Atypical Hemangioma Spine Mri
Vertebral: hemangiomas are common incidental findings on spine MRIs. They are generally of no concern, so much so that some radiologists might not bother mentioning them on the report. From a radiologist's point of view, calling a hemangioma atypical would indicate that the hemangioma doesn't completely fulfill all of the classic imaging criteria,but is still likely a hemangioma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
What does normocephalic, atraumatic without any lesions mean? I have degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, herniated discs, empty cell syndrome, atypical hemangioma in l10 spine.
Unlikely: You will need ct chest i would guess. ...Read more
Atypical hemangioma on spine MRI. Why spine MRI can't determine cancer? Full-body scan recommended but how about whole-body MRI to avoid radiation?
Not performed.: Contrary to what you might have been told, a "whole body MRI" is almost NEVER performed - it's too expensive, & the technology doesn't work to make it easier. A PET or PET/CT scan is a better test for detecting cancer, but unless you have SYMPTOMS indicating cancer, the chance of picking something up is remote. It wastes your time, worry, & money. Hemangiomas are common. TTYD or use HealthTap Prim ...Read more
Have hashimoto's; demyelinating brain lesions, one atypical; benign vertebral lesions, one atypical hemangioma. R these connected, or possible MS too?
Not connected: Hemangiomas and multiple sclerosis lesions can be difficult to differentiate on mri. Brain lesions of the demyelinating type are usually caused by multiple sclerosis but need to be diagnosed carefully, especially when atypical. Hemangiomas and multiple sclerosis are not connected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI of lumbar spine showed regions of focal fatty replacement and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine and chronic wedge deformities. Should I worry?
Not too much: The area of fatty replacements and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine are not significant, and pose no future problem for you. However, the chronic wedge deformities may be due to prior trauma with injury to the vertebral bodies, or possible osteopenic compression fractures. Discuss with you doctor about possibly osteoporosis or other bone abnormality, and how to limit further injury. ...Read more
Cervical spine MRI showed normal spine curvature but straight spinal cord that didn't follow spinal curve. What is this?
Normal: The cord does not travel exactly as the bony architecture does. This is likely more of a comment by the radiologist rather than any real pathology. ...Read more
Your radiologist: Your radiologist. Your orthopod (if you were referred and he ordered the study) will probably take a look as well, for any surgical planning, etc. But ultimately a radiologist will make the final read and is responsible for the findings. ...Read more
Not really: It is windowed to focus on the lumbar spine so you don't really appropriately visualize the colon on the lumbar spine mri. This particular study is not a good study at all to evaluate the colon. To properly evaluate the colon, ask your doctor to inform you on what study is needed to properly visualize the colon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CT Brain shows mass prepontine cistern CPA meningioma. Symptoms consistent with diagnosis. MRI contrast show no lesion. Symptoms persist! Now what?
Very strange: Not certain what to make of the disparity between the CT scan and the MRI. In some cases, a lesion is so small that it is missed by the artifact created by the thickness of the MRI slices. I would ask your doctor if an MRI of the brainstem with "thin slices" might be reasonable to confirm/refute the CT--with and without contrast. Take care and stay healthy! ...Read more
Usually: Sometimes a spinal cord tumor, especially with extrinsic compression, can result in false localizing clinical signs, which could result in imaging at wrong level, but if precise, the MRI will show lesion. However, you say that you have B-12 issues, and this can cause spinal cord problems in posterior columns, which are also seen on MRI. Do you feel Concierge visit might help? ...Read more

No: Both are fairly common. I hope neither becomes troublesome ...Read more
Found multiple lesions on spine mri? Neurologist said perineural cysts. Could this be cancer or mets?
If noted on MR. ..: ...The appearance of mets=u have a primary tumor, an mr is very good at recognizing benign from malignant, so trust ur neurologist ; ask 2 have a second interpretation from another radiologist. Usually most departments have neuro radiologists, ; if not ask 4 it 2 b sent out 2 one. Very easy 2 do as all is digital. Example mayo clinic images r read in any 1 of their venues, not the 1 images wr done. ...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
