Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz. Balmn / F / 13 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O limp on the right side with deformity of the RLE since 3 years.
M.R.I of the cervical spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
The cervical vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The spinal cord over the C6 to D1 levels appears a little smaller. There also appear to be hyperintense areas on the Fast Scan (T2 *) images within the cord in the region of the anterior horn cells over the C3-C4 to C6-C7 levels.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The dorsal spine was screened with 4 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images and the lumbo-sacral spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images. The dorsal spinal cord appears to be slightly smaller than normal.
The MRI features are suggestive of altered cord signal over the C3-C4 to C6-C7 levels with slight thinning of the lower cervical and dorsal spinal cord as described.
Motor neuron disease should be excluded.
