Mri (Definition)

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

Gynecologist: It is important to see a gynecologist so that a treatment plan can be created. A large complex ovarian mass needs evaluation and surgical treatment may be warranted. There are many possible causes of ovarian masses. Most are benign but some are not therefor prompt evaluation is needed. An ovarian mass is not likely to be related to post tubal ablation syndrome ...Read more

May have to remove i: Complex ovarian cysts require closer monitoring and consideration of removal if they grow in size. The size is still not big enough to chase it and remove it right now. But an interval re-evaluation in 2-3 months will help to determine if it is increasing in size or not. If it grows over 6 months and the size is bigger than 6-7 cm, i would recommend surgical removal. But also get a ca125 level do. ...Read more

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

MRI findings: Uterine fibroids can appear as dense masses on MRI, or increase in density in the layers of the uterine muscle. Ovarian cysts are often fluid filled but also can be solid masses on MRI. I would ask your health care provider or the radiologist to interpret these findings rather than trying to identify these conditions yourself as there appearance on scans are not always the same. ...Read more

18 year old dtr has a 3.4 CM rt ovarian dermoid cyst (mri dx). First gyn will only salvage part of ovary if she does laparotomy. Second dr said laparoscopy- spillage not an issue. How to decide?

18 year old dtr has a 3.4 CM rt ovarian dermoid cyst (mri dx).  First gyn will only salvage part of ovary if she does laparotomy. Second dr said laparoscopy- spillage not an issue. How to decide?

Third opinion : This is a small enough cyst that laparoscopy should be successful. U need to find out how many procedures they do laparoscopically - more the better. Also ask about complication rate. U have to b comfortable with ur surgeon and it doesn't sound like you r at this time. Having one more option might ease ur mind. Try to find someone who does lots of laparoscopy. Good luck. ...Read more

4-5cm ovarian cyst appeared 3 months after cyst removal. MRI a month later showed there's nothing significant. Do I repeat this? Having another pain

4-5cm ovarian cyst appeared 3 months after cyst removal. MRI a month later showed there's nothing significant. Do I repeat this? Having another pain

Probably not: Ovarian cysts at your age are very common. They can enlarge, regress, and rupture - which can cause pain. Your pain may also be related to your cycles. You can also follow ovarian cysts under ultrasound which may be faster and easier than MRI. ...Read more

An MRI of the spine showed a 5.9cm ovarian cyst . I had a Partial Hysterectomy 25 years ago. Should I be concerned I'm 50 years old.

Need eval by Gyn onc: It would be wise to have a pelvic ultrasound , consult a Gyn oncologist and have your ovarian cyst evaluated further. Ultimately, either exploratory laparoscopic surgery or laparotomic oophorectomy may be needed to make a definitive diagnosis. Unfortunately there is no other accurate and reliable way to reassure you that your ovarian cyst is benign, even though most ovarian cysts are . ...Read more

3.2x2.8cm complex ovarian cyst didn't show on us but did on MRI 1wk later. Does this mean it grew that fast between the tests? Terrified of cancer!

1.2cm ovarian cyst with T1&T2 hyperintense signals which persisted bright in T2FS seq on MRI.can it be endmeriosis or anything besides hemorhegic cyst?

1.2cm ovarian cyst with T1&T2 hyperintense signals which persisted bright in T2FS seq on MRI.can it be endmeriosis or anything besides hemorhegic cyst?

Endometriosis: could also manifest as cysts with hemorrhagic internal contents. However, usually there are other findings, not just a solitary cyst. Sometimes a cyst with internal proteinaceous content could cause the signal characteristics you describe. However, the vast majority of the time, the cyst you describe is simply a functional hemorrhagic cyst. ...Read more

I had a MRI done of pelvis it says I have bilateral ovarian cysts 2.7cm and 2.9 CM also shows I have a proximal iliac node 1.7 CM what should I do?

See a doctor.: Ovarian cysts are common. One single mildly enlarged pelvic lymph node is nonspecific. Your doctor may elect to follow up the cyst to see if they would resolve on their own over 2-3 menstrual cycles. They may come and go. See your doctor for check up of the rest of your body to see if there are other enlarged lymph nodes. ...Read more

I recently had a MRI on my hips which shows mildly complex heterogeneous ovarian cyst and presence of free fluid within the pelvis How serious is this

Hard to say: It is hard to say since there are many different causes of these findings. The first thing recommended should be a pelvic ultrasound with doppler flow studies.The cyst can be a functional cyst with hemorragh (caused by the function of the ovary-ovulation),an endometrioma, a cystic teratoma or dermoid, or a cancer. The doppler flow will be increased if it is cancer. ...Read more
