Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Mohd. Al-Silmn / M / 52 yrs.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
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.
A lacunar infarct (iso to hyperintense to CSF) is noted in the head of the right caudate nucleus.
Small bright foci are seen on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images within the left periatrial white matter. These are iso to hypointense to white matter on the T1 Weighted images and are most likely ischemic in etiology.
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 and cerebellar folia bilaterally. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Inflammatory changes are noted in the maxillary sinuses bilaterally.
1. A lacunar infarct in the head of the right caudate nucleus.
2. Foci of altered signal in the left periatrial white matter are most likely ischemic in etiology.
