Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to the LLE and paresthesias.
M.R.I of the lumbo-sacral spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There are small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S1 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
15.0 mm at L1-L2
14.0 mm at L2-L3
14.0 mm at L3-L4
10.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
The S. I. joints were screened with the help of 5 mm thick STIR coronal images which do not reveal any diagnostic feature of note.
Small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
