Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzaslmn / F / 53 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhah / Dr. Abc Xyzsrani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache and chest pain (on the left side) since 15 days.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
8 & 6 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images, respectively.
The cervical and lumbar spines were screened with 4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The visualized vertebrae of the spinal axis show spotty fatty marrow changes suggesting osteoporosis. The dorsal intervertebral discs show slight loss of water content.
Slight ligamentum flavum prominence is noted at the D10-D11 level on the left (scans 105.4 & 104.3).
The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity. There is no cord compression.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
Altered signal of the visualized vertebrae of the spinal axis suggests osteoporosis.
No other significant abnormality is detected on this study.
