Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzman.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O altered behaviour with slurred speech on 00.00.00 from which patient recovered within 2 days.
H/O fever prior to this.
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 no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma.
There is prominence of the cerebral cortical sulcal spaces, the cerebellar folia and the basal cisternal spaces bilaterally. There is mild fullness of the third and both the lateral ventricles.
The fourth ventricle is normal. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Incidental note is made of ethmoidal, sphenoidal and frontal sinusitis.
Susceptibility artifacts as a result of fixed metallic dentures is seen on all the images close to the base of the skull but is most marked on the T1 Weighted axial images.
Age related cerebral and cerebellar atrophy.
