From an MRI or brain report it says major vascular flow voids are present. What does that mean?

From an MRI or brain report it says major vascular flow voids are present. What does that mean?

It is a: normal appearance for the vessels to have "flow voids" on routine MRI....the moving blood does not generate an MRI signal due to the physics involved. So what you are reporting is a description of a completely normal finding. No need to worry. ...Read more

Just had a MRI on brain it says I have a venous differential adnormality in opptiucal lobe what could this mean not there 8months ago?

Just had a MRI on brain it says I have a venous differential adnormality in opptiucal lobe what could this mean not there 8months ago?

My guess: My guess is a "developmental venous anomaly of the occipital lobe". If that is the case, then it is an abnormality of a vein in the brain which frequently is an incidental finding. Best of luck, Dr. Ayman Omar ...Read more

Had MRI on brain one year ago. Results normal. Should i still be concerned about a brain tumour?

Had MRI on brain one year ago. Results normal. Should i still be concerned about a brain tumour?

Almost certainly not: But depends on why you got the MRI in the first place, and whether they did an adequate examination. Most commonly if you were having symptoms like headache, nausea, or other neurologic symptoms and the MRI showed nothing then a hidden brain tumor is unlikely. Rarely, with a poor quality examination a non enhancing tumor can be missed but this is very uncommon. ...Read more

Can many lesions on an MRI of brain indicate previous stroke or other causes?

Can many lesions on an MRI of brain indicate previous stroke or other causes?

Probably not stroke: Multiple small areas of signal abnormality in the brain can result from many things. In older patients or patients with risk factors like high blood pressure or diabetes, these often do indicate previous strokes. This would be very uncommon in a 30 yo. Multiple "lesions" are usually nonspecific and can result from migraines, demyelinating disease (ms) or autoimmune conditions among other things. ...Read more

Will an MRI on brain without contrast show if there is inflammation from meningitis?

Will an MRI on brain without contrast show if there is inflammation from meningitis?

Not necessarily.: Bacterial meningitis is a devastating disease that must be caught early to prevent permanent damage or even death. In the beginning stages the only way to make the diagnosis is with a lumbar puncture commonly called a spinal tap. Neuro imaging studies are useful to monitor for complications such as abscesses and brain swelling and can pick up meningitis later in the disease process. ...Read more

Mri (Definition)

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
