Doctor insights on: Subtle T2 Hyper Intense Subcortical Lesions Within The Bilateral High Convexities Without Corpus Callousness Involvement

Share

Callous (Definition)

Callus is a noun meaning a localized thickening of the skin, and a verb meaning to form that skin thickening (especially on the palm of a hand or the sole of a foot, caused by repeated pressure or friction). Callous has a meaning related to callus, but callous is not used to describe skin. As an adjective, it means toughened or unfeeling. As a verb, it means to make or ...Read more

What does my mri results mean by there are a few scattered patchy t2/flair hyperintense lesions in both deep and superficial subcortical white matter?

What does my mri results mean by there are a few scattered patchy t2/flair hyperintense lesions in both deep and superficial subcortical white matter?

Ask referring doc: Even if your pictures look exactly like the one here (scattered T2 abnormalities in a woman of your age), you still wouldn't have an answer without further Dr's. exam and a detailed history. You likely had some reason to have the study done and that reason is very important to establishing a diagnosis. Sorry I can't put your mind at ease. You will need a neurologist to sort it out. ...Read more

Are Few tiny scattered nonenhancing T2/T2 FLAIR hyperintensities involving periventricular/ subcortical Zones supratentorial compartment bilat normal?

MRI: You can talk to your doctor about what this finding means in the context of your clinical picture, but usually what you are describing is an incidental, age-related finding that is probably of not much concern. ...Read more

Son had MRI results of: irregular t2 and flair hyperintensity along the left aspect of the body of the corpus callosum. What does this mean?

Many things: This could be a million things. If this is the only finding, this may represent "gliosis", which is scarring in the brain. Children can have strokes in utero. His age makes ms unlikely. They may want to follow up on regular basis if there is any concern for a low grade tumor. In the end, his neurologist who will have seen the images, and your son, will be your guide on what this means. ...Read more

Few Scattered 2-3 mm T2 Hyperintense non-specific supratentorial foci involving subcortical white matter. This was my MRI impression. Please explain?

Nonspecific: Nonspecific findings are nonspecific. Small whilte mater lesions are common and can be due to local ischemia (lack of blood flow) or inflammation or small infarcts. In the absence of clinical findings they are likely nothing to worry about. What was the reason for your MRI? If vasculitis or M.S is a concern, your doctors will followup and you should get repeat MRI. ...Read more

Mild periventricular and subcortical abnormal T2 and FLAIR signal is nonspecific, but likely representative of chronic microvascular disease?

Mild periventricular and subcortical abnormal T2 and FLAIR signal is nonspecific, but likely representative of chronic microvascular disease?

Need clarification.: Tiny white matter spots like these can be due to small vessel vascular insufficiency, as mentioned, as well as conditions like multiple sclerosis and Lyme disease. Or they can have no specific cause at all. But in a young person like yourself, a good examination and testing would be in order. ...Read more

What does Mild periventricular and subcortical abnormal T2 andsparing posterior fossa and brainstem mean on mri?

What does Mild periventricular and subcortical abnormal T2 andsparing posterior fossa and brainstem mean on mri?

Nonspecific: Sometimes there are some changes or abnormal signal that we see on MRI in the deeper parts of the brain called the "white matter" that show up on an MRI scan. These changes can be non-specific meaning not diagnostic of any particular diseases or related to narrowing of small vessels or sometimes due to diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Happy to review the MRI through a virtual consult. Best! ...Read more

Just got my MRI report. It says multiple (greater than 25) small abnormal T2/flair signal throughout the periventricular deep and subcortical whitemat?

There are a: Number of causes of white matter lesions, impossible to make a determination based solely on the fact that they are there. Your doctor needs to correlate the size/distribution/number of lesions in the context of your clinical picture. Various possibilities include demyelinating processes (e.g. MS), vasculitides, and inflammatory/infectious processes (e.g. Lyme disease). ...Read more

Explain: Minimal punctate FLAIR/T2 hyperintensities are present in the subcortical & deep white matter of the cerebral hemispheres. (Otherwise normal)?

Here goes: I am unaware of why you required an MRI of brain, but the described lesions could be present due to migraine, prior head trauma, smoking, prior infections, even MS, but the description is not the common pattern.

I have had a MRI for migraines what does the results mean multiple punctate t2 hypertintense foci in subcortical white matter bilaterally?

Probably migraines: Small vessel disease, and migraines can cause multiple areas of small ischemia, and even infarction, in these regions. Unfortunately, without seeing the mri, it is difficult to interpret. Wording by radiologists can vary, and other more worrisome diagnoses could also have a similar wording. A good neuroradiologist, or at least visual inspection by a neurologist would be prudent. ...Read more

What does mulitple (atlest 10)tiny t2/flair hyperintense foci in cerebral white matter, predominantly subcortical and deep white matter implies?

See your doctor: Hyperintense white matter signals may mean nothing clinically or could be related to a host of diagnoses, including multiple sclerosis, autoimmune, etc. It has to be correlated to an exam and other testing to make any sense of it, a lot of times it is an incidental finding and means very little clinically. Your doctor will help you understand what this report means to you clinically. ...Read more

No: Those t2 signals are often incidental findings. They are more common in migraine patients and patients with higher blood pressure. 2 tiny t2 lesions alone are not sufficient to diagnose multiple sclerosis. The MRI needs to be seen in conjunction with the clinical picture. Why did you get the mri? ...Read more

My 15yr old daughter just had an MRI - it shows a couple punctate T2 hyperintense foci in the subcortical white matter any ideas on what this means?

Yes, but none that: Are helpful to you or your daughter without the history of the illness that prompted the study, her past medical history (possibly from prenatal records on), the clinical findings of her physical & neurological exams & the results of all pertinent lab studies. Seek a meaningful interpretation from a neurologist who has this information + a copy of the MRI to review with both of you. ...Read more

Think more clearly: The MRI isn't the patient; you are. You didn't just wander into an MRI facility & make an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the MRI, for a reason. It's his/her obligation to discuss the test result with you & correlate the facts of the case to draw a conclusion, which will likely be that the MRI finding is not clinically significant. A test is a test, & you are you. Not the same things at all. ...Read more

Vascular issue: This is not completely clear. This sounds vascular, and I suspect more likely arterial or venous. Your description does not help clarify the distinction. Things to consider is the fact that you're on estrogen, which can have vascular affects and can't even come what times, but I'm not ready to make that diagnosis. You can ask your position whether this can be related to your Crohn's or the therapy ...Read more

Bone growth possible: Yes. I believe you are speaking of a callus beneath the 3rd metattarsal. Bone re-growth is possible after surgery. An x-ray should be taken to see the orientation of the lengths of mets 2 and 4, with respect to the 3rd. If the 3rd metatarsal is longer than the second, it will bear more weight causinf a callus beneath it. An accommodative orthotic can be fabricate to alleviate this problem. ...Read more
