Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Jlmn / F / 58 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : Intracranial and Neck M.R.A.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O sudden onset of dysathria with ? facial asymmetry 2 weeks back.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
Intracranial and neck MRA were performed with 3D TOF and 2D TOF sequences, respectively.
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.
Incidental note is made of inflammatory changes within the mastoid air cells and a right maxillary polyp.
INTRACRANIAL MRA :
The right posterior cerebral artery is seen as a continuation of the right posterior communicating artery. The right vertebral artery is hypoplastic.
The petrous, cavernous and supraclinoid segments of the internal carotid arteries bilaterally show normal signal and calibre. The visualized anterior cerebral, middle cerebral, basilar, left vertebral and left posterior cerebral arteries also show normal signal, calibre and wall margins. No obvious aneurysm or vascular malformation is identified.
- 2 - Scan-00007
NECK MRA :
The common carotid arteries and their extracranial branches appear normal bilaterally. There are no vessel wall irregularities or stenosis of the vessels noted.
No significant abnormality is detected on the intracranial and neck MRA on this study.
