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
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
MRI of lumbar spine showed regions of focal fatty replacement and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine and chronic wedge deformities. Should I worry?
Not too much: The area of fatty replacements and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine are not significant, and pose no future problem for you. However, the chronic wedge deformities may be due to prior trauma with injury to the vertebral bodies, or possible osteopenic compression fractures. Discuss with you doctor about possibly osteoporosis or other bone abnormality, and how to limit further injury. ...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

What is the prognosis for lumbar stenosis with bulging discs at l4/l5 and l3/l4 with spinal cord effacement and bilateral facet joint hypertrophy.
Mixed: Facet hypertrophy is a common change as people age; the amount of joint enlargement is more important than the fact that it is present. Stenosis is an issue if it is symptomatic. Weight control and exercise can help. Surgery can help in cases that don't respond to other treatment. The spinal cord usually ends at l1-2, so if it truly goes down to l5, there are other issues that need to be addressed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
