Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzath lmn / M / 55 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O acute onset of weakness of BLE since 2 months.
M.R.I of the dorsal spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is loss of water content of the mid-dorsal intervertebral discs.
Small postero-central protruded disc is noted at the D9-D10 level.
Hypertrophic facetal arthropathy is noted at the D9-D10 level on the left and D10-D11 level on the right, with resultant slight compromise of the spinal canal at these levels. Minimal facetal hypertrophy is noted at the D8-D9 level on the right.
The costo-vertebral joints at the D6-D7, D8-D9, D9-D10 and D10-D11 levels on the left also show degenerative changes. Anterior peridiscal osteophytes are also noted in the lumbar region. Lateral peridiscal osteophytes are seen in the mid-dorsal region on the left side.
The visualized dorsal vertebral bodies reveal normal signal intensity. The visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
- 2 - Scan-00003A
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level.
1. Hypertrophic facetal arthropathy at the D9-D10 level on the left and D10-D11 level on the right, with resultant slight compromise of the spinal canal at these levels.
2. Degenerative changes in the costo-vertebral joints at the D6-D7, D8-D9, D9-D10 and D10-D11 levels on the left.
