Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzm lmn / M / 55 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzbar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O left hemiparesis since 2 months.
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 is evidence of a well-defined area following CSF signal characteristics on all the pulse sequences in the right lentiform nucleus/posterior limb of the right internal capsule. This most likely represents a lacunar infarct. Similar lesion is noted in the left insular cortex.
There is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features are suggestive of a lacunar infarct in the
right lentiform nucleus/posterior limb of the right internal capsule and in the left insular cortex.
