine with convexity to the left.
There is a left postero-lateral disc herniation at the L3-L4 level.
Small posterior disc bulges are seen at the L2-L3 and L5-S1 levels and a left far lateral disc bulge at the L4-L5 level. The lumbar intervertebral disc except the L1-L2 and L5-S1 discs show loss of water content.
The lumbar vertebral bodies 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 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 :
13.0 mm at L1-L2
15.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
12.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
The visualized pelvis and hip joints does not reveal any diagnostic feature of note.
1. Scoliosis of the lumbar spine with convexity to the left.
2. A left postero-lateral disc herniation at the L3-L4 level.
3. Small posterior disc bulges at the L2-L3 and L5-S1 levels.
4. A left far lateral disc bulge at the L4-L5 level.
Compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change noted.
