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

Ap &transverse diameter are these basically same size?

Yes: The slight variation in size of the liver cysts can be explained by differences in imaging modality. Ultrasound differs from cross-sectional imaging, such as MRI or CT scans by the nature of the test and operator dependency in ultrasonography. More importantly, as long as these remain simple liver cysts, there is no need for intervention. ...Read more

Pelvic pain for 4 months. 3 different ultrasounds came back normal. Mri showed cyst over 5cm on both ovaries. Why did they not show up on ultrasound?

MRI may be more accu: In some instances and depending on the size and shape of a patient's body MRI may be more accurate in detecting pelvic abnormalities. Also if the exams were performed on different dates the ovarian cysts may have developed during the time interval. Finally, having both transabdominal and transvaginal scans with ultrasound generally provides the most accurate images. Perhaps, both types of exams ma. ...Read more

MRI shows cyst in anterior cortex of distal femur and small joint effusion. Could this be causing my constant pain and can cyst be drained/treated?

There are many: types of "cystic" bone lesions and most do not represent true fluid-filled cysts. Some types of these lesions are completely innocuous and require no treatment, others can be more serious. So it is difficult to render an opinion without evaluating the images or at least knowing the specific description in the MRI report. ...Read more

Mri shows cyst in s2 (racepinephrine). Want to do lumbar traction for lower back pain. Will it affect cyst?

Mri shows cyst in s2 (racepinephrine). Want to do lumbar traction for lower back pain. Will it affect cyst?

Maybe: Cyst at s2 (racepinephrine) sounds like a tarlov cyst. Thats a fluid filled sac that normally doesnt cause pain and requires no treatment. On rare occasions it can be large enough to put pressure on nerves or erode bone to cause pain. Therefore i would have a physician tell you why you're having low back pain before you see a chiropractor. If the cyst is incidental like it most likely is, doing some traction is ok. ...Read more

Hi for past 5 months I have a sore throat and MRI revealed cyst in right maxillary sinus.Can this be the cause? Throat always have little pain

Not likely: Even though you might have a cyst in the sinus it will probably not cause a sore throat. The cyst should be seen by an ENT or oral surgeon but is likely to not be related. ...Read more
