Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Dlmn / F / 42 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznkhara / Dr. Abc Xyzhah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache and neck pain radiating to BUE and the LLE with paresthesias since 2 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 posterior disc bulge at the L5-S1 level with anterior indentation of the thecal sac.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2-S3 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
16.0 mm at L1-L2
15.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
12.0 mm at L5-S1.
The dorsal spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images which does not reveal any diagnostic feature of note. The visualized dorsal spinal cord and the conus cauda show normal signal intensity.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
