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. ...Read more
Your radiologist: Your radiologist. Your orthopod (if you were referred and he ordered the study) will probably take a look as well, for any surgical planning, etc. But ultimately a radiologist will make the final read and is responsible for the findings. ...Read more

An MRI report shows no central cervical spinal canal stenosis but does show a right sided foraminal narrowing. Any impingement on the spinal cord?
Puzzled: If there were impingement on the spinal cord, the report would say so. Presumably you didn't just wander into an MR center & make an impulse purchase. The MRI was ordered by a Dr who took a history & did physical. It's Dr's responsibility to review test results with you or if he can't, to find someone who can. You have a right to an explanation in terms you understand. ...Read more

Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
