Does An Mri Of The Hips Show The Sacrum
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

Does a MRI show the back of knee? Is the meniscus located in the back of the knee? How accurate is a mri?
Good test: Mri does see the back of the knee and some problems, such as popliteal cysts, can cause pain there. The posterior horns of the menisci are also at the back of the knee and MRI can assess meniscal problems very well. For best results, make sure a radiologist with fellowship training in musculoskeletal imaging is interpreting the study. ...Read more
Will a CT of the abdomen and pelvis show imaging of the hips, specifically, if there is something compressing a nerve in the hips?
An Abd/pelvis CT: likely includes at least partial visualization of the hips, and could potentially detect some abnormalities in that region. However, since the exam was not specifically tailored to look at the hips, and moreover CT is not usually the study of choice to evaluate the hips(MRI is), I wouldn't rely on a pelvic CT to rule out hip abnormalities. ...Read more
Spine or ENT spaces: Mri of the neck could mean a study of the cervical spine, and therefore would show disc herniations, vertebral problems and spinal cord problems. It could also mean a study of the anterior spaces of the neck, in which case it will show any problems with the soft tissues, i.E cancer, infection and congenital anomalies. ...Read more
Magnetic resonance : An MRI of the brain shows the blood vessels indirectly because the moving blood creates a "signal void". A magnetic resonance angiogram of the brain shows the arteries more directly. The vessels may be detected through the administration of contrast or may be detected due to the movement of blood within the vessels. This latter phenomenon is referred to as flow related enhancement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does partial chondroplasty on the medial facet of the patella mean? Also why does it show a slight tilt of the patella on an x ray?
Osteoarthritis: You have osteoarthritis of the patella which means you have lost some of the thickness of the articular cartilage which is like losing some of the "rind on an orange". Tilting of the patella could be a result of the loss of the cartilage from arthriitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does osteochondritis dissecans mean in the knee? What does hypointense mean on an MRI scan of the knee? Can you tibia slip out of place?
Bone/cartilage shift: Osteochondritis dessicans refers to a condition in which a piece of cartilage and a small piece of bone have come detached. It is common in the knee. If the piece does not move much it may not hurt. However, it is common for it to get "stick" in the knee joint and may need surgery. Hypointense means loss of bone density which is not normal. The tibia can slip out of place somewhat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My doctor ordered a Sacrum coccyx MRI, however, the report says MRI pelvis and the findings say MRI of the bony pelvis and sacrum. IS this correct?
It is difficult: to determine whether the study was tailored properly without knowing exactly what was performed, and what the clinical indications were. However, if you are concerned that they didn’t mention coccyx, that is not an issue because the coccyx is connected to the sacrum, and any study that visualized the sacrum would necessarily include the coccyx. There would be no way not to. ...Read more
I have bilateral hip pain that bothers me when waking and laying on my sides. I had a lower back MRI done but they didn't find anything.
I need a MRI on my lower back and hips, but i'm very, very clusterphobic. I have always been told they can't put me in feet first to my chin?
Claustrophobia : You might ask about "open mri" scanners -- some are available, but i don't know about your community. They don't involve you being put into a tube. Another option is a dose of Ativan (lorazepam) before the procedure for calming. Hypnosis may help a lot too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How can I differentiate whether my hip and groin pain is nerve or muscle related? Have had lower back pain, but MRI looks good.
Hip: The t12 or L1 nerve from the low back can certainly cause pain that wrapped around and goes into the groin, but by far, the most common reason for groin pain (besides an inguinal hernia) is a hip joint issue. Hip joint arthritis will usually be painful when i rotate the thigh bone inward when the patient is seated. Also, in younger patients, a hip labral tear needs to be considered. ...Read more

Keep looking: Definitely not a normal complaint and diagnosis must be made. If your MRI of your lumbar spine is normal, it may be coming from your brain, your cervical, or your thoracic spine. It can be from a structural abnormality, which can be seen on an MRI, but it can also be caused by nonstructiral, neurological conditions as well. Your neurologist needs to take the ball and run with it or second opin ...Read more
Felling dull pain in right hand testicle/lower back/leg. Had all tests- testy, kidney ultrasounds/mri of pelvis/urine & blood clear. What could it be?
Urine culture?: You did not say if you had a urine culture done. Sometimes this kind of pain can be due to an infection that may not show up with routine urine cultures. An example is nongonoccocal urethritis or prostatiis. Some docs might try a course of antibiotics and see if that helps the symptoms, since cultures can be expensive. Discuss this with your doc or see a urologist. ...Read more
