Name of the Patient : Abc XyzChelmn / F / 68 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzchale.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O submandibular adenitis. Operated 3 months back. On AKT since then.
C/O seizures since 2 days.
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.
3 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There are hyperintense areas on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the periventricular deep white matter, bilateral corona radiata, centrum semiovale, thalami and the lentiform nuclei. These are hypointense to the white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
There is mild to moderate dilatation of both the lateral and the third ventricles. The fourth ventricle is normal. Slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci is noted in the frontal region. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Incidental note is made of an empty sella.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction in the periventricular deep white matter, bilateral corona radiata, centrum semiovale, thalami and the lentiform nuclei.
Thanks for the reference.
Please send the films back for a final report.
