Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Malmn / F / 34 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O intracranial granulomas. On Rx since 0000.
C/O occasional pain in the LUE and LLE.
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 T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is a small 1.0 cm diameter lesion in the right temporo-parietal region. This lesion is hypointense to the gray matter on the T1 Weighted images and turns more hypointense on the T2 Weighted images. Subtle hyperintense areas at the periphery of this lesion on the proton and T2 Weighted images which are hypointense on the T1 Weighted images would represent areas of gliosis. There is crowding of the sulci in this region.
There is slight fullness of the body of the right lateral ventricle.
A small, subcentimeter satellite lesion is seen posterior to the above mentioned lesion with similar signal intensity characteristics.
The left 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.
- 2 - Scan-00002
The MRI features are suggestive of calcified granulomas in the
right temporo-parietal region as described.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.0000, the lesions now appear to be calcified.
