Will an MRI of aorta show the aorta in a more detailed way than the other structures shown in the pic taken from the MRI or is the whole pic just same?
Will a CT of the abdomen and pelvis show imaging of the hips, specifically, if there is something compressing a nerve in the hips?
An Abd/pelvis CT: likely includes at least partial visualization of the hips, and could potentially detect some abnormalities in that region. However, since the exam was not specifically tailored to look at the hips, and moreover CT is not usually the study of choice to evaluate the hips(MRI is), I wouldn't rely on a pelvic CT to rule out hip abnormalities. ...Read more
Yes: Mri of the spine is the best way to visualize a ruptured disc. Remember "ruptured disc" is a generic term for when the gelatinous center/nucleus of the disc gets squeezed out through an opening in the annulus. A good quality MRI will pick this up. However, some of the findings on an MRI might be more subtle such as a dark disc or an annular tear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does a MRI show the back of knee? Is the meniscus located in the back of the knee? How accurate is a mri?
Good test: Mri does see the back of the knee and some problems, such as popliteal cysts, can cause pain there. The posterior horns of the menisci are also at the back of the knee and MRI can assess meniscal problems very well. For best results, make sure a radiologist with fellowship training in musculoskeletal imaging is interpreting the study. ...Read more
Spine or ENT spaces: Mri of the neck could mean a study of the cervical spine, and therefore would show disc herniations, vertebral problems and spinal cord problems. It could also mean a study of the anterior spaces of the neck, in which case it will show any problems with the soft tissues, i.E cancer, infection and congenital anomalies. ...Read more
Very Variable: It may not be detectable on an x-ray or could mimic another process like an infection or trauma. 2 classic presentations are called blastic or lytic- blastic appearance is when the region affected appears denser and lytic is when the affected region looks as if someone took n eraser to the area ; looks less dense. There are other image studies such as a bone scan or MRI that can help deliniate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: There are differences in techniques between the ct scan with a pet scan and a general ct scan. Additionally, radiologists may measure a nodule slightly differently. Please look at a ruler and realize just how small 1 mm is. Radiologists routinely are measuring things less than 1 cm or about 3/8 of an inch. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

MRI guidelines : Mri of brain and spinal cord may show areas of abnormal signal which are consistent with ms but must be taken in the context of the individual's clinical course, objective findings on the neurological exam, and no better explanation forthcoming. Ms diagnosis can be supported by MRI findings, often with additional support from spinal fluid abnormalities consistent with the diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
