(Medical Transcription Sample Report)
CT HEAD WITHOUT CONTRAST AND CT CERVICAL SPINE WITHOUT CONTRASTREASON FOR EXAM:
Motor vehicle collision.CT HEAD WITHOUT CONTRASTTECHNIQUE:
Noncontrast axial CT images of the head were obtained.FINDINGS:
There is no acute intracranial hemorrhage, mass effect, midline shift, or extra-axial fluid collection. The ventricles and cortical sulci are normal in shape and configuration. The gray/white matter junctions are well preserved. There is no calvarial fracture. The visualized paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells are clear.IMPRESSION:
Negative for acute intracranial disease.CT CERVICAL SPINETECHNIQUE:
Noncontrast axial CT images of the cervical spine were obtained. Sagittal and coronal images were obtained.FINDINGS:
Straightening of the normal cervical lordosis is compatible with patient position versus muscle spasms. No fracture or subluxation is seen. Anterior and posterior osteophyte formation is seen at C5-C6. No abnormal anterior cervical soft tissue swelling is seen. No spinal compression is noted. The atlanto-dens interval is normal. There is a large retention cyst versus polyp within the right maxillary sinus.IMPRESSION:
1. Straightening of the normal cervical lordosis compatible with patient positioning versus muscle spasms.
2. Degenerative disk and joint disease at C5-C6.
3. Retention cyst versus polyp of the right maxillary sinus.
