Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Felmn / F / 29 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzarma.
Examination : Intracranial M.R.A. and M.R.V.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O right sided headaches.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images and the cavernous sinuses were examined with 3 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
Intracranial MRA was obtained using a 3D TOF technique and Intracranial MRV was obtained using a 2D TOF technique.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity within the brain parenchyma.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures.
The cavernous sinuses and superior orbital fissures on either side are unremarkable.
Incidental note is made of left maxillary sinusitis.
INTRACRANIAL MRA :
The A1 segment of the right anterior communicating artery is hypoplastic.
The petrous, cavernous and supraclinoid segments of the internal carotid arteries bilaterally show normal signal and calibre. The visualized left anterior cerebral, middle cerebral, basilar, vertebral and posterior cerebral arteries also show normal signal, calibre and wall margins. No obvious aneurysm or vascular malformation is identified.
INTRACRANIAL MRV :
On the MRV the visualized dural and deep venous sinuses show normal flow characteristics. No obvious venous thrombosis is evident on this scan.
No significant abnormality is detected on the intracranial MRA and MRV on this study.
