Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza S. lmn / F / 44 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc XyzJain.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to BLE with paresthesias.
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 is partial sacralization of the L5 vertebra on the right.
There is loss of water content of the L4-L5 intervertebral disc.
There is a small postero-central protruded disc at the L4-L5 level with slight facetal and ligamentum flavum prominence at this level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and the remaining 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 S1 level.
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
16.0 mm at L1-L2
17.0 mm at L2-L3
15.0 mm at L3-L4
12.0 mm at L4-L5
11.0 mm at L5-S1.
Screening, T1 Weighted sagittal images of the cervico-dorsal spine reveals a small, postero-central protruded disc at the C5-C6 level.
Degenerated L4-L5 disc with a small postero-central protruded disc with a slight facetal and ligamentum flavum prominence at the L4-L5 level.
Partial sacralization of the L5 vertebra on the right side.
As compared to the previous MRI dated 00.00.0000, there is no significant change noted.
