Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the dorso-lumbar Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O wasting and pain in the LLE with tingling since 3 years.
M.R.I of the dorso-lumbar spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
10 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
The visualized dorso-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 visualized dorsal spinal cord shows normal signal intensity. However it is smaller in diameter as compared to the normal.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
The MRI features are suggestive of atrophy of the dorsal cord without any change in signal intensity.
