Sample text

The images are T1-weighted (18a) and T2-weighted (18b) sequences using the spin-echo technique. On a T1-weighted image, gray matter is lower in signal intensity than white matter, fat is bright, and CSF is dark. On a true T2-weighted image, gray matter is higher in signal intensity than white matter, CSF is bright and fat is dark. On newer, fast spin-echo T2 sequences, fat and CSF are both bright. T1 sequences demonstrate anatomy well and serve as background when MRI contrast agents are used. T2 sequences show many focal pathologic lesions as areas of high signal, including primary and metastatic tumors, infarcts, demyelination, cerebritis, and abscesses.

Can a definitive diagnosis be made from this? iii. What is the next step in the management plan? iv. What is the prognosis in such a patient with normal initial investigations? 47a The first picture (47a) is of a teased nerve preparation from a sural nerve biopsy of a 50-year-old male who presented with a 2-year history of a relapsing patchy motor and sensory neuropathy. The biopsy was done after nerve conduction studies. The second picture (47b) is an MRI scan of the sacral spine of the same patient.

Anterior horn cell): MND; ALS. (4) Myelopathy (syringomyelia): a centrally expanding lesion involving the anterior horn cells responsible for the small hand muscles. ii. The features associated with the wasted hand muscles will help either to localize the lesion or to indicate a possible diagnosis. As well as involvement of the lower motor neuron, as indicated by the wasting of the muscles, additional abnormalities in other parts of the neurologic examination will narrow down the differential diagnosis.
