Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlmn / M / 30 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right anterior aspect of the
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain and swelling over the right anterior aspect of the chest since 3-4 months with inability to move the RUE and lift weights.
H/O injury in the same region prior to this.
M.R.I. of the right anterior aspect of the chest was performed using the following parameters:
7 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.8 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation)
sagittal images.6 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation)
coronal images.OBSERVATION :
There is an ill-defined, hyperintense signal on the T2 Weighted images in the right pectoralis major muscle, laterally in the region of the axillary fold. This lesion appears nearly isointense to normal muscle on the T1 Weighted images. There is no significant increase in the size of the pectoralis muscle in that region.
The visualized axilla, right sternoclavicular joint and the right shoulder joint are unremarkable. The visualized mediastinum is also unremarkable.
Altered signal in the right pectoralis major muscle, laterally in the region of the axillary fold is not specific for a single etiology. This may be the sequelae of previous injury to the muscle (?? partial tear) or inflammatory changes.
The possibility of a neoplastic etiology seems less likely.
