Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O radicular pain to BLE since 10 years.
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 a small postero-central disc protrusion at the L5-S1 level. Mild hypertrophy of the left facet joint is seen at this level.
A small posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The remaining facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
A small area of focal fat deposition/hemangioma with fat content is seen in the L3 vertebra on the left side.
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 :
15.0 mm at L1-L2
16.0 mm at L2-L3
17.0 mm at L3-L4
18.0 mm at L4-L5
9.0 mm at L5-S1.
