Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlmn / M / 34 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzndu.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches and vertigo since 1 1/2 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.
3 mm thick Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
5 mm T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is evidence of a well-defined lesion having a diameter of approximately 1.2 cms. in the left high fronto-parietal region. This lesion is hypointense on all the pulse sequences and has a crenated margin. Adjacent to this lesion are areas of hyperintensity on the FLAIR images and these may represent gliotic changes.
There is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
Both the lateral, 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 a well-defined lesion having a diameter of approximately 1.2 cms. in the left high fronto-parietal region and this most likely represents an area of calcification (? old granuloma ?? calcified meningioma).
