What does broad based posterior disc protrusion effacing anterior thecal sac mean on an MRI report?

What does broad based posterior disc protrusion effacing anterior thecal sac mean on an MRI report?

Disc protrusion: The disc is in the front part of the spine. The spinal cord and nerves are in the canal within the spine. They are encased in a "sac" containing fluid. If a disc is partially damaged, it will have a weaker outer rim which will bulge out and may compress the cord (esp in neck) or the nerves(in the lower back). Slight bulge may cause disc pain which is usually localized in the back. ...Read more

What does "ICA dissection with chronic healing" mean on an MRI report?

ICA: I believe that ICA refers to the internal carotid artery on that side of your head if the mri was of your brain. The report describes a tear in that artery that was contained enough so that healing of the torn area sealed off and healed without hemorrhaging and that a major vascular and brain catastrophe was averted. Of course the physician who ordered and reviewed that report can better answer ...Read more

Keeping track of these and their progression can help determine the progression of your disease. ...Read more

The tissue at the base of the tongue being prominent may just be normal anatomy for you personally or a sign of significant infectious challenge to that tissue. Your doctor who sent you for the MRI should be able to tell you whether to worry or not. ...Read more
