Lumbar spine of obese patient on Ingenia 3.0T

Case Study
Busch, Hans-Peter, M.D. Krankenhaus der Barmherzigen Brüder • Germany

Patient history

32-year-old male patient with heavy back pain, 180 kg, 163 cm size was imaged on Ingenia 3.0T because of suspicion of a disc herniation with nerve root compression or a tumor.
CT was done before, but the quality was not sufficient for diagnosis.

MR Examination

Thanks to the wide bore of Ingenia, this patient could undergo an MRI exam.

Only the Posterior coil integrated in the table was used.

Diagnosis

A small protrusion of the disc L5/S1 is seen, no tumor.

Clinical impact

With our wide bore Ingenia 3.0T, we could make a diagnosis, he did not fit into our conventional-sized MRI scanner.
Ingenia 3.0T provides excellent images.
