Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzha Malmn / F / 37 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Left Thigh.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain over the left hip region to the left thigh with difficulty in walking since 4 days.
M.R.I of the left thigh was performed using the following parameters :
6 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images.
7 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation axial images.
8 mm thick Fast Scan (T2 *) sagittal images.
The intermascular fat plane in the anterior compartment (particularly in the region of vastus lateralis, the iliopsoas and pectineus muscles) from the level of the hip joint till the junction of the mid and lower thigh shows a hypointense signal on the T1 Weighted images. This is seen to turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images. Slight streaking of the fat planes posterior to the upper shaft of the left femur is also noted.
There is no obvious mass lesion or collection seen on this study.
Enlarged inguinal lymphnodes are seen bilaterally, more marked on the left side.
Streaking of the fat planes in the anterior compartment from the level of the hip joint till the junction of the mid and lower thigh is probably inflammatory in etiology.
