Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Gillmn / M / 50 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhtekar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O visual defect on the left side 6 months back.
C/O visual defect on the right side since 4-5 days.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma.
The left optic nerve shows increased signal intensity on the STIR images (scans 106.8 to 106.10) as compared to the right side.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Increased signal intensity within the left optic nerve may suggest optic neuritis/demyelination/ischemia.
