Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Sallmn / F / 32 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz Sane.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches since 15 days.
Past H/O basilar aneurysm (00.00.00).
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 is thinning of the corpus callosum, more so of the posterior body and the splenium of the corpus callosum.
There is mild dilatation of both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles. There is a hypointense signal, more pronounced on the T2 Weighted images in the posterior third ventricle, aqueduct and proximal fourth ventricle which may represent turbulent CSF flow.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma per se.
The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
1. Thinning of the corpus callosum, more so of the posterior body and the splenium of the corpus callosum is of ? etiology (? due to mild ventricular dilatation).
2. Mild dilatation of both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles with altered flow signal as described may suggest
It is difficult to identify an aneurysm of the basilar artery on this study. If clinically indicated, an MR Angiogram would be worthwhile.
