Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzdy.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain in the left paraspinal region since 00.00.00.
H/O lifting heavy weights.
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 loss of water content of the L5-S1 intervertebral disc.
There is a small, left paracentral protruded disc at the L5-S1 level with minimal indentation on the traversing left
S1 nerve root.
A minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
The lumbar 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 conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S1-S2 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
17.0 mm at L1-L2
17.0 mm at L2-L3
17.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
12.0 mm at L5-S1.
Degenerated L5-S1 intervertebral disc with a small, left paracentral protruded disc at that level, minimally indenting the traversing left S1 nerve root.
