Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzsh Shanlmn / M / 13 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzdar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O neurocysticercosis.
For follow up.
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.
3 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images through the region of interest.
There is still seen a small, well marginated, subcentimeter, hyperintense lesion with a hypointense rim on the T2 Weighted images in the subcortical white matter in the left high fronto-parietal region, best appreciated on the thin section coronal images (se/im: 106/7). This lesion is not well identified on the T1 Weighted images.
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.
Inflammatory changes are noted in the left maxillary sinus.
A subcentimeter lesion in the subcortical white matter in the left high fronto-parietal region follows the signal characteristics of a cysticercus in the granular-nodular stage.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.00 (scan no:00009), there is a slight decrease in the size of the lesion.
