Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzngi lmn / F / 22 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzakavi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O pituitary microadenoma with Cushings disease.
Transphenoidal excision of the tumor was done on 00.00.00.
For follow up.
M.R.I of the sella and perisellar region was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
The anterior pituitary gland shows a slightly convex superior margin and measures approximately 7.0 mms in height. No obvious focal lesion of altered signal is noted in the anterior pituitary gland on this study.
The posterior pituitary gland reveals normal hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images. The pituitary stalk is in the midline. The hypothalamus is unremarkable.
The cavernous sinuses and the suprasellar cistern are also unremarkable.
No significant abnormality is detected on the T2 Weighted axial images of the brain.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change noted in the pituitary gland. The patient is status post-operative for a pituitary microadenoma.
If clinical indicated a contrast enhanced scan would be worthwhile.
