Name of the Patient : Abc Xyztalmn / F / 23 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah Matkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches with weight gain since 1 year.
S. Prolactin level is 39 ng/ml.
M.R.I of the sella and perisellar region was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
After contrast administration, 3 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal and coronal images and delayed, 3 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images were also obtained.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial images with magnetization transfer after contrast administration.
The pituitary gland is normal in its size, contour and location and reveals normal signal intensity. The pituitary gland measures approximately 5.0 mms in height. The posterior pituitary gland reveals normal hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images. The pituitary stalk is in the midline. The hypothalamus is unremarkable. The cavernous sinus and the suprasellar cistern are unremarkable.
After administration of contrast, there is no focal area of abnormal enhancement in the pituitary gland or the perisellar region.
The study of the brain reveals focal dilatation of the left temporal horn when compared to the right, which may be a normal variant. No other significant abnormality is detected in the brain parenchyma before and after contrast administration.
No significant abnormality is detected within the pituitary gland on this study.
