Intrathecal lipoma in 11-year-old male

Case Study
Miller, Jeffrey, M.D. Phoenix Children's Hospital • USA

Patient history

An 11-year-old male with intrathecal lipoma involving descending nerve roots underwent an MRI  exam on Ingenia 3.0T at Phoenix Children's Hospital.

MR examination

Ingenia 3.0T was used. In the spine, gradient sequences (modified e-THRIVE for T1 and T2 FFE) are used to overcome flow artifacts and decrease T1 contrast limitations common in axial 3.0T spine imaging.

Diagnosis

Inthretical lipoma. Arrows point to fat extending along existing nerve roots on the right.

Impact of using Ingenia 3.0T

The addition of fat saturation pulses to the T2 FFE sequences has enabled better delineation of areas of intrathecal fat seen against the background CSF.
