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
Yes I have pain that radiates from vagina to my hip and lower back area have had MRIS CT SCANS blood work nothing shows what could it be thanks?
Had MRI of left hip, complete structural detachment left labrum from 12 to 2 o clock position and Tarlov cysts in sacrum, what would be best treatmt.
Ct pelvis=fluid in depen (penicillamine).Portion of pelvis. Mri=abnormal signal from 11mm round something in r. Upper sacrum. Pain in hip, butt, leg on r. What is it?
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

How can I differentiate whether my hip and groin pain is nerve or muscle related? Have had lower back pain, but MRI looks good.
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

Mass on the back of my neck, attached to R side of my spine. Had stat MRI. Have lower back pain-4 months, hip/leg pain. Does this sound like a tumor?

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
MRI results show "possible" hemangioma on my sacrum (S5). I know this location is rare for hemangiomas. Should I be concerned by the word "possible"?
NOT AT ALL:
This is an "incidental" finding...very common in such studies...if suggestion is made about further studies and or follow-up follow them...if not. NOT to worry!
Hope this is helpful

Mri show hairline facture on each side of sacrum 1 on pubic bone from 7/5 fall. Still pain limited movement, how much longer to recovery?
Can an MRI of the sacrum show a non union or fracture? I got one in 2016 for a fall in 2012 because I still have pain.
My MRI shows I have ischiofemoral impingement in my hip. What is this? And how is it treated? I am 17 y/o female. There is no info on the internet.
Dr said need more Xray or MRI to investigate hip impingement. If had an MRI does this make the X-ray pointless? IE: Doesn't an MRI show more than XR?
Need both: Both additional X-rays and an MRI with arthrogram are needed to work up hip impingement. The MRI looks at the hip labrum (cartilage) and rules out a vascular necrosis. It can spot subtle arthritis. The X-rays and possible CT scan help understand the bone shapes particular to impingement. These are needed to guide treatment. ...Read more

Dr told me have l hip dysplasia. Mri shows asymmetrical hypertrophied muscles on right side -is this to laterally rotate r side to make even with left?
Compensatory changes: More than likely the left hip dysplasia is causing asymmetric gait which is being compensated for by hypertrophy of the right pelvic and leg muscles. Since you do not provide any information about the severity, symptoms or x-ray findings, it would not be appropriate to comment on treatment. ...Read more
If my 2 cm tarlov cysts are pressing on the sciatic nerve and is the cause of my hip pain, can the MRI show proof that the cysts pressing on the nerve?
Yes.: There are two ways Tarlov Cysts can be best seen radiographically. MRI is the test of choice. But CT Myelogram can also be very helpful. The MRI can clearly show the cyst compressing one of the nerves, L5 or S1 that contributes to the Sciatic Nerve. If you are telling me that your Tarlov Cyst measures 2 cm then you must also have had an MRI. Moreover, a cyst that measures 2 cm is very large. ...Read more
