Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O sudden onset of catch in back with radicular pain in BLE, paresthesias and bladder/bowel involvement 20 days back.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
8 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
Few upper dorsal and cervical intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The facet joints at the D9-D10 and D10-D11 levels show hypertrophic changes.
The visualized dorsal vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The remaining facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the D12-L1 level.
The cervico-dorsal spine was screened with the help of 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images which shows mild degenerative changes.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
