Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzwari Kalmn / F / 51 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznna.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to the LUE and LLE since 1 year.
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.
Screening of the spine with 4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The lumbar intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
Small posterior disc bulges are noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels with ventral indentation of the thecal sac at the L4-L5 level.
Conjoint nerve root sleeve is seen on the right side at the L5-S1 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies 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 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
17.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
15.0 mm at L5-S1.
Screening of the cervico-dorsal spine reveals no feature of note.
The MRI features are suggestive of small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
