Mr Cervical Spine With And Without Contrast
See neurosurgeon: Sounds like you have a growth in neck which could threaten spinal cord. Do not waste time, see neurosurgeon ASAP. Whether conservative approach or surgery unclear from your description, but would cover all the bases regardless, as there might be considerable risk.
I had an MRI (no contrast) on my cervical spine. The findings report starts off saying, "On parasagittal MR imaging mild" what does that mean?
The information: Is incomplete. Parasagittal just means a particular plane of imaging, in the case of the spine it means a lateral or sideways view. But, "mild"......what?
Depends on problem: Much can be learned from MRI without contrast but if a vascular anomaly or tumor is suspected the IV dye helps to show the extent of the lesion and it's location in areas that are not well delineated without the dye. If your doctor recommended it, you should go ahead and have the dye injected. Avoid it if you are allergic to the dye.

Maybe: Mri's are very focused exams. To get the best quality imaging of the area of interest, the field of view is limited as much as possible. The trachea may have been included, but not necessarily. You should speak with your doctor or the radiologist that read the study and ask them to look at the trachea. If it is seen, they can answer your question and if not they can recommend another test.
I had MRI cervical spine w&w/o contrast. Impression says: c6-7 protrusion & spondylosis w/mild left neural foraminal compromise & c5-6. Pls explain?
Cervical Spine MRI: The findings identify degeneration of the discs in the cervical spine causing compression of two hole in your spine (c5-6, c6-7). If you are having left arm pain, this may be the cause. Otherwise the findings are a normal progression of spinal wear and tear of a 56 yo spine. Please review the findings with the physician who ordered the MRI or a surgeon specializing in spinal surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a CT on my cervical spine without contrast everything is good but how do I get rid of a mild degenerative disc at C6 and C7 r what kind of meds?
Allergic to 2 CT scans iodized IV contrast exams, itching, rash. Dr. Wants MRI cervical spine with contrast. Is this a good idea, is this contrast diff?
Yes: Ct scan contrast is totally different than MRI contrast. Ct contrast agents is usually iodinated and are classifed as either ionic or non-ionic. In contrast, MRI contrast agents usually contains chelated gadolinium. Tell the radiologist about your previous ct scan contract allergic symptoms when getting your mri.See 1 more doctor answer
Ubiquitous: Degenerative neck and back pain is akin to wrinkles in the skin. Age happens, and the alternative (bring aging to a grinding halt with death) is not appealing. Accept some aches and pain, use nsaid's/tylenol to control, salonpas hot patches, strengthen the core, consider mckenzie pt (doc's rx needed). If persistent, further evaluation. Should not be life altering under most circumstances.See 1 more doctor answer
Stretching and: Strengthening of the cervical paraspinals. One of the main causes of cervical straightening is cervical paraspinal spasms. Correct these and tis will often help return the lordotic curvature to your cervical spine.
I have a number of problems with my lower spine and cervical spine. I get shots for pain. I think the shots are causing more problems. Is there any da?
Usually not: But if of no benefit, b evaluated by a spinal surgeon.
Grind creak and hurt: Can also be asymptomatic don't confuse image findings for a diagnosis to mak a diagnosis you need three parts history physical exam clinical impression confirmed on a appropriate image selected for known sensitivity and spe cficity for the diagnosis you are looking for.See 1 more doctor answer
Benign nerve growth: A neuroma is a benign tumor or overgrowth of nerve cells which may grow from the nerve or be due to a focal injury. Neuromas can occur anywhere a nerve is. A cervical spine neuroma arises from nerves exiting the spine in the neck region. Many are small, and cause no problem. Larger ones or ones affecting muscle and pain function need evaluation. Your neurologist can help.See 1 more doctor answer
