Mri Shows Flow Voids Are Shown In The Basilar And Internal Carotid As Well As Large Posterior Dural Sinuses
Having mri/mra of neck, carotid, and posterior fossa - will it show masses in the cerebellopontine angle, jugular, vagal, vestibular schwanommas, etc?
Head and Neck Masses: Mri uses large magnets to create images of possible masses. Mri is a related technology that images blood vessels to look for blockages or aneurysms (ballooning). While there are some more specialized tests to look at certain areas, in general, the answer to your question is yes. ...Read more
Sinuses are air filled spaces in the head that have several proposed functions: 1. They serve as shock absorbers in cases of head trauma 2. Lighten the skull 3. Humidify and filter the air while also producing mucus 4. Play a role in vocal resonance. The head contains 4 paired sinus cavities: maxillaries (cheek) under the eyes, ethmoids(between the eyes), frontals (above ...Read more
Ct scan shows increases attenuation of the mediastinal fat in the anterior mediastinum as well as lateral and inferior to aortic ach. Nonspecific?
I need help interpreting concerning parts of MRI resultsThe bodies of the lateral ventricles are dilated but stable when compared to prior study. There are slight chronic vascular changes in the
centrum semiovale which are stable since previous study?
Need symptoms..: What symptoms prompted the MRI? Without knowledge of MRI, any report is meaningless. The ventricles are the fluid-filled cushions inside the brain; they seem to be enlarged (loss of brain matter) but the same size as before. Centrum semiovale is the deep white matter- loss of brain here usually due to high blood pressure & diabetes. It can lead to dementia (vascular dementia). Ask your Radiologist ...Read more
If this showed on MRI with symptoms of IIH but no high opening pressure what could it be?
Small arachnoid granulation in the superior Sagittal sinus & non specific bilateral short segment narrowing of the dural venous sinuses between the transverse &
Spondylosis and stenosis as well as encroachment on intervertebral foramina at c5/c6 and c6/c7 levels w/ significant cord edema with narrowing most prominent in the saggital diameter. Do i need surg ?
Paraophthalmic aneurysm the same as carotid artery in the brain? Are more risks associated if the carotid artery is coiled like visual disturbances?
What does this mean: flow void is identified in major intracerebral blood vessels. Small prominent perivascular spaces in inferior basal ganglia bil?
MRI also shows vertebral artery flow not well visualized may be markedly diminutive.sten/rev of flow/occ less likely .CTA if indicated. ?
What does it mean "Normal vascular flow voids are present in the distal carotid and vertebral arteries, the
basilar artery and the proximal anterior, ?
On a brain MRI whay does "expected signal voids are seen in the intracranial vessels at skull base"? Is that bad? Neuro said MRI was unremarkable.
Mri: sagittal t2 & flair imag, altho less well seen in the axial plane, is increas signal wthin c5-c6 cervical cord, perhaps an area of myelomalacia, ?
Myelomalacia: That means that there may or may not be an area of subtle change which may represent myelomalacia in your cervical spine at the c5/6 location. Myelomalacia if present can signify injury that is ongoing or had been there in the past. Only a history and neurological exam can determine if this 'finding' (if any is actually there) is of any clinical relevance. Please be evaluated by a spine surgeon. ...Read more
Can MRI/X-RAY of the arm miss a small sarcoma? Both show normal, no mass,fluid build up,aneurysm, or vascular malformation in area & vessels. Now what
Following an ischemic stroke would the dead area eventually appear with the same density as CSF on a CT scan?
CT Scan - Prominence of the external and common iliac veins, femoral and IVC. IVC measures upto 3.6cm. Why is this considered significant? Pain/nausea
What does ct scan results mean?
large amount of colonic stool
confirm moderate amount of free peritoneal air as well as air in the anterior wall and the retro peritoneum.
The study was with IV contrast only.
Prob not good.: The large amount of stool in the colon is not necessarily abnormal BUT, air in the abdomen means the bowel has had a leakage OR it is post surgery. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, if there isnt surgery, a burst bowel is often fatal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A MRI showed a 4.5mm cystic focus on on T2-weighted image12 in the region of the tectum on the left. The report also states of a mild increased FLAIR signal within this region as well as within the adjacent peri-aqueductal gray matter on FLAIR images 11
And the question?: That is incomplete information though I understand WHAT is being said. You can't draw conclusions unless you tell me what your symptoms are and how they've evolved. Why the MRI of the head? Any contrast given? Other tests you've had in blood, etc.? If you'd like to visit with me please make an appointment at: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi and use Key Code: PDXFNR as directed. Bring report or images. ...Read more
Yes: Arteries and veins are both seen on non contrast studies also depends on how study is done ...Read more
There are no hyperechoic areas within the anterior and posterior walls of the carotid arteries, What does this mean?

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
