Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlmn / F / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzakantan.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O hyperprolactinemia and 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 and T2 Weighted sagittal 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 sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial images with magnetization transfer through the brain.
There is evidence of a well-defined lesion measuring approximately 10.0 x 8.0 x 9.0 mms. located within the anterior pituitary gland on the left side. It is hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images and does not enhance following contrast administration. The pituitary stalk is slightly deviated to the right side.
The rest of the pituitary gland and the stalk show normal enhancement pattern.
The posterior pituitary gland reveals normal hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images. The hypothalamus is unremarkable. The perisellar region is also unremarkable.
There is no focal area of signal alteration within the brain parenchyma on the T2 Weighted axial images. No focal area of abnormal enhancement within the brain parenchyma on this scan.
The MRI features are suggestive of a well-defined lesion measuring approximately 10.0 x 8.0 x 9.0 mms. located within the anterior pituitary gland on the left side and this most likely represents a pituitary adenoma.
