Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Kaplmn / M / 28 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzesai.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorso-lumbar Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache radiating to the RLE since 3 weeks.
M.R.I of the dorso-lumbar 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 visualized lower dorsal and lumbar vertebral bodies show hypointense marrow signal on the T1 Weighted images which is isointense to normal marrow on the T2 Weighted images suggesting preponderance of hematopoeitic marrow.
The visualized dorso-lumbar intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorso-lumbar spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the D12 level.
The lumbar spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images and axial images which shows small posterior disc bulges at the L3-L4 and L4-L5 levels. The lower lumbar facet joints appear slightly hypertrophied.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
