Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzn lmn / M / 20 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O neurocysticercosis since 0000. On Rx.
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.
4 mm thick Gradient coronal images.
There is a very small subtle hyperintense signal on the FLAIR images in the right posterior occipital region (se/im:105/4). A small hypointense area is seen in the centre on all the pulse sequences which would represent calcification.
No new lesion is identified.
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.
Incidental note is made of left frontal sinusitis.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00, there is significant reduction in the size of the lesion which is probably calcified with very mild perilesional gliosis/edema.
