Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzen lmn / F / 75 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Alleged H/O fall in sleep on 00.00.0000.
C/O behavioral disturbances since then.
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 and Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
FEW IMAGES SHOW PATIENT MOTION.
There are areas of hypointensity on the T1 Weighted images which turns hyperintense on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images within the anterior limb of the left internal capsule, left posterior temporal lobe and right thalamus. These most likely represent recent areas of ischemia/infarction.
Smaller areas with near similar signal characteristics are seen within the fronto-parietal white matter bilaterally and these are most likely ischemic in etiology.
There is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia. Also seen is mild fullness of both the lateral ventricles.
The third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
- 2 - Scan-00007
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of altered signal intensity within the anterior limb of the left internal capsule, left posterior temporal lobe and right thalamus and these most likely represent recent areas of ischemia/infarction.
