Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz lmn / M / 19 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Alleged H/O RTA 3 months back.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
4 mm thick FLAIR, STIR and Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is evidence of a fracture of the orbital plate of the left frontal bone with probable postero-superior displacement. The adjacent left frontal lobe shows hypointense areas on the T1 Weighted images which turn hyperintense on the proton, T2 Weighted and Flair images and which may represent gliotic changes (the result of previous contusions).
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.
The optic nerves bilaterally show normal signal intensity.
Screening images of the cervical spine do not reveal any significant feature of note.
- 2 - Scan-00007
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A fracture of the orbital plate of the left frontal bone with probable postero-superior displacement.
2. Altered signal within the left frontal lobe may represent gliotic changes (the result of previous contusions).
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00 (Scan No.00003), there is no significant change noted.
