MRI - SCAN OF HEAD : MRI - SPINE 1 REGION OR 2 CONTIGUOUS REGIONS - 7/04/2018
Clinical History: Intermittent buzzing left upper limb and lower limb
(independently). Brisk knee jerk. Otherwise normal examination. For exclusion
CRANIAL MRI (SKG694003)
There is no cerebral mass lesion identified. No cerebral cortical signal
abnormality identified. There are several foci of high signal intensity again
seen within the cerebral white matter. There has been no increase in number
when compared with the previous MRI dated 11/11/2017. There are no specific
features. There is no lesion within the corpus callosum. Cerebral deep grey
nuclei are unremarkable. No focus of cerebral diffusion restriction is seen.
No surface collection is seen over the cerebral convexity.
No lesion seen within the brainstem or cerebellum.
Intracranial arterial and cerebral venous sinus flow voids are unremarkable.
MRI CERVICAL SPINE
No abnormality of the cervical cord is identified.
There is degenerative change at the anterior atlanto-axial articulation. There
is a small posterior osteophytic disc complex at the C5/6 level. There is some
right uncovertebral osteophyte formation at this level. Note the examination
had not been tailored for assessment of intervertebral foramina, it is difficult
to ascertain whether there is right C6 nerve root impingement. At C6/7 there is
a posterior osteophytic disc complex with some posterior annular fissuring. At
C7/T1 there is also some posterior annular fissuring identified.
No paraspinal lesion is evident.
MRI THORACIC SPINE
MRI thoracic spine has been performed (I note it was not requested).
At T4/5 there is a right paracentral disc protrusion or extrusion. This abuts
the anterior aspect of the thoracic cord. There is no cord compression.
However on the sagittal STIR and sagittal and axial T2 weighted imaging, there
is the impression of some high signal intensity within the cord at this level,
suggestive of some oedema or myelomalacia.
At T7/8 there is a very small posterior protrusion which is not resulting in
Apart from at the T4/5 level, the thoracic cord is unremarkable.
No paraspinal lesion evident.
Comment: Several foci of high signal intensity within the cerebral white
matter, without specific features. There has been no alteration of these
appearances when compared to 11/11/2017.
No abnormality of the cervical cord.
Some degenerative change of the thoracic spine, as described. At T4/5 there is
a small posterior disc protrusion or extrusion which abuts the thoracic cord but
does not result in cord compression. There is apparent high signal intensity
within the cord at this level on the T2 weighted and STIR sequences, suggestive
of some oedema or myelomalacia. Clinical correlation is recommended. Note that
there is apparent high signal intensity change within the spinal cord below this
level extending from approximately the T8 level inferiorly, which is thought to
be artefactual as there is no corresponding signal abnormality on the T2
weighted imaging in the sagittal or axial planes.
Thank you for your referral.
