MRI report reads L5-S1 moderate foraminal narrowing left bordering on severe and moderate to severe right foraminal narrowing as well please explain?
MCL: Injury to the medial collateral ligament (mcl) is a common sports injury. These injuries are graded as grade i, ii or iii which is akin to mild, moderate, severe. Most isolated mcl injuries heal without the need for surgery. Depending on the severity of injury, the healing time can vary between 6 and 10 weeks. ...Read more
My MRI shows moderate prepatella bursitis and moderate grade proximal patella tendinopathy involving deep fibres what are my treatment options ?
Modification of your: Activity is going to be the biggest help to your knees. There is no real surgical treatment for your problem outside of debridement of the patellar tendon. To improve your tendonitis, consider a short course of nsaids. Quad strengthening without flexion (straight-leg raises), ice massage over the tendon (ice frozen in a paper cup), no kneeling or crawling on knees and knee pads if you do. ...Read more

Knee MRI report:
- mild increased signal intensity of popliteal tendon, favor mild injury
can you please explain and suggest course of action?
Knee sprain: Could be a minor knee sprain of this tendon, if this is the only finding on the mri, it sounds fairly minor. Also depends some on whether you had an injury to the knee or not. Mri's are based on fluid and increased signal can mean increased fluid in the tendon as can happen if there is an injury to it. Rest, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, ice it down (rice) can help if it is swollen/hurts. ...Read more
Myocardial. Medium perfusion defect moderate intensity in basal mid inferior basal inferior partial reversibility. Ef54%. TID .97 abnormal redegenson.
Abnormal stress test: A "myocardial perfusion defect with reversibility" indicates that there is something reducing the blood supply to the heart muscle. Most commonly this would be because of atherosclerosis causing a blockage in the coronary artery. The next steps depend on the medical details. Additional testing, such as a catheter angiogram, may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you explain what patellar choridropathy grade 111 1v and osteochondritis moderate degenerative changes in posterior horn of medial menisus grade 1?
What does moderate prepatella bursitis and moderate grade proximal patella tendinopathy involving deep fibres mean as to how bad is injury ?
Not too bad: Thankfully, it does not suggest anything being torn a pre patellar bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa that is just superficial to the patellar tendon. The patellar tendon tendonopathy describes abnormality of the tendon itself. One way to describe it then is that you strained your patellar tendon as opposed to tearing it. It would be managed non operatively, sometimes using a brace. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can vary with age...: Cerebellar tonsils ascend (rise) with age. Some doctors suggest the following criteria for tonsillar ectopia: (1) herniation of 6 mm in those aged 0-10 years, (2) herniation of 5 mm in those aged 10-30 years, (3) herniation of 4 mm in those aged 30-80 years, and (4) herniation of 3 mm in those aged 80-90 years. ...Read more
What does Degenerative change,greatest at C5/C6 with moderate spinal canal and bilateral moderate to severe neural foraminal compromise mean?
Foraminal compromise: Implies the 6th cervical nerve root may be compressed ( leading to potential muscle weakness in the upper arm and or radicular pain down to the thumb or index finger ) Further information is needed ( exam findings ) to sort out the significance of both this and the central canal stenosis ( I would discuss this with your neurologist or neurosurgeon ) ...Read more
Facet Arthropathy: Could be facet arthropathy/arthritis. There are joints in the spine where the bones articulate and can develop bone spurs and cause the clicking with pain typically with extension. I would consider seeing a pain/spine specialist to see if facet injections or radio frequency ablation would be helpful for you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

An MRI of my C shows cord parenchyma reveals abnormal signal intensity & heterogeneity and moderate to severe left C5 foraminal narrow. Interpret?
Tricky: cannot interpret without report in front of me. And, cannot give specific information AND.... while multiple sclerosis, infection, tumor CAN give heterogeneity (tumor and infection would generally have a LOT more on the report) REGULAR DEGENERATIVE disease causes the cord to have inflammation and scarring. Often a reason for surgery. ...Read more
