Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzdra Klmn / M / 25 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzidhungat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Patient has headaches at present.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted, T2 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images through the region of interest.
There is evidence of a fairly well-defined lesion measuring approximately 6-7 mms in diameter, located in the left frontal region (near the left precentral gyrus).
This lesion is hypointense on the proton, T2 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) images and has a hyperintense rim on the T1 Weighted images. There is no perilesional edema.
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.
The MRI features are suggestive of a lesion within the left frontal region having a diameter of approximately 6-7 mms and following the signal characteristics of a cysticercus in the granular-nodular/calcified stage.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.0000, there is decrease in the size of the lesion, which is now calcified.
