Coronary arteries?: 59yo female reports chest pain with exercise. Physicians generally rule out the most worrisome pathology ascribed to symptoms patients report. Before all other considerations, a 59yo women with chest pain upon exercise needs an in-depth evaluation for angina pectoris and coronary artery disease. If a workup is negative, then consult with an Osteopath. These symptoms require expeditious evaluation. ...Read more

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

Severe pain after a MRI arthrography on my hip. Take aspirin?

Severe pain after a MRI arthrography on my hip. Take aspirin?

Not unusual: An MRI arthrogram is preformed usually injecting gadolinium and iodinated contrast. One could have allergy reaction to either. Pain after this study is rarely sever. Talk to doctor who did the study. Infection or blood in the joint could produce pain. Rather than taking a pain med do not overlook the possibility of an adverse reaction. If clear for adverse reaction any mild pain medicate is ok. ...Read more

Had arthrography MRI on my shoulder today and im having severe pain. Should u take pain meds?

Yes and No: You should not use any narcotic medication for joint pain related to arthrograms. NSAID such as motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen) may help. I think that joint pains related to the arthrogram can in part be related to a patient's sensitivity to one or more of the drugs used in the study, but not an allergy as such. Many of my patients get good relief with adding 25 mg of benedryl orally with the NSAID. ...Read more

Is MR arthrography of the hip joint a fancy way of saying MRI of the hip with contrast media (Gadalinium)?

Is MR arthrography of the hip joint a fancy way of saying MRI of the hip with contrast media (Gadalinium)?

Yes and no.: A standard MRI with contrast usually implies an intravenous injection of gadolinium. An MRI arthrogram means that the contrast is injected directly into the joint space, usually with fluoroscopic guidance of the needle. ...Read more

Using a Tesla 3 MRI s it possible to have a normal MRI of hip and then in the same session have a MR-guided MR arthrography of the hip joint?

Yes: Yes you can have both. MRI contrast is injected into hip joint and MRI repeated. Theory being that if MRI without contrast revealed the problem no further testing needed. If it was normal a repeat MRI with contrast in joint may show abnormalities not seen on the first study without contrast. (Gadalinium) ...Read more

I am suffering with severe pain in my hips for last 5 yrs, have hla b27 positive. Mri was okay. Please advice?

AS: Ankylosing spondylitis is of concern. A plain x-ray of the sacroiliac joints would pick up images of bone sclerosis better than an mri. A rheumatologist can discern and advise. Traumatic injury to the sacroiliac joints is a consideration. Has there been participation in extreme sports? An osteopath can evaluate injury to the sacroiliac joints. ...Read more

How likely am I to be diagnosed with ms? I originally went to the doctor for numbness and tingling in my hand and foot and have gotten severe pain in my opposite arm and hip on two occasions. One white spot was found on my brain mri, minor degenerative c

How likely am I to be diagnosed with ms? I originally went to the doctor for numbness and tingling in my hand and foot and have gotten severe pain in my opposite arm and hip on two occasions. One white spot was found on my brain mri, minor degenerative c

Hard to say: One white spot on brain MRI is nonspecific. If it is in a particular area (corpus callosum) it would be more concerning, otherwise it could have been from prior brain infection (encephalitis) or trauma (shearing injury). Your symptoms are a bit more worrisome. Perhaps a spinal fluid analysis will help. Neurology consult would be useful. ...Read more

Hip pain. My last MRI was an arthrogram. I had also had a theraputic injection done with short term relief. My previous injection from lasted 13 mo.?

Tough decisions: Hip arthroscopy is in its infancy, and we do not have long term studies on patients that we have repaired. Therefore, each hip case needs to be individualized with a surgeon that you trust and have a good rapport with. There are few clear cut answers. ...Read more

How do a regular hip MRI and an arthrogram of the hip differ?

How do a regular hip MRI and an arthrogram of the hip differ?

More complex study.: I assume you mean an MRI of the hip compared to an MRI of the hip with an arthrogram. Both studies include an MRI of the hip. The study with an arthrogram helps to better visualize the labral and articular cartilage about the hip. Along with an arthrogram, additional medication is placed into the hip joint, which can help determine if your hip pain is inside the joint and capsule or outside. ...Read more

MRI ARTHROGRAM LEFT HIP ; A very small subchondral cyst was noted along the lateral roof of the right acetabulum What does this mean?

Early DJD: Subchondral cysts mean cysts in the bone underneath the cartilage, and are a reaction of the bone to degenerative and stress related changes about the joint space. These are usually seen with some cartilage damage and narrowing of the joint space adjacent to the cyst. Many people are asymptomatic with small cysts. ...Read more

I had an MRI of my right hip with arthrogram to diagnose labral tear and radiologist said dye went to lymph nodes quickly. Why would this happen?

Inflammation: Assuming that the arthrogram was done correctly, and contrast placed into the joint space, then heart rate and motion will not affect uptake. The contrast placed into the joint space gets absorbed by turnover of the joint fluid with uptake into the lymphatic system, and then flows into the blood vessels. Contrast outside of the joint gets absorbed directly by the blood vessels, and usually not... ...Read more

Achy shoulders and hips. Especially at night. I take simvastatin, B6, and aspirin 81 MG at night. Could it be from the statin?

Achy shoulders and hips. Especially at night. I take simvastatin, B6, and aspirin 81 MG at night. Could it be from the statin?

Could be: Statins are known to cause Myalgias aka muscle pain. Usually cause in the larger muscles for example quadriceps or upper extremity.
- If you have been on a statin for a while it is less likely for this to be the culprit
- stopping the medications for 2 weeks and see how you do is the way to approach this
