Name of the Patient : Abc XyzGalmn / M / 34 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
M.R.I of the lumbo-sacral spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
The L1-L2, L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral discs show loss of water content.
There is slight forward translation of the L5 over the S1 vertebra with spondylolysis at the L5 bilaterally.
A small posterior disc herniation is seen at the L5-S1 level.
A small posterior disc bulge is noted at the L4-L5 level.
Effusion is noted within the facet joints at the L4-L5 level bilaterally.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S1 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
15.0 mm at L1-L2
16.0 mm at L2-L3
17.0 mm at L3-L4
13.0 mm at L4-L5
17.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Slight forward translation of the L5 over the S1 vertebra with spondylolysis at L5 bilaterally.
2. A small posterior disc herniation at the L5-S1 level.
3. A small posterior disc bulge at the L4-L5 level.
