Name of the Patient : Abc XyzVaslmn / F / 58 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz Shah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O giddiness and loss of consciousness.
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 and Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
There are ill-defined, hyperintense areas on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the subcortical white matter in the fronto-parietal regions bilaterally and in the posterior parietal periventricular white matter bilaterally. These lesions appear iso to hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and represents ischemic changes.
There is no evidence of haemorrhage on this study.
Focal hypointense signal, more pronounced on the Fast Scan (T2 *) images in the globus pallidus bilaterally most likely represents globus pallidus calcification.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is slight prominence of the cerebellar folia bilaterally. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Altered signal in the subcortical white matter in the fronto-parietal regions bilaterally and in the posterior parietal periventricular white matter bilaterally most likely represent ischemic changes.
