Open Mri Obese Man
I'm having bad hip pain. Went to my Dr and got some XRays which came back normal(?!) I am obese, what is better: MRI or CT
Neither...Stop relyi: From d sounds if it, u probably have a strain of the tensor fascia lata, causing a condition called iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS). THERE IS NO IMAGING TEST THAT CAN DIAGNOSE THIS CONDITION but it's the most common cause of hip pain in obese middle-aged people. Pts have been fooled into thinking MRIs can diagnose everything. Spare urself the aggrav - go c a qualified doc or use HealthTp Prime! ...Read more
The definition started with Louis Israel Dublin, chief statistician of the Metropolitan life insurance company, in the early 1940s, as a BMI >25 (definitely >30) for people in their 20's based on retrospective observational life insurance data of the age at which people died later in life. This was subsequently adopted by the medical disease industry. However, BMI is ...Read more
Obese female-42y-tennis ball size lump on lft hip-painful; ultra-sound=normal tissue; mri=inflammed tissue, no mass of collecting fluid. Next step is?
Excise it: You can go to a surgeon, either a general or orthopaedic surgeon, and have it excised if it is really bothering you. Sounds like it is a benign lesion and nothing that has to be excised; however, if it bothers you enough, your next step is to remove it surgically. ...Read more

High risk?: My guess is that you think you are at high risk because of sexual practices, HIV, or HPV infection or another reason. Even if treated for HIV, risk is about 1.3%/year; small but worrisome. Expert in anal disease could do high resolution anoscopy and cytology to screen for disease not visible with tests you mentioned. Screening is not perfect. If negative, check back with MD periodically. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can lung cancer cause back pain? My MRI of upper back is ok. Ct chest clear. Am obese and heavy chested? Pain almost one year now
No: Open MRI machines are limited in the strength of the field they can attain (0.25-0.75 tesla). The image resolution ("quality") is dependent on the strength of the field. Closed units can go up to 3 tesla (actually more, but not common in most hospitals) and give much better images. The better the image, the more accurate the findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Child has jra and her jaw pops almost everytime she opens it but MRI was normal so what else could be wrong? What do I do now?
Jaw popping is often: Related to a displaced jaw joint disk. Bite problems & jaw muscle issues can affect the proper coordinated position of the disk & the jaw condyle "pops" over the misplaced disk. Hopeful that jra has not affected the joint, seek consult w a dentist that is well trained in bite and muscle problems. Look for one who studied with the pankey institute or the peter dawson group. Splint might help! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
