Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzhlmn / F / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches since 5-6 years.
C/O giddiness since 1 week.
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.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is evidence of an area of hypointensity on the T1 Weighted images which turns hyperintense on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images within the left periatrial white matter.
There is mild prominence of the cerebellar folia bilaterally.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features are suggestive of an area of altered signal within the left periatrial white matter and this is not specific for a single diagnosis. This lesion may be ischemic in etiology or may represent a plaque of demyelination.
