Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzshna Shanlmn / M / 70 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O 4 episodes of numbness on the right side of the body (lasting for 15 minutes) within last 15 days.
Known hypertensive/diabetic. On Rx.
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 and Gradient coronal images.
Small bright foci are noted in the fronto-parieto-temporal region bilaterally on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images. These are isointense to white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are probably ischemic in etiology.
There is mild fullness of both the lateral ventricles. The third and the fourth ventricles are normal. Slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia is noted. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Inflammatory changes are noted in the sphenoid sinus.
1. Small bright foci of altered signal in the fronto-parieto-temporal region bilaterally are probably ischemic in etiology.
2. Cerebral and cerebellar atrophy.
