Undersurface of the acromion is flat. No joint effusion is seen. No abnormal periarticular fluid collections are identified. Glenoid labrum is intact. Long head of the biceps is intact and is normally positioned. Supraspinatus tendon shows no evidence of full thickness tear and there is no evidence of fluid in the subacromial/subdeltoid bursa. I cannot exclude a small partial thickness tear along the distal most aspect of the right supraspinatus tendon in its inferior border. Subscpularis and infraspinatus tendons are intact. IMPRESSION: Minor degenerative changes of right shoulder. Possible small partial thickness tear along inferior border of right spuraspinatus tendon at tendon insertion, otherwise negative.

Left facial weakness in a patient w/hx of Bell’s Palsy and MS RESULT: MRI of the brain was obtained at 1.5 Tesla. Axial T1 weighted pre and post-Gadolinium, T2 weighted FLAIR, and diffusion images were obtained. Sagittal T1 weighted and high resolution coronal and axial pre and post-Gadolinium images of the internal auditory canals were obtained. The old study was available for comparison. The ventricles and sulci are within normal limits. There is no evidence of mass effect or midline shift. There are no extra-axial fluid collections. There are multiple punctuate areas of abnormal increased T2 weighted signal in the periventricular white matter and in the subcortical white matter of the centrum semiovale. Many of the foci are elongated and oriented toward the ventricles. Since the prior exam, there has been an increase in the number of hyperintense plaques. With contrast enhancement, none of the plaques appear to enhance at this time. The enhancement seen previously has resolved. The pattern and distribution is most characteristic for MS. The pituitary gland and cerebellum are unremarkable. There are multiple punctuate areas of hyperintense signal in the brain stem and brachium pontis. These do not enhance with Gadolinium. There is no edema or mass effect from the lesions. There is a 7 mm. focus of increased signal at the left CP angle. No abnormal signal, enhancement of discrete mass lesion is appreciated within the internal auditory canals. This would correlate with the patient’s symptoms of a left facial palsy. IMPRESSION: Multiple hyperintense lesions predominately in the periventricular white matter with characteristic pattern for MS. None of the plaques currently enhance. There has been fairly significant increase in the number of lesions since the last exam. Multiple lesions were also seen in the brain stem and the brachium pontis. Specifically, there is an 7 mm. focus in the left. CP angle which is probably the cause of the patient’s left facial palsy. No discrete abnormality was seen in the internal auditory canals.

RESULT: Parasagittal and axial images were obtained through the lumbosacral spine. There is normal marrow signal seen throughout the vertebral bodies. There is normal disc hydration seen throughout. The conus terminates normally at the level of L1. L3-4 level: There is a broad-based disc bulge present without focal disc herniation. This, in conjunction with bilateral facet hypertrophy and ligamentum flavum hyupertrophy, is causing some mild canal stenosis. There is also some mild stenosis of the lateral recesses and mild stenosis of right neural exit foramen. L4-5: There is a broad-based disc bulge present without disc herniation. Bilateral facet and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy is present. This is causing some mild canal stenosis and bilateral mild foraminal narrowing. L5-S1: Mild broad-based disc bulge is present without disc herniation. There is no canal stenosis. Lateral recesses and neuroforamina are patent bilaterally. IMPRESSION: Broad-based disc bulge L3-4, L4-5, and L5-S1 levels. No evidence of disc herniation. Bilateral facet and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy at the L3-4 and L4-5 levels. This is causing mild canal stenosis and mild narrowing of the neuroforamina bilaterally at the L4-5 level and on the right at the L3-4 level.

RESULT: After informed consent was obtained, the patient was placed in the stereotactic table in the prone position. The calcifications in the left breast were evaluated. Using a superior approach multiple core samples were obtained. The patient tolerated the procedure well without complications. Specimen radiograph confirmed calcifications in the specimen. A small tissue marker was deployed in the biopsy bed. The calcifications were completely removed and the tissue marker was in the biopsy bed with a small 2cm hematoma in the biopsy bed on the post procedure mammogram. The right breast was then placed in the stereotactic table and using an inferior approach the calcifications were localized stereotactically. Multiple core samples were obtained. Specimen radiograph calcifications within the specimen. The patient tolerated the procedure well. A small tissue marker was deployed in the biopsy bed. Post procedure mammograms confirm the clip in the biopsy bed without significant complications or hematoma. IMPRESSION: Successful bilateral stereotactic biopsies. Tissue markers were deployed in the biopsy beds with tissue markers in the biopsy beds confirmed on the post procedure mammograms. Specimen radiographs were positive for the right and left breast.
