1.2cm right ovarian cyst which showed T1 & T2 hyperintense signal which persisted bright in T2FS sequence on MRI!! what is it? Please explain
The: Signal characteristics you describe suggest that the cyst is a hemorrhagic cyst, a cyst that has bled into itself. This is relatively common, and will generally resolve on its own. ...Read more
My scoliosis xrays show 3 neural foramen perineural nerve root sleeve cysts, 1 measuring 9mm l1-2, c7-t1, t1-t2, all are right sided. What are these?
Neural cysts: In most instances, these are benign (not cancer) expansions of the nerves, and they are typically seen as 'incidental findings' and often do not need treatment. They are typically not associated with pain, but if the doctor treating you -who probably looked at the imaging studies- is concerned, further work up is indicated with a gadolinium enhanced scan. Good luck! ...Read more
I have a 9mm cyst inside neural foramina at t1-t2 and my ring and pinky fingers are going numb a lot. I have to see a neurosurgeon- how will they fix?
How will they fix?: The first question is whether this "cyst" is actually causing your symptoms. What you describe could also be an ulnar neuropathy at the elbow. Has that been ruled out? The last thing you want is an unnecessary back operation that "fixes" nothing. A good surgeon is one who knows when NOT to operate. Stop trying to 2nd-guess the doctors & make sure your diagnosis is correct. That's key. ...Read more
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 facet block injections yesterday at T1-T2 (L) after I was initially told that the injections would be between t3-t4. My pain is stabbing me in the center of my back just below the scapula and above bra line. How long should I wait before complaining
Facet block T-spine: Schedule appointment now with doctor who did facet block. Seems to be misunderstanding about the location of the block you received, and this should be clarified. Also, if no relief or improvement after T1-T2 block, discuss this at same visit. Finally, ask for revised plan for managing this pain including clear follow-up. ...Read more

35 yo f w/rrms. Brain mris every 6 mo. Recent report: "t1&t2 hyperintensity, could be hemangioma in right frontal bone." do I need more testing?
If you have been having an MRI every 6 months, it's possible this hyperintensity showed up before, but was not reported. Sometimes small versions of this are missed during other tests.
Having another MRI in the future should be an adequate method to study this. If you have another MRI 6 months from now, that should be helpful enough. ...Read more
11/21/13 pain low l back runs down butt 2 leg. Mri last wk. Dr nxt wk 2 go over. Hard muscle or nerve where pain starts. T1/t2 hyperintense focus. Ms?
Wife's Mri of spine shows C2 C3 demonstrate T1 T2 bright signal along right lower aspect disc space. L3 small vertebral hemangimo. Minor facet hypertrophy at L4 L5 encroaching on the foramina. PLEASE explain these findings. Thank you Drs.
Some findings OK:
In general, small hemangiomas in vertebral bodies are not clinically significant, sort of like fingerprints.
Narrowed foramina from arthritis in the facets can be symptomatic and treated conservatively with anti inflammatories, steroid injections or rarely (sometimes micro) surgery.
Disc lesions with T1 and T2 abnormalities need to be seen to opine on. ...Read more

What could be a large ill defined bone lesion with prominent hypointensity on T1-weighted images and predom hyperintensity on t2? Can it cause ab pain
Radiologist: I would not expect a t2 lesion to cause abdominal distress. In these situations I feel your primary care physician should sit down and review the images with the radiologist who interpreted your study, ask the radiologist what possibilities could explain these findings and then ask him what further imaging studies, biopsy or referral to an appropriate specialist would be most helpful. Further study ...Read more
IrregulaR outline cyst hypointensity on t1 and hyperintensity on t2 with peripheral enhancement with IV contrast with no central enhancement means?
Is it possible to diagnose MS disease when a series of four MRIs w/wo contrast have shown no enhancing lesions? There are dark T1 corr. To bright T2.
Yes, it is: Possible. MS is also a clinical diagnosis based on non-MRI findings, sometimes the MRI is practically normal. MS lesions don't always enhance, in fact most don't. Early/active lesions may enhance. Do you have an established diagnosis of MS? There are a variety of causes of MRI white matter lesions, not just MS. The most common in your age group is chronic age-related microvascular changes. ...Read more
Focus of hyperintense t2 and t1 signal with suppress on the stir sequence in t2 veterbral suggestive of island of fatty marrow? Same as myleomalacia?
No: Myelomalacia is a term that is used to refer to the spinal cord itself. It refers to some degeneration of the spinal cord. What you are describing is in the bone of the vertebral body. This is a different condition. It may represent fatty marrow-usually a benign variant. ...Read more

MRI+C done on 23rd day of cycle. Smooth T1 hypo and hyperintense T2 with 2.5x1.8cm in size. No abnormal enhancing focus seen? It was past ovulation time
My MRI report says I have 2.2x2.3 CM t1 hyperintense, t2 hypointense cyst in right ovary, among other things, what does this mean?
Hemorrhagic cyst: This sounds like a hemorrhagic cyst. It needs to be followed up in 2-3 months (usu. By pelvic ultrasound) to make sure it goes away. These cysts are nothing to worry about. They may cause pain on the side that they are on and should go away without any treatment. It is important however to make sure that's what it is and that a follow-up ultrasound is done to make sure it goes away. ...Read more
What does ovarian cyst with hypointense signal intensity on t1 and hyperintense signal intensity on t2 with peripheral enhancement means?
Hypointense: Signal on T1 and hyperintense signal on T2 are just the signal characteristics of fluid (as in a cyst). The significance of the peripheral enhancement would depend on the characteristics of the enhancement: very thin rim not very worrisome, thick irregular peripheral enhancement more concerning. ...Read more
