Name of the Patient : Abc XyzS. Pallmn / M / 20 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzdy.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Lumbo-sacral Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache with pain radiating to the LLE.
Alleged H/O fall.
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 a posterior disc bulge indenting the thecal sac at the L5-S1 level. Mild far lateral (extraforaminal) disc bulges are noted at this level.
Note is made of a spina bifida at the S1 level.
A small posterior disc bulge is seen at the L4-L5 level.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs reveal normal signal intensity. The facet joints and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The conus medullaris terminates at the L1-L2 level and the thecal sac terminates at the S2 level.
- 2 - Scan-00009
The antero-posterior dimensions of the lumbar canal at the level of the intervertebral discs are as follows :
19.0 mm at L1-L2
18.0 mm at L2-L3
17.0 mm at L3-L4
16.0 mm at L4-L5
14.0 mm at L5-S1.
The MRI features are suggestive of a posterior disc bulge at the L5-S1 level.
