Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzn Plmn / M / 60 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzmpat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O multiple CVA.
C/O mild headaches since 1 week.
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.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
A small hypointense area on the T1 Weighted images is seen in the left frontal region which follows CSF signal intensity characteristics on all the pulse sequences and represents a lacunar infarct.
Prominent perivascular spaces are noted in the cerebral hemispheres bilaterally.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is slight prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci in the fronto-parietal regions bilaterally. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Incidental note is made of a right maxillary polyp.
A lacunar infarct in the left frontal region.
No previous investigations were available for comparison.
