What does it mean that the posterior fossa is remarkable for a prominent cisterna magna&prominent masses medial bifrontal regions measuring 15mm?

Arnold Chiari: Sounds like an Arnold Chiari Malformation. Which is abnormal development to the cerebellar part of the brain and an increase in the diameter or the foreman magnum or hole that exits the base of the brain. ...Read more

What does left middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst mean?

What does left middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst mean?

Likely congenital: Typically found coincidentally when images obtained for very different purpose. Almost always present from birth, but on rare occasions can expand, but usually without mass effect. May be of value periodically to repeat scans to ascertain absence of issues. ...Read more

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

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

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

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

I've had two possible TIAs-MRI/A say-xanthoma formation w/in choroid plexus bilaterally-fetal origin right posterior cerebral arterycongenitalvarition?

I've had two possible TIAs-MRI/A say-xanthoma formation w/in choroid plexus bilaterally-fetal origin right posterior cerebral arterycongenitalvarition?

Normal variation: Fetal origin posterior cerebral artery is a normal finding you were born with and choroid plexus comments is also normal. I presume the MRI was otherwise normal. Please make sure to see a neurologist for a complete evaluation as TIAs are often warning signs for strokes. ...Read more

Mri report says, MRI signs arachnoids cyst middle cranial fossa on the right. Ectopia of the cerebellar tonsils in a big hole for tylochneo.Remedy?

Arachnoid cyst: Arachnoid cysts in the middle fossa are rather common and rarely need treatment. Ectopia of the cerebellar tonsils are also not uncommon and again rarely need treatment. ...Read more

FOR MY MOM INFERIOR CEREBELLAR TONSILLAR ECTOPIA 1.2CM BELOW FORAMEN MAGNUM.THERE IS A ASYMETRIC HERNIATION OF CEREBELLAR TONSILS RIGHT-1.2CM LEFT-8MM?

FOR MY MOM INFERIOR CEREBELLAR TONSILLAR ECTOPIA 1.2CM BELOW FORAMEN MAGNUM.THERE IS A ASYMETRIC HERNIATION OF CEREBELLAR TONSILS RIGHT-1.2CM LEFT-8MM?

Chiari malformation : Arnold chiari malformation type 1 is defined by cerebellar tonsils that extend below the foramen magnum. The symptoms range from none to headaches, numbness, pain and weakness. The condition can become life threatening when cerebrospinal fluid is blocked. It is important to see a neurosurgeon with experience treating this disorder to discuss the therapeutic options. ...Read more

Incidental arachnoid cyst found in lt temporal fossa 4cm in diameter. Does arachnoid cyst have anything with limaprost, prostaglandin and nsaids?

Arachnoid cyst: No. Arachnoid cysts of the temporal fossa are common findings on MRI studies. They are congenital (from birth) and usually without symptoms. Medications do not cause arachnoid cysts to form. ...Read more

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

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

Small pleomorphic adenoma(<2cm) on postero inferior part of superficial parotid gland.traditional incision needed?anyone do micro parotidectomy in ct?

Small pleomorphic adenoma(<2cm) on postero inferior part of superficial parotid gland.traditional incision needed?anyone do micro parotidectomy in ct?

Traditional incision: Pleomorphic adenoma of the superficial lobe of parotid requires removal of the superficial lobe. This operation is not performed on the lobe per se but on identifying the facial nerve and its branches and lifting the lobe off the nerve. The incision is designed to give landmarks that define the trunk of the nerve as it comes out of the stylomastoid foramen. Procedure this way is under 1 hr. ...Read more

CYSTS IN MAXILLARY SINUSES, RIGHT LARGER THAN LEFT OPACIFICATION OF MASTOID AIRCELLS PUNCTURE HIGH SIGNAL AREA SUBCORTICAL WHITE MATTER NASAL SEPTU?

   CYSTS IN MAXILLARY SINUSES, RIGHT LARGER THAN LEFT OPACIFICATION OF MASTOID AIRCELLS PUNCTURE HIGH SIGNAL AREA SUBCORTICAL WHITE MATTER NASAL SEPTU?

Reason for MRI?: If this was supposed to be an MRI of the brain then, the read of the sinuses is a common "red herring" that radiologists always tend to comment on but rarely do the comments make it into the annals of CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE nor do they ever have to do with the initial reason for which the scan was obtained. Bottom line is probably of no importance. But check with your doctor or neurologist. ...Read more

Brain right ventricle 8mm lesion -cyst or tumor?

Brain right ventricle 8mm lesion -cyst or tumor?

Hard to say: If the interpretation on the MRI by the radiologist is that it is a cyst, then it is likely benign. It also depends if there is any area of enhancement that would suggest a tumor. Also if you have serial MRI scans, you can tell if it is getting bigger or changing which is more likely a tumor. The location in the ventricle is important too. If it obstructs the foramen it could be a problem. ...Read more

Rentgen of sella turcica was comented like this: there is prononced shadowing (darkness) in sella turcica (Fosa hypophisalis). What does this mean?

Rentgen of sella turcica was comented like this: there is prononced shadowing (darkness) in sella turcica (Fosa hypophisalis). What does this mean?

I have no idea: Hi. Unfortunately, X-rays of the sella are next to worthless. All we do to investigate the pituitary anatomically is high resolution thin cut MRI with gadolinium. What is the clinical condition that made your doc try to look at the pituitary with X-ray? I hope that if there is real concern over pituitary function or question of tumor, you get an MRI. Good luck! ...Read more

My MRI brain show   coalescing  granulomata measur 8x 4 mm abutting the cuneus rt side. Neuro told likely neurocysticircosis in dgnrative stag pl adv.

Cystercercosis: If you do have an infection with taenia solium, or the pork tapeworm, you might be able to confirm with stool samples which may contain eggs. Since you have a lesion already documented, this does raise a risk of potential seizure activity, and you should discuss with your doctor whether or not it is wise to go on anti-epileptic drug. ...Read more

Ct scan says there is a 7.2x7.3cm prominent low-density structure above the quadrigeminal plate cistern, near the pineal gland, what could this be?

Ct scan says there is a 7.2x7.3cm prominent low-density structure above the quadrigeminal plate cistern, near the pineal gland, what could this be?

Hopefully cyst: Get an MRI scan without and with contrast to better evaluate the structure anatomically. Of course you should be examined by a neurosurgeon or neurologist. Severe headaches or neurological symptoms suggest the structure might exerting pressure on local brain structures. ...Read more
