Tingling and numbness both upper and lower extremities. MRI of neck showed mild posterior bulging of disk between C5 and C6.

Wait for 6 weeks : Bulged disks may not need immediate attention like herniated discs. After age 35 all scans will show some degree of bulging of disks. Wait for 6 weeks or so. If no improvement see a neurosurgeon ...Read more

My mri shows hypolastic right vertibal artery and mild irreularity along the bilaeral segment of internal carotid artery?

My mri shows hypolastic right vertibal artery and mild irreularity along the bilaeral segment of internal carotid artery?

Low value finding.: Why? 2 reasons: 1. Spacial resolution of MRI (even more so than CT) is very low compared to the complexity of the anatomic structures named & 2. Arteries are not being visualized, only a contrast agent within the blood inside the artery. Get & study the image data yourself; compare with Netter anatomy illustrations. Irregularity is c/w artery Ds. Good quality echo of carotid walls far better. ...Read more

What does 'diffuse severe attenuation of the left vertebral artery" mean on a neck ct scan with contrast?

What does 'diffuse severe attenuation of the left vertebral artery" mean on a neck ct scan with contrast?

Risk of stroke: Depending on age and other risks, this could be caused by arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), certain autoimmune diseases associated with arterial inflammation (arteritis), certain infections (e.g. syphilis), and other conditions. Whatever the cause, the person with this finding may be at high risk for stroke. Discuss with your doctor without delay. ...Read more

What does 'diffuse severe attenuation of the left vertebral artery" mean on a neck ct scan with contrast? Could it be cause of previous spontaneous arterial brachial clot or subclavian clot?

Hard to: say with certainty without access to the images and report, but most commonly this is simply due to a developmental/congenital anatomic variation whereby one vertebral artery is very small. This would not be the cause of a clot elsewhere. ...Read more
