LLegNumbnes, xray n MRI of back show no nerve pressing, showed hemogliates, MRI w/out brain shows Few foci flair hypersensitivity 2 month MRI with c?

Leg numbness: I am not sure what you mean by the term hemogliates in reference to the MRI of the lumbar spine. Also, the brain MRI study is nonspecific in regard to the location of hyperintense foci. Discuss the MRI findings with your neurologist to determine if they have clinical relevance. ...Read more

Mri (Definition)

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

Occipital neuralgia: We call this occipital neuralgia. Sometimes due to a condition known as arnold chiari malformation, sometimes due to disc in upper neck sometimes due to arthritis in the neck and sometimes just can't find cause, just have to treat it. Tegretol works fairly good for this. ...Read more

Radiology/neurology. Ct scan shows bone, MRI shows soft tissue, so therefore can't indentify disease of skull bones. Intercrainial means misdiagnosis?

Radiology/neurology. Ct scan shows bone, MRI shows soft tissue, so therefore can't indentify disease of skull bones. Intercrainial means misdiagnosis?

Both are complex: CT and MRI can identify bones and soft tissues of the skull and anatomy of the brain but in different types of detail. Intracranial means inside the skull. ...Read more

TIA while driving hi-way! Hospital did CT, MRI, ECG, EKG, Echo of neck & heart. MRI/ CT showed many tiny strokes! What tests next? See's Cardio Wed.

TIA while driving hi-way!  Hospital did CT, MRI, ECG, EKG, Echo of neck & heart. MRI/ CT showed many tiny strokes!  What tests next? See's Cardio Wed.

Cardiac event : Monitoring. Suggesting an embolic mechanism. Also a transesophageal echocardiogram may be needed. Most likely you will end up needing anticoagulation, Coumadin (warfarin) or the newer ones. ...Read more

Would a regular MRI w/contrast on brain reveal severe vertebral artery insufficiency/stenosis causing vertigo?

Would a regular MRI w/contrast on brain reveal severe vertebral artery insufficiency/stenosis causing vertigo?

Probably not,: you would need an MRI specifically tailored for that purpose, called an MRA(magnetic resonance angiography). There is a chance a standard MRI could pick up a vertebral artery stenosis, but not likely. ...Read more

Ordered CT scan brain MRI for lumbar spine after fall stairs lft leg has been numb 3yr prior to stairs spine not bad brain chronic microvascular ishemic white matter disease ms? Autoimmune?

Ordered CT scan brain  MRI for  lumbar spine after fall stairs lft leg has been numb 3yr prior to stairs spine not bad brain chronic microvascular ishemic  white matter disease ms? Autoimmune?

Ischemic Brain: Not likely. At your age, the vascualr ischemia is more apt to be due to chronic high blood pressure or diabetes. It is important to follow up on this with your doctor to avoid small lesions called "lacunar" infarcts. Often, medication can be prescribed which will improve your micro vascualr integrity and avoid further damage. ...Read more

Vl carotid bilat post TIA found:l internal carotid stenosis 50-79% by velocity. F/u with neck contrast mra, shows nothing normal study! how can it be?

Velocity accurate: Most likely accurate ultrasound. Repeat at 6 months. Unlikely a dissection with resolution- but possible. Or increased flow after tia? Would be unusual. Mra has value but some limitations of stenosis measurements. ...Read more

Is CT venography superior to X-ray venography when imaging the legs?

Both are accurate: in the hands of a skilled sonographer ultrasound is also a good method. All three techniques are useful to map the veins ...Read more

Chest pains. Echo scan = septal hypokinesis. Hr 138 BP 138/90. Ambulance to a&e. Doc says possible pericarditis. A&e says muscular skelelightous.

Chest pains. Echo scan = septal hypokinesis. Hr 138 BP 138/90. Ambulance to a&e. Doc says possible pericarditis. A&e says muscular skelelightous.

Pericarditis or not?: Pericarditis should not result in septal hypokinesis by echo. You may have myopericarditis (involvement of the heart muscle and the coverings of the heart), or a false-positive finding by echo (sometimes it looks like hypokinesis but it is actually not). Pulse rate is high but does happen with chest pain or discomfort. Your age makes coronary (heart disease) unlikely. You need to see a heart doc! ...Read more

Who reads the lumbosacral spine mri?

Your radiologist: Your radiologist. Your orthopod (if you were referred and he ordered the study) will probably take a look as well, for any surgical planning, etc. But ultimately a radiologist will make the final read and is responsible for the findings. ...Read more

Lumbar spine MRI says epidural fat attenuation. What is this?

Lumbar spine MRI says epidural fat attenuation. What is this?

Not sure: Epidural fat is common and it can get thickened. We call this epidural lipomatosis and it can narrow the spinal canal where the nerve roots run. It is somewhat controversial as to whether this is clinically significant. ...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

Having mri/mra of neck, carotid, and posterior fossa - will it show masses in the cerebellopontine angle, jugular, vagal, vestibular schwanommas, etc?

Head and Neck Masses: Mri uses large magnets to create images of possible masses. Mri is a related technology that images blood vessels to look for blockages or aneurysms (ballooning). While there are some more specialized tests to look at certain areas, in general, the answer to your question is yes. ...Read more
