Would calcification of the soft tissues show clearly on xray, or mri, for example stiffness in thoracic spine due to spondylitis?
Usually but always: Calcifications will show up on x-ray if there is enough of them. MRI doesn't show calcifications well. In the case of spondylitis, depending on the cause, there could bone erosions (loss of calcification), no calcifcation or abnormal calcificaion. A radiologist is trained to look for these things especially if spondylitis is listed in the diagnosis. ...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

Bony : Bony metastatic disease refers to cancer that has spread from another site to the bone, commonly called mets; (according to this report the mets are found in the right hip (right iliac) and left fifth rib).

Can a neck MRI with contrast show any malignant lymph nodes near collarbone or where posterior neck joins the shoulder?
Yes and no : An MRI can do many things, like show if you have enlarged lymph nodes - however in order to determine if they are benign or malignant you would need a biopsy of the tissue in question. I will often order an ultrasound first when evaluating lumps in the neck, and only order MRI if the ultrasound is inconclusive or unable to do needle biopsy. ...Read more
MRI lumbar spine for pain result said Small paraspinal soft tissue. What does that mean? Thoracic said normal paraspinal soft tissue.
Might be an error.: Sometimes, radiology reports have typographical errors in them. "Small paraspinal soft tissue" doesn't make a lot of medical sense, unless your muscles are small because you have small stature or not much muscle mass. It's possible that the report is missing a word or phrase describing some "small" finding. If you would like a second opinion on the MRI, let me know. ...Read more
