Name of the Patient : Abc XyzAnlmn / M / 42 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzwant.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O right sided trigeminal neuralgia.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
MR Cisternogram was obtained in the coronal plane.
A limited MRA (source images) was obtained through the region of interest.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma.
Small vascular loops are seen adjacent to the cisternal component of both the trigeminal nerves. However they are not seen to deform the same.
There is mild fullness of the third and both the lateral ventricles. Also seen is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
The fourth ventricle is normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures.
Inflammatory changes are seen within the frontal sinus and right ethmoidal air cells. The nasal septum is deviated to the left side.
The left intraocular lens is not seen, probably a result of previous surgery.
The MRI features are suggestive of small vascular loops adjacent to the cisternal component of both trigeminal nerves.
