Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzati Mlmn / F / 55 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzisheri.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Dorsal Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with paresthesias in BLE since 00.00.00.
H/O weakness of BLE since 00.00.00.
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.
The lumbar spine was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
A postero-central disc herniation is seen at the L5-S1 level. A disc portion is seen to lie within the anterior epidural space at the S1 vertebral level.
The visualized dorsal vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The visualized dorsal spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity. There is no cord compression.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level.
The MRI features are suggestive of a postero-central disc herniation at the L5-S1 level with a disc portion lying within the anterior epidural space at the S1 vertebral level.
There is no significant abnormality detected within the dorsal spine on this study.
