Would a spinal Tumor show on an MRI scan?

Would a spinal Tumor show on an MRI scan?

Usually: Sometimes a spinal cord tumor, especially with extrinsic compression, can result in false localizing clinical signs, which could result in imaging at wrong level, but if precise, the MRI will show lesion. However, you say that you have B-12 issues, and this can cause spinal cord problems in posterior columns, which are also seen on MRI. Do you feel Concierge visit might help? ...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

Would a spinal compression fracture show on CT scan 5 yrs later?

Would a spinal compression fracture show on CT scan 5 yrs later?

Yes: Compression fracture of the spine is when the vertebral body (bone of the spine) has collapsed on itself. While the bone may heal, the loss of height of the bone is usually still seen and an should be apparent on CT imaging if that bone is included on the exam. However may need to have images reviewed in the sagittal and coronal planes for it to be seen. ...Read more

Brain MRI cavernous angioma ?

Brain MRI cavernous angioma ?

Commonly seen on MRI: Cavernous angioma is a cluster of tiny but abnormal blood vessels that can be seen in the brain or spinal cord. Many people never experience symptoms from a cavernous angioma and may never even know they have one. They do have a tendency to bleed and depending on the location and size, they can cause seizures or other neurologic symptoms. ...Read more

Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Hematoma- blood coll: Hematoma is collection of blood somewhere in the body...anywhere in the body....it's called a hematoma. Parietal tells us the location (Parietal lobe of the brain) usually due to high blood pressure while Subdural hematoma means collection of blood below the level of the DURAL cover of the covering of the brain called the meninges...often times traumatic cause but also often can be spontaneous. ...Read more

What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Different: A hematoma is like a bruise or collection of blood from a trauma. In parietal hematoma this is in the parietal lobe of the brain, so it is in the brain tissue itself. A subdural hematoma is just under the dura mater one of the coverings of the brain so it is up close to the skull. ...Read more

Can sub dural hematoma be seen on MRI or CT months after it has occurred?

Maybe: The residua of a subdural hemorrhage can be seen for several weeks to months as the blood resorbs on MRI and ct. ...Read more

Is subchondral edematous contusion a bone bruise?

Is subchondral edematous contusion a bone bruise?

Yes: A bone bruise is actually a stress fracture. The inner trabeculae of the bone actually break. The healing of the stress fracture conincides with symptom resolution. ...Read more

Knee mri showed torn meniscus and bone spurs. Now dr wants bone scan.is that scan needed after mri. What would bone scan show that isn't on mri??

Knee mri showed torn meniscus and bone spurs. Now dr wants bone scan.is that scan needed after mri. What would bone scan show that isn't on mri??

Generally,: finding a meniscal tear and bone spurs on a knee MRI doesn't require a bone scan for further evaluation. There must be something else they are concerned about, but it is difficult to speculate with limited information. Talk to your doctor about why the bone scan is needed. ...Read more

Could MRI or CT scan detect brain cancer?

Sure: Mri would be the imaging test of choice, though often we start with a ct. Ultimately, you'll likely need a biopsy to prove it's a cancer. ...Read more

Can CT scan without contrast show brain aneurysm?

Can CT scan without contrast show brain aneurysm?

Unlikely: Ct scan without contrast is unlikely to show an aneurysm unless it is very large and is calcified. A ct angiogram is a better study to visualize an aneurysm. ...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

Could a mri/ct scan detect all brain injurys?

Could a mri/ct scan detect all brain injurys?

Nope: Sometimes you can see evedence of bleeding. With traumatic brain injury sufficient to cause changes on ct typically survival is markedly reduced. Certain types of MRI done at the right time following a brain injury can sometimes show evidence of cerebral contusion. Much of the damage done with traumatic brain injury is microscopic (too small even with diffuse axonal injury) to be seen on mri. ...Read more

Does a CT guided injection help posterolateral disc herniation?

Does a CT guided injection help posterolateral disc herniation?

Yes, very accurate: Ct guided procedure gives excellent "accuracy" in guiding the needle to the exact location to be injected. The process involves highly trained docs/technicians to get incredible pin-point accuracy. Best of luck if you are undergoing the procedure. ...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

Ct findings 6.1x3.7x2.1cm intramuscular lipomatous gastrocnemius mass. Likely lipoma. MRI advised. Was told do nothing unless worsens.I'm Concerned?

Ct  findings 6.1x3.7x2.1cm intramuscular lipomatous gastrocnemius mass.  Likely lipoma. MRI advised. Was told  do nothing unless worsens.I'm Concerned?

Get MRI to be sure: MRI is better than CT to characterize soft tissue masses. IV contrast would likely be used for lipoma analysis. These statements assume the patient is a candidate for MRI and contrast. Lipomas are benign, but it is nice to almost completely exclude a rare liposarcoma--less than 3 in a million people diagnosed in a year. MRI along with a benign history and presentation does this. ...Read more

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 ...Read more
