Name of the Patient : Abc XyzDSlmn / M / 28 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzpadia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to the LLE since 2-3 months.
M.R.I of the lumbo-sacral spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is loss of normal lumbar lordosis and loss of water content of the L5-S1 intervertebral disc. The L5-S1 intervertebral disc appears reduced in height.
The L5 vertebra is as marked on the film.
There is a posterior and left paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the L5-S1 level with indentation on the anterior aspect of the thecal sac and the left S1 nerve root.
A posterior disc bulge is seen at the L4-L5 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S1 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
18.0 mm at L1-L2
18.0 mm at L2-L3
15.0 mm at L3-L4
15.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. The L5 vertebra is as marked on the film.
2. A posterior and left paracentral disc herniation with peridiscal osteophytes at the L5-S1 level with indentation upon the thecal sac and left S1 nerve root.
