Question Answered step-by-step SCENARIO Identifying Data: MRI was performed through the brain,… SCENARIOIdentifying Data:MRI was performed through the brain, cervical spine, and upper thoracic region.Scans were generated in the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal (frontal) planes.   MRI Report:Evaluation of the brain parenchyma demonstrates the presence of multiple areas of abnormal increased signal intensity scattered through the white matter of both cerebral hemispheres. These areas are periventricular in location . The pattern is most compatible with a demyelinative process. Scans through the cervical spine and spinal cord demonstrate no definite areas of abnormal increased or decreased signal within the cord. The discs are intact. Evaluation of the upper thoracic region demonstrates an appearance similar to that of the cervical region.Note: The image above is an example and is not the MRI of this scenario.  A. What is an MRI? Briefly explain how it works.B. What combining forms indicate the regions of the body imaged?C. What is the brain parenchyma?D. From the report, what is a likely diagnosis (Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Multiple Sclerosis) ? Explain why.  Please keep all answers short and straight to the point.  Health Science Science Nursing HLT 141 Share QuestionEmailCopy link Comments (0)
