Name of the Patient : Abc XyzPalmn / F / 25 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhalani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O hyperprolactinemia with irregular menses.
M.R.I of the sella and perisellar region was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
The pituitary gland is normal in its size, contour and location and reveals normal signal intensity. The posterior pituitary gland reveals normal hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images. The pituitary stalk is in the midline. The hypothalamus is unremarkable.
The cavernous sinuses and the suprasellar cisterns are unremarkable.
T2 Weighted axial images of the brain do not reveal any significant feature of note.
Incidentally noted is a hypertrophied left inferior nasal turbinate. Septae are seen within the sphenoid sinus.
No significant abnormality is detected on this study.
If a pituitary microadenoma is strongly suspected, a contrast enhanced scan may be worthwhile.
