Can colon tumors be seen on a lumbar spine mri?

Not really

Colon
it is windowed to focus on the lumbar spine so you don't really appropriately visualize the colon on the lumbar spine MRI. This particular study is not a good study at all to evaluate the colon. To properly evaluate the colon, ask your doctor to inform you on what study is needed to properly visualize the colon.

Mri shows a fluid build up in lumbar spine, what to do?

Fluid build up??

Lumbar
Would need more info - not sure what fluid "build up" means - we would need to look at your MRI to see exactly what's going on.

Dr. Anthony Filly answered:

Lumbar spine MRI says epidural fat attenuation. What is this??

Not sure

Mri
Epidural fat is common and it can get thickened. We call this epidural lipomatosis and it can narrow the spinal canal where the nerve roots run. It is somewhat controversial as to whether this is clinically significant.

What is a black spot on an mri image? Gas? (Mri of lumbar spine)

Gas or calcification

Dark spots ( low signal intensity) can be many things depending on location and MRI pulse sequence. The most common reasons would be gas or calcification on a spine MRI.

Dr. Paul Sucgang answered:

How long will an MRI with and without contrast take for the area of the brain, cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine?

MRI Time

Mri
The actual procedure for the MRI could take up to approx 45 minutes for each level. A CT scan takes less time but does expose you to radiation. The MRI does not expose you to radiation.

Had MRI on lumbar spine, tarlov cyst found. Severe lower back and r leg pain. What q should I ask the doctor tomorrow?

Leg pain

Mri
Tarlov cysts a commonly seen on MRIs. They often do not cause pain. Typically there is something else going on that causes pain such as a disc or arthritis pinching a nerve-which is a good question for your doc.
