Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz DMlmn / F / 27 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O irregular menses.
Detected as a pituitary microadenoma 1 year back. On treatment.
M.R.I of the sella and perisellar region was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
After administration of contrast the following parameters were used :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted coronal and axial images with magnetization transfer.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The brain was scanned with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial images with magnetization transfer.
A small punctate hypointense signal on the T1 Weighted images is seen in the pituitary gland (scan 105.4) and is seen to turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images (106.4). This may represents a microadenoma.
The pituitary gland is normal in its size, contour and location. 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 cistern are unremarkable.
T2 Weighted axial images of the brain do not reveal any significant feature of note.
After administration of contrast, there is no focal area of abnormal enhancement in the pituitary gland, the brain parenchyma or along the meninges.
Small microadenoma in the pituitary gland.
No previous investigations were available for review/comparison.
