Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza V. Tatlmn / F / 60 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O fever with headaches.
H/O inability to swallow 2 days ago.
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.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
Areas of hyperintensity on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images are seen within the periatrial and fronto-parietal white matter bilaterally. These are iso to hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are most likely ischemic in etiology.
There is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci bilaterally.
Both the 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.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of altered signal
within the periatrial and fronto-parietal white matter bilaterally are most likely ischemic in etiology.
