Name of the Patient : Abc XyzVisslmn / M / 73 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmal G. Kasbekar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O sudden loss of hearing on the left side with tinnitus and vertigo.
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.
MR cisternogram was obtained in the coronal plane.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images.
There are ill-defined hyperintense areas in the posterior parietal periventricular white matter bilaterally, on the proton, T2 Weighted and Flair images. These are iso to hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
The seventh and eighth cranial nerve complex is unremarkable.
There is fullness of both the lateral and third ventricles with prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci. The fourth ventricle is normal.
The basal cisternal spaces are prominent. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
1. Areas of altered signal in the posterior parietal periventricular white matter bilaterally are suggestive of areas of ischemia/infarction.
2. Cerebral atrophy.
