Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Kalmn / M / 3 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzshi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O MR with seizures.
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.
There is an ill-defined, hyperintense signal on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the cortex and subcortical white matter in the parieto-occipital regions bilaterally. This lesion appears hyperintense to normal gray matter on the T1 Weighted
images. Slight volume loss is also noted in these regions.
There is slight thinning of the posterior body and splenium of the corpus callosum probably the result of previous ischemic insult.
There is mild fullness of both the lateral ventricles. The 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.
1. Altered signal in the cortex and subcortical white matter in the parieto-occipital regions bilaterally most likely represents ischemic changes.
2. Thinning of the posterior body and splenium of the corpus callosum.
