Name of the Patient : Abc XyzSlmn / F / 40 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhta.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O watery discharge from the right nostril.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3D SPGR images in the coronal plane.
MR cisternogram was obtained in the coronal and sagittal planes.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is evidence of air-fluid levels in the right maxillary sinus and sphenoid sinus on the right side. There appears to be a break in the cribiform plate of the ethmoid with slight pooling of CSF in that region.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in 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. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features are suggestive of air-fluid levels in the right maxillary sinus and sphenoid sinus on the right side with a break in the cribiform plate of the ethmoid with slight pooling of CSF in that region.
