How To Read Mri Lumbar Spine
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
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 ...Read more

What can be seen on myelogram that you can't see on mri? I have 6 herniated disk shown on mri, but neurosurgeon wants CT myelogram.
CT myelogram: While MRI scans are excellent for visualizing the soft tissues structures around the spine (e.g., discs, nerves, spinal cord), ct scans are generally superior when visualizing the bony structures (e.g., vertebra, facet joints, bone spurs). Mris can also be negatively influenced by either motion and/or metallic artifact. Conversely, ct scans can expose patients to unnecessary ionizing radiation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It is performed through the area where the nerve usually exits off the main spinal sac (called the neuro foramen). This foramen is an opening that allows access to the front of the spine through an incision on the back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
