Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz. Contralmn / F / 26 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzdhwa.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Left Wrist & Forearm.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain and swelling over the left wrist since 2-3 years.
M.R.I of the left wrist and forearm was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) sagittal images.
There is a small, intermediate signal intensity lesion on the T1 Weighted images which is located between the extensor digitorum and indicis and the extensor pollicis longus tendons and the radiocarpal joint. This is seen to turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images and represents fluid. The fluid is not seen to tract along the extensor tendons. The visualized tendons show normal signal intensity.
The carpal bones of the left wrist show normal alignment and signal intensity. There is no obvious bone erosion or destruction seen. The intercarpal and metacarpophalangeal joints are unremarkable.
The MRI features suggest a small fluid collection between the extensor digitorum and indicis and the extensor pollicis longus tendons and the radiocarpal joint as described, ? inflammatory.
