Name of the Patient : Abc XyzSlmn / M / 76 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzatt / Dr. Abc Xyzdakia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O single episode of seizures on 00.00.00 followed by abnormal behaviour for 3-4 hours. Operated for hernia 6 days ago.
No complaints at present.
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.
3 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images.
There are small areas of hyperintensity on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images within the frontal and periatrial white matter bilaterally. These are iso to hypointense to white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are most likely ischemic in etiology.
There is fullness of both the lateral ventricles (right more than left). The right frontal horn appears larger than left. There is prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci (especially in the left parietal region) and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
The 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.
The normal lens is not visualized within both eyes (? cataract surgery).

1. Areas of altered signal within the frontal and periatrial white matter bilaterally are most likely ischemic in etiology.
2. Cerebral and cerebellar atrophy.
