Mri Of Hip With Contrast
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
Is MR arthrography of the hip joint a fancy way of saying MRI of the hip with contrast media (Gadalinium)?
Many things: A radiologist looks at lymph nodes, the airway, blood vessels, glands, muscles, esophagus, upper lungs, bones, epiglottis, larynx, and a portion of the brain and sinuses. This test is ideal for evaluating cancer, infection, inflammation, enlarged lymph nodes, and trauma among other things. ...Read more
Can labrum tear (fray) be seen conclusively on MRI without contrast? How about during an arthroscopic surgery of shoulder? MRI with contrast needed?
MRI w/w/out Contrast: MRI uses magnetic fields to form images in the body and term with and without contrast comprises the series of films of the MRI. The study is performed with contrast in event there is need for specific differentiation of tumor from other structures, find smaller lesions, and see dynamic assessment of lesion (how active). ...Read more
Doubt it: If any irregularities in the intestinal wall were found, it would be just that, irregularities. Their presence would suggest a problem but the overlap with other possible conditions would make the information inconclusive. A normal study would also not rule out the condition. ...Read more
Does an abdominal CT scan with and without contrast have the same amount of radiation as two CT scans?
Yes: The ct scan will consist of at least 3 parts. A very low dose scan to show the anatomy and allow for planning of the full ct scan. The next scan is the "real" scan without contrast. Then there will be at least 1 scan with contrast, usually when the veins are most opacified, at about 70 seconds after the start of the injection. However, some contrast scans have multiple phases for some anatomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No contrast usually: Contrast is not usually given for an MRI of the knee. Many times, the knee has an effusion, which acts as a natural contrast agent for MRI. In complex situations, such as after surgery or when the patient's symptoms are more sever than expected by the Doctor, then contrast can be used either by venous injection or with an arthrogram. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hip MRI shows "chondrolabral separation" what does that mean? One hip has a paralabral cyst also but says soft tissues are in tact
Dettachment: It means that the labrum(structure located around the rim of the socked)has separated from itparalabral cyst are usually very common and indicates early degenerative changes of the labrum. ...Read more
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
My dad had a nuclear bone scan. Nuclear bone scan findings:
there are several focal areas of isotope accumulation in the region of the
sacroiliac joints bilaterally which correspond to lesions noted on the CT pelvis consistent with bony me
Possibly metastases: Nuclear bone scans usually demonstrate areas of increased bone metabolism, the bone reacting to a stimulus, such as tumor, fracture, infection, etc.Bone scan is very sensitive but not specific. Ct and MRI are cross sectional imaging that can more specifically identify the pathology and characterize the abnormalities on bone scan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
X-ray of your belly: Ct, or computed tomography is a special was of taking x-rays that allows up to see the body in slices. We use contrast, a type of x-ray dye, to better see blood vessels (iv contrast) and the GI tract (oral contrast). The abdomen covers from the diaphragms through the kidneys, and the pelvis covers from the hip bones to your upper thighs. They are done for mahy reasons, not just cancer staging. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CT Colongraphy: A special ct with bowel cleansing and gentle inflation of the colon can provide an excellent view of the inside of the colon. This specific protocol is called ct colonography, and not every imaging center or hospital can perform it well. Ask about special reviewing software, and how many ct colonographies performed per week. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mamagram sept 2012 ok. Have had chest CT with contrast..Chest xrays and multiple mris of spine. Would any of that reflected anything on shoulder mets?
What does 'diffuse severe attenuation of the left vertebral artery" mean on a neck ct scan with contrast?
Risk of stroke: Depending on age and other risks, this could be caused by arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), certain autoimmune diseases associated with arterial inflammation (arteritis), certain infections (e.g. syphilis), and other conditions. Whatever the cause, the person with this finding may be at high risk for stroke. Discuss with your doctor without delay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
