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. ...Read more
Mri of the lumbar but the radiologist didn't remark on a white round spot at the anterior sacrum s3 region. ?
3 possibilities: There are 3 things in imaging studies that a radiologist won't mention: normal anatomy, "artifact" (false spots, lines or shadow caused by machine error/interference), and things that are simply missed because radiologists are humans. You could discuss this with the doctor who ordered the study who may be able to contact the radiologist to inquire, or seek a second opinion if still concerned. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

My MRI report say this: levoconvex curvature of the lumbar spine. The spinal cord terminates at the inferior aspect of the t12 vertebral body.Meaning?
Doctor speak: We need to sound smart. It basically means a bit of a scoliosis i the lower spine with the apex of the curve pointed to the left. The spinal cord is ending at the bottom of the last thoracic vertebrae, which isn't to far from normal.

Had an MRI on the lumbar spine. The radiologist noted in his impression that i had innumerable cystic lesions on my liver. What are cystic lesions?
3 yrs lytic bone lesions through axial skeleton -skull. Extramedullary hematopoiesis. New MRI spots on brain-bone marrow expansion. Can this be fatal?
Depends: Bone marrow expansion throughout the skeleton typically signals either that the marrow is i appropriately expanding into these compartment such as in a myeloproliferative disorder or the present regions of marrow production are insufficient to keep up with current body needs. Regardless of the cause this is best answered by hands on evaluation, testing and management by an hematologist. ...Read more

Is it normal for a MRI to show white spots on spine not the spinal cord but by the discs in between them
It can be: It is difficult to answer this without seeing the MRI or at least knowing more about the MRI. There are two main types of pictures taken in an MRI, they are labelled as "T1" and "T2" images. Also, sometimes contrast (a compound injected intravenously for the MRI) is given. A white area in the center of the discs on a T2 image is normally suggestive of healthy (well hydrated) discs and is normal ...Read more
