Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzkumar lmn / M / 45 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat / Dr. Abc Xyznna.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with paresthesias.
H/O vehicular accident 4 months back.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
FEW IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION, INSPITE OF SEDATION.
The mid-dorsal and the D8-D9 intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
A small, right paracentral protruded disc is noted at the D8-D9 level.
An extrapleural lesion is seen on the left side at the D9 level. This is iso to hypointense to the normal muscles on the T1 Weighted images and appears heterogeneously hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images. This lesion is the sequelae of previous intercostal drainage.
The visualized dorsal vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity. There is no cord compression.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
An extrapleural lesion on the left side at the D9 level is due to previous intercostal drainage.
