Name of the Patient : Abc XyzShlmn / M / 64 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O weak grip of the right hand with gait ataxia since 5-6 months.
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 are small bright areas on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the fronto-parietal and periventricular white matter bilaterally. These are iso to hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are probably ischemic in etiology.
There is no extracerebral collection identified on this study.
There is prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci especially in the parietal lobes bilaterally.
There is slight fullness of both the lateral ventricles. The third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of altered signal in the fronto-parietal and periventricular white matter which are probably ischemic in etiology.
