Normal Spinal Mri
Cervical spine MRI showed normal spine curvature but straight spinal cord that didn't follow spinal curve. What is this?
Normal: The cord does not travel exactly as the bony architecture does. This is likely more of a comment by the radiologist rather than any real pathology. ...Read more
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
Spinal vs. MRI: These are different types of tests looking for different types of information. WE don't even know what the symptoms or the working diagnosis were. ...Read more

Call your doctor: Your doctor who has the complete report and who has examined you can give you more information. You have a herniated disc which may be putting some pressure on the nerve. Your doctor can give you more information and recommendation for treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
My lumber spine MRI shows conus medullaris terminates at lower L2 . Is it normal or low lying conus medullaris? Signal morphology is normal though.
LLegNumbnes, xray n MRI of back show no nerve pressing, showed hemogliates, MRI w/out brain shows Few foci flair hypersensitivity 2 month MRI with c?
Leg numbness: I am not sure what you mean by the term hemogliates in reference to the MRI of the lumbar spine. Also, the brain MRI study is nonspecific in regard to the location of hyperintense foci. Discuss the MRI findings with your neurologist to determine if they have clinical relevance. ...Read more
Mri scan showed I have some mild spondylotic changes within vertebral column itself c4/5 c5/6 without nerve root impingement what would cause this?
Trauma, use.: The more a joint is used, and the greater the forces on it, the more it becomes worn, even in younger people. This is why overweight persons often have knee or hip problems. Trauma to a joint, perhaps not severe, can increase the rate of this degeneration. The cervical spine has many types of joints, to allow us to move our heads as we do, and they can degenerate too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Neurologist said i had mult cerv and lumb radiculopathies but mri only showed thoracic bulges. Abnormal arm ncs emg for pinched nerves Should i Worry?
Not if you are OK: If you do not have any symptoms, then no worry. However, the reason why you got MRI of the entire spine and ENG/NCV must be because you have pain and numbness probably of your entire body. You can have radiculopathies in the absence of disc bulge/herniation. However, having multiple cervical and lumbar radiculopathies without any disc problems means you have something else going on. Keep looking. ...Read more
Prominent disc space narrowing, bulges, and mild degenerative changes throughout lumbar spine for some years. Spinal decompression? Best opinions pls!
Spinal decompression: Remember, any changes that occur with traction are temporary. Once normal weight bearing is restored, all changes revert to pre-traction state. Inversion tables do exactly the same thing for about $250 total vs. Around $200 per treatment with traction. So if it feels good, it sure beats popping pills! consider a mckenzie pt, or pilates/yoga/piyo as preventative. And don't smoke--accelerates ddd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does this mean CT spine scan: disc narrowing, spur formation c6-7.Variable degrees of uncovertebral facet hypertrophy. No spondylolisthesis ect.
Structural changes: With a history of neck injury in 2007, the ct results most likely describe the changes in your spine since the accident. It will be useful to compare your scan to previous studies, looking for deterioration. Check with your doctor to see if the ct changes are old or new, and whether further evaluation or treatment is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
