Can Nerve Pain Be Seen On Mri
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
Yes: Optic nerve can be seen on ct, especially with contrast. Depending on the space between the imaging sections, one may see only part of the optic nerve. Mri can be a better imaging study of the nerve, which is soft tissue. Ct is better for examining bony structures. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
To some extent : Xrays are two dimensional studies and as such do not really show the area of the nerve canal itself, but there are Times when we can look at a persons xrays and know the person almost certainly has spinal stenosis based upon what the X-ray looks like.

Had 2nd MRI with contrast on spine. Have numerous perineural cysts. What can be done to reduce back pain and rib pain from these cysts?
Depends: These perineural cysts can be treated with transforminal epidural steroid injections or even radiofrequency ablation procedures to the facet joints to reduce pain from them. If these do not help then consider possible surgery, but surgery has not shown any real good long term results either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Push and poke on and mark with a pen the specific areas you feel the pain origins and see a pain doctor ...Read more

If the MRI rules out your spine as a source then a nerve injury might need to be evaluated. ...Read more

Pain from facet joints is usually achy and can certainly radiate down into the leg. Usually the pain from facet joints goes into the buttocks, back of the thigh and sometimes to the upper calf. Worse with standing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have nerve pain in my right foot when bending,doing some activities&when holding an object, plus a lower back pain, Lumbar MRI is normal.sacrum MRI?
CT Scan: I would suggest a CT scan of the lumbar back. Your symptoms are still suggestive of an L4 radiculopathy. MRI is better at seeing muscles not nerves. Ask the radiologist to suggest the best imaging test. Some CT scans use dye some do not. Your regular doctor can order the CT based on the radiologists input. An Orthopedic spine specialist could offer better diagnostic/imaging next steps as well. ...Read more
Causes of nerve pain from the L. thumb-wrist, to the L. Arm bicep, with a swollen 1 in. lump around Extensor pollicis brevis, with a clear neck MRI ?

See a specialist for electrodiagnostic testing or imaging studies. ...Read more
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon).
