Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzh Milmn / M / 29 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznna.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the LLE with numbness.
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.
The L5 vertebral body is as marked on the film.
There is loss of water content of the L3-L4 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs.
There is a fairly large, left postero-lateral disc herniation at the L5-S1 level with left neural foraminal narrowing and indentation upon the traversing left S1 nerve root.
A minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
Slight facetal hypertrophy is noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
- 2 - Scan-00003/64
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
18.0 mm at L1-L2
18.0 mm at L2-L3
16.0 mm at L3-L4
14.0 mm at L4-L5
10.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. A fairly large, left postero-lateral disc herniation at the L5-S1 level with indentation upon the traversing left S1 nerve root.
2. Slight facetal hypertrophy at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
