Abnormal Brain Mri Results
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
Brain MRI says satisfactory intraluminal signal is noted in distal carotid vertebral and basilar arteries. Unremarkable brain MRA. What does this mean?
Normal vessels.: means normal vessels.Get a more detailed answer ›
Spinal cord lesion on t3/4, negative brain mri, positive for oligoclonal banding. Neurologist says ms. Can this be with negative brain mri?
Usually: An MRI is probably the best way to detect a brain tumor in a patient who has symptoms or findings on a medical examination that suggests a brain tumor may exist. Getting an MRI if you are asymptomatic(have no medical issues) is unwarranted and should not be done. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nope: Sometimes you can see evedence of bleeding. With traumatic brain injury sufficient to cause changes on ct typically survival is markedly reduced. Certain types of MRI done at the right time following a brain injury can sometimes show evidence of cerebral contusion. Much of the damage done with traumatic brain injury is microscopic (too small even with diffuse axonal injury) to be seen on mri. ...Read more
Merely technical: Looking directly at base of brain and pituitary requires slightly different cuts and angles, as the focus is directed to a small area of brain, but the software and pictures are handled in a similar fashion. In ms, we tend to use specialized approaches, such as flair or double inversion recovery to see the white matter spots better. Not needed for pituitary views, usually. ...Read more
Stimulants: Stimulants such as Cocaine and amphetamine exert their effects on the user's nervous system and change the user's emotions, behavior, and affects cognition. They may cause miicrovascular ischemic disease of the brain which is unlikely to be detected by MRI or ct scan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Spinal vs. MRI: These are different types of tests looking for different types of information. WE don't even know what the symptoms or the working diagnosis were. ...Read more
LLegNumbnes, xray n MRI of back show no nerve pressing, showed hemogliates, MRI w/out brain shows Few foci flair hypersensitivity 2 month MRI with c?
Leg numbness: I am not sure what you mean by the term hemogliates in reference to the MRI of the lumbar spine. Also, the brain MRI study is nonspecific in regard to the location of hyperintense foci. Discuss the MRI findings with your neurologist to determine if they have clinical relevance. ...Read more
A change: There is a change in the signal in the tissue that surrounds the brain ventricles. That is not very specific. For example as we get older than say 20? then this finding may become more prominent. It also depends on why you had the study done in the first place. It may reflect why you are having symptoms. To put it all together talk to your doctor. ...Read more
Hard to say: Discuss this with the doctor that ordered the test. ...Read more
Mri reading need interpretation , focal swelling with heterogenous abnormal signal in the spinal coed atc5-c6 level suggesting neoplasm has improved?
Need to discuss with: As stated, this sounds as if you had a type of previous "neoplasm" and the test is showing an improvement in the swelling around certain areas of your neck at c5-6. Possibly the radiologist did not know your history of previous neck surgery in the area. I recommend you have the ordering dr discuss your hx and the findings with the radiologist and then discuss in detail with you. Best wishes. ...Read more
Vein Thrombosis : Brain mr angiogram (mra) and mr venography (mrv) are specifically designed to examine your blood vessels. Mrv is often used to examine the intracranial venous system, particularly in the evaluation of dural sinus thrombosis. Mri in conjunction with mrv is both sensitive and specific enough to provide the best noninvasive method of diagnosing cerebral venous thrombosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Neurologic problem: An electronystagmogram (ENG) checks the neural signals to the eye muscles while your vision or field of view is altered. An abnormality may point to a functional problem (problem with way nerves are firing) or an anatomic problem (some abnormal structure/growth seen on brain MRI). Depending on what / how fast your symptoms developed, functional problems are more likely but talk to your Neurologist ...Read more
Technical: Usually during a CT scan, a contrast agent is injected intravenously. That agent is seen primarily in blood vessels. Unopacified vasculature means blood vessels which do not contain contrast, either because none was administered, or because there is diminished blood flow into those vessels. Decreased enhancement means that the area described doesn't appear in high contrast on the CT scan. ...Read more
Think about it, Remy: Whatever would you do brain MRIs for if they didn't show "damage"? The difficulty here lies with your terminology. Brain "damage" is so vague as to be essentially meaningless. MANY disease processes can afflict the brain, & the MRI appearance of "damage" is distinctive depending on the kind of "damage" it is. Neuroradiologists interpret the "damage" all day long. I'm very grateful that they exist. ...Read more
