Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Ralmn / M / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
M.R.I of the lumbo-sacral spine was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
There are small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
Schmorls nodes are seen in the dorso-lumbar region.
The L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 facet joints show mild degenerative changes.
The pedicles of the lumbar vertebrae appear congenitally short in their antero-posterior dimensions.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The rest of the facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.
- 2 - Scan-00008
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
11.0 mm at L1-L2
11.0 mm at L2-L3
11.0 mm at L3-L4
11.0 mm at L4-L5
10.0 mm at L5-S1.
1. Small posterior disc bulges at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
2. Mild facetal arthropathy at the L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels.
3. Congenitally short pedicles of the lumbar vertebrae in their antero-posterior dimensions.
