Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza lmn / M / 27 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O fall with injury to back 2 years ago.
C/O progressive gait imbalance, difficulty in walking and slight tremors in the right hand and limp in left leg since then.
M.R.I of the cervical spine was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
The dorsal spine was screened with 4 mm thick T2 Weighted sagittal images.
There is loss of normal cervical lordotic curve. The C5-C6 and C6-C7 intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
The cord appears a little thinner over the C7 to D2 vertebral levels without any change in signal intensity.
The cervical vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
- 2 - Scan-00007
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
The screening images of the dorsal spine do not reveal any significant feature of note.
Centimeter and subcentimeter lymphnodes are identified deep to the left sternomastoid muscle.
The MRI features are suggestive of slight thinning of the cord over the C7 to D2 vertebral levels.
