Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Sollmn / F / 60 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O cysticercosis.
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 T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is a very small focal area of hypointensity adjacent to the left frontal horn on the FLAIR images (se/im:106/13).
There is slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
The hippocampal complex on either side is unremarkable.
There is mild fullness of both the lateral and the third ventricles. The fourth ventricle is normal. The basal cisternal spaces are slightly prominent.
There is no shift of the midline structures.
There is ectasia of the vertebro-basilar system.
Incidental note is made of inflammatory changes in the mastoid air cells bilaterally.

In a known C/O cysticercosis, the MRI features are suggestive of
a very small focal area of altered signal adjacent to the left frontal horn may represent a calcified granuloma/in the nodular stage.
As compared with the previous MRI dated 00.00.00, the left frontal lesion appears to be calcified in the nodular stage.
