Name of the Patient : Abc Xyziya Glmn / M / 3 1/2 mnths.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzal.
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.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted, T2 Weighted and FLAIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The white matter in the frontal, temporal and certain areas of parietal lobes bilaterally appear hypointense on the T1 Weighted images. These are seen to turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images. The genu and anterior body of the corpus callosum also appear to be involved.
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 altered signal in the frontal, temporal and certain areas of parietal lobes bilaterally and the corpus callosum as described. Such changes may represent areas of demyelination/metabolic disorders (should be excluded).
A follow-up scan may be worthwhile.
