Name of the Patient : Abc XyzValmn / F / 70 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrman.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O giddiness since 5-6 days.
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.
MR cisternogram was performed in the coronal plane.
There are ill-defined, hyperintense areas on the proton, T2 Weighted and Flair images in the frontal deep and subcortical white matter bilaterally and in the posterior parietal periventricular white matter bilaterally. These are hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images.
There are small bright foci on the proton, T2 Weighted and Flair images in bilateral corona radiata and centrum semiovale which are isointense to white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are ischemic in etiology.
The seventh and eighth cranial nerve complex on either side is unremarkable.
There is mild dilatation of the ventricular system. There is mild prominence of the cerebellar folia bilaterally.
The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Incidental note is made of a left maxillary polyp/mucus retention cyst.
1. Altered signal in the frontal deep and subcortical white matter and in the posterior parietal periventricular white matter bilaterally is ischemic in etiology.
2. Small bright foci on the proton, T2 Weighted and Flair images in bilateral corona radiata and centrum semiovale are ischemic in etiology.
3. Mild cerebellar atrophy.
