Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to BLE with paresthesias since 8 years.
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.
The L5 vertebral body is as marked on the film. Please correlate with plain radiographs.
Mild posterior disc bulges are noted at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the 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 :
19.0 mm at L1-L2
18.0 mm at L2-L3
17.0 mm at L3-L4
16.0 mm at L4-L5
15.0 mm at L5-S1.
The MRI features are suggestive of mild posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
