Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz V. lmn / M / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O severe backache since 6 months.
M.R.I of the dorsal 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.
There are Schmorls nodes in the inferior aspect of the D9 vertebral body and the superior aspect of the D12 vertebra with adjacent Type I degenerative change.
Smaller Schmorls node is also noted at the D10-D11 level.
The dorsal intervertebral discs show slight loss of water content.
The D9-D10 and D10-D11 facet joints show mild degenerative changes.
The rest of the visualized dorsal vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the D12 level.
- 2 - Scan-00003
The lumbo-sacral spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images which show sacralization of the L5 vertebral body.
The sacro-iliac joints were screened with 5 mm T1 Weighted coronal images and which do not reveal any diagnostic feature of note.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Schmorls nodes in the inferior aspect of the D9 vertebral body and the superior aspect of the D12 vertebra with adjacent Type I degenerative change.
2. Mild facetal arthropathy at the D9-D10 and D10-D11 levels.
