Name of the Patient : Abc XyzKarim Shlmn / M / 30 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to the LLE and numbness since 4-5 months.
M.R.I of the lumbo-sacral spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There is loss of normal lumbar lordosis.
Minimal posterior disc bulge is noted at the L1-L2 and L4-L5 levels.
Slight facetal hypertrophy is seen at the L5-S1, L4-L5, L3-L4 and L2-L3 levels.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S1 level.
- 2 - Scan-00009
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
15.0 mm at L1-L2
16.0 mm at L2-L3
16.0 mm at L3-L4
12.0 mm at L4-L5
12.0 mm at L5-S1.
A hypointense focus on all the pulse sequences in the subchondral region in the left iliac bone adjacent to the left sacro-iliac joint may either represent subchondral sclerosis or a bone island.
Screening T1 Weighted sagittal images of the cervico-dorsal region reveal suspicious degenerative changes in the cervical region. The dorsal spine is unremarkable.
Slight facetal hypertrophy at the L5-S1, L4-L5, L3-L4 and L2-L3 levels.
No other significant abnormality is detected on this study.
