Name of the Patient : Abc XyzJlmn / M / 48 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz Sampat.
Examination : Intracranial and Neck M.R.A.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches and slight dizziness.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
Intracranial and neck MRA were performed with 3D TOF and 2D TOF sequences, respectively.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity within the brain parenchyma.
There is slight prominence of the cerebral cortial sulci 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.
INTRACRANIAL MRA :
The petrous, cavernous and supraclinoid segments of the internal carotid arteries bilaterally show normal signal and calibre. The visualized anterior cerebral, middle cerebral, basilar, vertebral and posterior cerebral arteries also show normal signal, calibre and wall margins. No obvious aneurysm or vascular malformation is identified.
NECK MRA :
There is very minimal filling defect along the posterior wall of the left internal carotid artery just distal to its bifurcation and may represent an atherosclerotic plaque.
The common carotid arteries and their extracranial branches appear normal bilaterally.
An atherosclerotic plaque along the posterior wall of the left internal carotid artery just distal to its bifurcation.
No significant abnormality is detected on the intracranial MRA on this study.
