Name of the Patient : Abc XyzRalmn / M / 65 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzai.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O difficulty in speaking since 1 year.
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.
There is mild dilatation of both the lateral and the third ventricles with fullness of the fourth ventricle.
There are small bright foci on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the fronto-parietal white matter. These are isointense to hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are most likely ischemic in etiology.
Hyperintense areas are noted on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the periventricular deep white matter and these are most likely ischemic in etiology.
There is slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
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 :
1. Areas of altered signal intensity within the fronto-parietal white matter and in the periventricular deep white matter and these are most most likely ischemic in etiology.
2. Mild cerebral cortical and cerebellar atrophy.
