My MRI shows focal myelomalacia involving the cervical cord at C5-C6. Severe spinal cord stenosis at C3-C4. Subtle cortical edema inferior to the sten?

Cervical cord injury: Your spinal cord is being squeezed probably but not for certain by a disc rupture or boney overgrowth.I f no symptoms I expect you soon will. Surgery is very probable. See a neurosurgeon or orthopedist urgently. ...Read more

MRI of the brain 12.07.2014 CONCLUSION: external hydrocephalus. Lateral ventricles ASYMMETRICAL BRAIN L> R, Ext. Third ventricle is not expanded, the

Hydrocephalus: External hydrocephalus is a build up of cerebrospinal fluid over the surface of the brain rather than in the ventricles. Normally cerebrospinal fluid circulates from the brain to the spinal cord and back to the brain. When there is poor reabsorption or blockage then hydrocephalus (water on the brain) develops. See a neurosurgeon to help with treatment. ...Read more

What is focal 3 mm full-thickness hyaline cartilage defect involving the superiolateral acetabulum that partially undermines the superiolateral labrum?

What is focal 3 mm full-thickness hyaline cartilage defect involving the
superiolateral acetabulum that partially undermines the superiolateral labrum?

Cartilage loss: you are describing an area of your hip socket that has lost cartilage. Cartilage is the smooth and slippery lining of our joints that allows us to move our joints freely. The labrum is the lining around the hip socket. Your cartilage defect is in an area that could cause pain and clicking in your hip. Good luck ...Read more

My mother, 84, MRI scan> subacute infarcts, bilateral frontal lobes, small vessel ischematic changes inthe basal ganglia, periventricular white matter?

Small vessel disease: Mri in a 84 years old lady showing infarcts and small vessel disease means she is having ministrokes. That is very common in that age group. If she has heart disease or carotid artery disease or risk factors like high BP or diabetes or high lipids they should be controlled and she should follow up with her dr who can give her further recommendations. ...Read more

S+s of end stage primary brain cancer, (aa iii) r medial temporal lobe, diffuse numerous cells. Growing!/brainstem and posterior temp./basal ganglia?

Ask for more info: Signs and symptoms can vary greatly with any 'end-stage' cancer. Things like if it has spread to other organs, impacting functional status and alertness (sleeping more, in bed most of the time), causing pain/seizures, and so on. His doctors can maybe determine what is most likely. If not involved already ask for hospice or palliative care help as they could also help answer what the s/s might be. ...Read more

3 yrs lytic bone lesions through axial skeleton -skull. Extramedullary hematopoiesis. New MRI spots on brain-bone marrow expansion. Can this be fatal?

3 yrs lytic bone lesions through axial skeleton -skull. Extramedullary hematopoiesis. New MRI spots on brain-bone marrow expansion. Can this be fatal?

Depends: Bone marrow expansion throughout the skeleton typically signals either that the marrow is i appropriately expanding into these compartment such as in a myeloproliferative disorder or the present regions of marrow production are insufficient to keep up with current body needs. Regardless of the cause this is best answered by hands on evaluation, testing and management by an hematologist. ...Read more

MRI -Marrow edema, chondral thinning, elongated osteochondral lesion (6x17mm) lateral talar dome.increased signal distal syndesmosis -- need surgery?

Talar Dome Lesion: Kolleen, you have a large lesion off soft bone inside your ankle. Surgery can be an option, but attempting to create a pain free environment (from boot to just activity restrictions), contrast bathing nightly to increase circulation, Exogen bone stimulator for 9 months, repeat MRI in 6 months to see if improvement is being made, and other treatments available may avoid surgery.

MRI brain results  Impression- there is cerebral atrophy with subcortical WMC, consistent wit microangiopathic disease, demyelination, or giliosis?

Covering the bases: That signal that is seen in patients who age is seen very frequently. Most of the time it is what has become known as microangiopathic disease or small vessel disease. Demyelination and gliosis come with a more notable history. Gliosis or scarring and demyelination also produces symptoms that MRI is useful for. Depends on why you had the MRI in the first place. The first entity more common than 2 ...Read more

Result for my brain MRI -asymmetric decreased attenuation in the left basal ganglia, variant dilated perivascular spaces or punctate chronic lacune.  ?

MRI report: This is language used in radiology to describe what they see. Ordinarily, they cannot distinguish a small stroke (lacune) from a perivascular space. A "puntate lacune" though is very small. It is probably just the side view of a blood vessel (aka perivascular). Do you smoke? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have diabetes mellitus? Atrial fibrillation? These are stroke risk factors. ...Read more
