Hemangioma Spine Mri
Atypical hemangioma on spine MRI. Why spine MRI can't determine cancer? Full-body scan recommended but how about whole-body MRI to avoid radiation?
Not performed.: Contrary to what you might have been told, a "whole body MRI" is almost NEVER performed - it's too expensive, & the technology doesn't work to make it easier. A PET or PET/CT scan is a better test for detecting cancer, but unless you have SYMPTOMS indicating cancer, the chance of picking something up is remote. It wastes your time, worry, & money. Hemangiomas are common. TTYD or use HealthTap Prim
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
Vertebral: Hemangiomas are common incidental findings on spine MRIs. They are generally of no concern, so much so that some radiologists might not bother mentioning them on the report. From a radiologist's point of view, calling a hemangioma atypical would indicate that the hemangioma doesn't completely fulfill all of the classic imaging criteria, but is still likely a hemangioma.See 1 more doctor answer

Had MRI spine. Showed small T 2 hyperintense splenic lesion may represent cyst or hemangioma. Is this concerning?
Not at all: As long as they are small there is no significant risks. Small splenic cysts are fairly frequent findings. Hemangioma of the spleen less common than in the liver but as long as they are small cause no significant issues
Scared. Had MRI of cervical spine in 2009 and 2010.Incidental finding of large hemangioma. No action evet taken. Recent back pains. Ref. To neurodurgeon.
Patience: Hemangiomas are discovered often on mris and are usually incidental (not the cause of the problem, just found coicidentally). If you have changing or worsening symptoms, then repeat MRI is indicated along with follow up with an orthopaedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon. It looks like you are already on track for that. Remain calm and wait until you can discuss this with the neurosurgeon.See 2 more doctor answers
MRI of lumbar spine showed regions of focal fatty replacement and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine and chronic wedge deformities. Should I worry?
Not too much: The area of fatty replacements and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine are not significant, and pose no future problem for you. However, the chronic wedge deformities may be due to prior trauma with injury to the vertebral bodies, or possible osteopenic compression fractures. Discuss with you doctor about possibly osteoporosis or other bone abnormality, and how to limit further injury.
I have an MRI from a year ago showing a bulging disk in my lumbar spine as well as signs of a spinal hemangiomas. Prior to the MRI, I experienced 4 years of Chronic Pain that no one could figure out the cause of. I am still in pain on a daily basis and it

MRI: Varies with the technique, but may take about an hour.
My lumber spine MRI shows conus medullaris terminates at lower L2. Is it normal or low lying conus medullaris? Signal morphology is normal though.
Pretty much: The conus medullaris does usually terminate between the L 1 and 2 vertebrae, so the finding you are describing is not likely significant or causing symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer
Can you see the right shoulder in a t spine mri? When I bend my shoulder a certain way I have a area on top of shoulder that hurts when pressed deeply
Depends: Spine MRI can be done without contrast because disks and soft tissues can be distinguished from the nerves and bones. We order MRI with and without contrast in patients with previous back surgery to distinguish scar tissue (which changes signal intensity on the MRI with the contrast) from disk material (which doesn't). We also order contrast if there is concern for possible infection or tumors.
See provider.: The best source for understanding your MRI report would be the physician or health care provider who ordered the examination.
