Name of the Patient : Abc XyzJlmn / M / 56 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : Intracranial and Neck M.R.A.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O 3-4 episodes of giddiness with gait ataxia on 00.00.00 & 00.00.00.
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 mild fullness of both the lateral ventricles. The third and the fourth ventricles are normal. There is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
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 :
The common carotid arteries and their extracranial branches appear normal bilaterally. There are no vessel wall irregularities or stenosis of the vessels noted.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Mild cerebral and cerebellar atrophy.
2. No significant abnormality is detected on the intracranial and neck MRA on this study.
