Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz lmn / M / 22 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
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.
3 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is an ill-defined, hyperintense signal better appreciated on the FLAIR coronal images in the left high parietal, parafalcine cortex (scans 105.5 - 7). This lesion appears nearly isointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images.
The hippocampal complex is unremarkable on either side.
Both the lateral and third ventricles are normal. Mild fullness of the fourth ventricle is noted. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Altered signal in the left high parietal, parafalcine cortex as described is not specific for a single etiology. These changes may represent a focal ischemic lesion or may represent gliotic changes, ? the sequelae of previous ischemic lesion.
