Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzi Dlmn / M / 41 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzapadia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorso-lumbar Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to the LLE since 1 year which has increased since 3 months.
M.R.I of the dorso-lumbar spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is a left paracentral disc protrusion indenting the ventral aspect of the thecal sac at the D11-D12 level.
The visualized dorso-lumbar intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The visualized dorso-lumbar vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level.
The lumbo-sacral spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images. A small posterior disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes is seen at the L5-S1 level. Small postero-central and left postero-lateral disc herniations are seen at the L4-L5 level.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A left paracentral disc protrusion at the D11-D12 level.
2. A small posterior disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the L5-S1 level.
3. Small postero-central and left postero-lateral disc herniations at the L4-L5 level.
