enhanced posterior clivus likely venous plexus.

 enhanced posterior clivus likely venous plexus.

Probably normal: Limited information here, am assuming this is a MRI finding. Venous plexus in this location is normal. If this is simply an incidental finding, probably no follow up necessary, or possibly an additional study or follow up MRI in a short time if there is some uncertainty. As always, speak with your clinician regarding appropriate course of action. ...Read more

Explain my anomaly: sup. Sag. Sinus extending into posterior fossa in the midline w/bifurcation into two veins draining into jugular bulbs?

Not an issue: You just possess a variation of some of the venous drainage in the brain, and has no pathological significance. Has nothing to do with your headaches or dizziness. Ask you doctor why you possess these issues, and what treatment might help. Maybe see a neurologist. ...Read more

See good knee...: This is purely an MRI reading of your knee.'partial' acl and PCL tears in your age group means very little to me unless you had a very significant , recent knee injury w/ a hemarthrosis .( which u don't have).'chondromalacia'( of what..Mfc, lfc, patella?) means you have a component of arthritis in your knee. See a qualified, respected knee surgeon to discuss your options . Best of luck! ...Read more

MRI says recurrent tear of surgically repaired posterior supra and infra tendons w/23mm of medial retraction& 23mm anterior to posterior gap.This bad?

Ask Orthopedic Surgn: The MRI just gives an anatomical report, it tells you nothing about how it moves. Your question is better posed relating to "function" (i.e., "can you still use the shoulder, & for how long?"). This question is best asked of the doctor who ordered the MRI (& should have a copy of the report). If you get no answer, take your MRI picture + report to an Orthopedic Surgeon. Use HealthTap Prime for ref ...Read more

What is a posterior osseous protuberance from the posterior aspect of the odontoid?

What is a posterior osseous protuberance from the posterior aspect of the odontoid?

Odontoid protuberanc: What is being described is excessive bone growth on the odontoid which is a bone unit at the top of the spine, at the base of the skull. If this extra bone is causing compression on the spinal cord then it might been to be removed. If there are no symptoms then one would just followed it with MRIs. ...Read more

What does signal changes in the posterior left medial menicus and posterior lateral meniscus mean?

What does signal changes in the posterior left medial menicus and posterior lateral meniscus mean?

Degeneration: Mri scans image tissue by measuring hydrogen atoms such as are found in water (h2o - 2 parts hydrogen, 1 part water) . As a meniscus ages the tissue degenerates and is replaced by fluid which is mostly water. Increased MRI signal ( increased fluid) usually means some degeneration of the meniscus which is a consequence of aging. ...Read more

What causes an avulsion fracture of the left anterior superior iliac sartorius?

What causes an avulsion fracture of the left anterior superior iliac sartorius?

Sudden muscul force: The mechanism of injury in apophyseal avulsions is sudden forceful concentric or eccentric muscle contraction during running, jumping or kicking a ball, which results in traction on the unfused apophysis. Extreme passive stretching and chronic repetitive microtrauma have also been implicated in the development of apophyseal avulsion. ...Read more

grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus. grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus. Knee surgery?

grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in
anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus.
grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus.
Knee surgery?

Meniscal tears: Typically grade 3 meniscal tears require surgery in young patients. Goal is preservation of the meniscus.So if it has torn in the zone where it has a good blood supply, it can be sutured and can heal. If it is torn away from the blood supply. It requires partial removal of the torn portion. All done by an experienced Orthopaedic knee surgeon. ...Read more

Ct head scan results are frontal lobe sulci bilateral prominent. Prominate subarachnold space. Midline lipoma. Anterior interhemispheric fissure promi?

Atrophy: The midline lipoma probably doesnt warrant any treatment. These are usually incidental findings, but they can be associated with some congenital brain disorders. You basically seem to have less brain in your skull relative to fluid spaces relative to others. Have your doctor review the scan with you. ...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

Where is the cephalic vein?

Where is the cephalic vein?

Arm: The cephalic vein is found in the upper extremity. The vein extends in line with the base of the thumb, coursing up the forearm and upper arm just in front of the deltoid muscle. The cephalic vein dumps into the larger veins of the shoulder region. The cephalic vein is often visible in body builders as the large superficial vein which courses across the deltoid shoulder region. Popular for iv's. ...Read more

What diffuses the tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with posterior displacement within the intercondylar?

What diffuses the tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with posterior displacement within the intercondylar?

Nothing: There is nothing that would "diffuse" a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (acl). Acl is one of only few ligaments in our body that is entirely intra-articular which means it is not within soft tissues but is sitting inside the joint space with some surrounding joint fluid. This atmosphere makes it impossible for the ACL to heal (which I am assuming what you meant by diffuse). ...Read more
