Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Hulmn / M / 70 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzatt.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O forgetfulness and pain on the right side of body since 4 months.
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.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is a hypointense signal on the T1 Weighted images in the right lentiform nucleus which is seen to turn hyperintense on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images. Similar area is seen in the right frontal deep white matter and the periatrial deep white matter.
A lacunar infarct is seen in the right frontal region (scans 103.13, 102.13).
There is moderate dilatation of both the lateral and third ventricles. The fourth ventricle is normal. There is slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci (more marked in temporal regions), Sylvian fissures and the basal cisternal spaces.
There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
- 2 - Scan-00009
1. Altered signal in the right lentiform nucleus, in the frontal deep white matter and the periatrial deep white matter are ischemic in etiology.
2. Cerebral atrophy (more marked in both temporal regions).
