Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Deshlmn / F / 24 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzne.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O pituitary microadenoma.
For follow up.
M.R.I of the sella was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
After administration of contrast the following parameters were used :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal and coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial images through the brain.
There is still seen an approximately 4.8 x 3.0 x 2.8 mms sized well-defined, non-enhancing mass lesion in the anterior pituitary gland located slightly to the right of the midline.
The anterior pituitary gland shows a convex superior margin. The posterior pituitary gland reveals normal hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images. The pituitary stalk is in the midline. The hypothalamus is unremarkable.
After contrast administration, this lesion does not enhance and
there is no other area of abnormal enhancement in the sella or perisellar region or in the brain parenchyma.
- 2 - Scan-00005
The MRI features are suggestive of a non-enhancing mass lesion measuring approximately 4.8 x 3.0 x 2.8 mms in the anterior pituitary gland located slightly to the right of the midline and would represent a pituitary microadenoma.
As compared to the previous MRI dated June 0000, there is no significant change noted.
