Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz lmn / M / 55 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzndu.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O altered consciousness.
H/O headaches and vomiting on 00.00.00.
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 and Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
Few foci of hyperintense signal on the proton, T2 Weighted and Flair images are seen within the fronto-parietal white matter bilaterally. These are iso to hypointense to white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are most likely ischemic in etiology.
Irregularly defined areas with similar signal characteristics are seen within the periventricular white matter bilaterally and these are most likely ischemic in etiology.
There is no evidence of haemorrhage within the brain parenchyma on this study.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Inflammatory changes are seen within the sphenoid sinus.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of altered signal intensity within the fronto-parietal white matter bilaterally and within the periventricular white matter bilaterally and these are most likely ischemic in etiology.
