Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Zlmn / M / 44 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzzzare.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O numbness in the thumb and index fingers of the right hand since 2 days.
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 coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There are ill-defined, hyperintense areas in the posterior parietal, periventricular deep white matter which may be ischemic in etiology. Similar smaller foci are noted in the frontal deep white matter bilaterally.
There is mild dilatation of both the lateral ventricles. The 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.
Incidental note is made of an empty sella.
The cervical spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images which shows small posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes over the C3-C4 to C6-C7 levels.
1. Hyperintense areas in the periventricular deep white matter and in the frontal deep white matter bilaterally may be ischemic in etiology.
2. Small posterior disc bulges with peridiscal osteophytes over the C3-C4 to C6-C7 levels.
