Subtle T2 Hyper Intense Subcortical Lesions Within The Bilateral High Convexities Without Corpus Callousness Involvement
Mri spine done and it read 10 mm t2 hyperintense, t1 hypo intense lesion in the inferior aspect of spleen. May represent cyst or hemanginoma.Concern?
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

SEE NEUROLOGIST: There are several possible causes, and these include arteritis/vasculitis, multiple sclerosis, lyme disease, sjogren's, etc. Spinal fluid analysis may be necessary. Get diagnosed asap, and start treatment without delay. Changing your diet will not help this, you need medical care. We have loads of therapies to reverse and/or control all of this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Focal lesion mid brain tegmentum on the right side involving the periaqueductal region and tectal plate,t2 flair images in mid brain.
How serious is ?
Some comments: Cannot interpret the exact nature of your lesion from your description, but would certainly have an experienced neurosurgeon evaluate. Could well be a benign chronic lesion, which may have been present for years, but regardless, get this addressed and treated, so you can feel better about this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI report....multiple nonspecific small subcortical foci of T2 prolongation in the left cerebrum. I'm 43 and started having migraine with aura at 41.
Result for my brain MRI -asymmetric decreased attenuation in the left basal ganglia, variant dilated perivascular spaces or punctate chronic lacune. ?
MRI report: This is language used in radiology to describe what they see. Ordinarily, they cannot distinguish a small stroke (lacune) from a perivascular space. A "puntate lacune" though is very small. It is probably just the side view of a blood vessel (aka perivascular). Do you smoke? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have diabetes mellitus? Atrial fibrillation? These are stroke risk factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Subcortical foci of increased signal are present suggestive of some sclerosis and marrow reactive changes in the left hip joint. There is a subcortical cyst in the acetabulum on the right hip measuring 5 mm - what does this mean?
What medication can be used to build the brain tissue, report says there is evidence of poorly defined area of altered signal intensity seen involving left frontal lobe displayed hyperintense signal on T2W and flair images suggestive of infarct. ?
None: Presumably you didn't just wander into an MRI facility & make an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the MRI for a reason. An MRI is meaningless by itself. You're the patient, not the MRI. You don't even really know what's going on yet. Your doctor is ethically obligated to interpret the MRI results as they apply to you. Brain tissue can't be "built." Once gone, it's gone forever. ...Read more

MRI found mild scattered foci of abnormal T2 signal are demonstrated in peri ventricular white matter, particularly along frontal convexities. ?
Non-specific finding: Really a non-specific finding, and in most cases normal, but really would need to see the images. Usually seen frequently in migraines; best to check with your doctor. ...Read more
Brain MRI results " few scattered nonspecific punctuate focal areas of T2 prolongation subcortacally within both frontal lobes" Just diagnosed with R?
What rad reports say: Understanding radiology reports can be challenging. "Nonspecific" usually means cause unclear/many possible causes and often implies "low concern". Generally speaking, " few ..nonspecific ..focal .. T2 .. frontal lobes" in a young woman probably are just Virchow-Robin spaces (no concern) but the specific pt. history is very important. I don't know what "Just diagnosed with R?" means. ...Read more

Minimal right periventricular white matter signal abnormality seen on flair and t2. Tiny punctate focus in the subcortical white matter frontal lobe. Symptoms of joint pain in hands and right leg weak?
Possible Autoimmune: The symptoms and MRI suggest an autoimmune inflammatory condition. Ms is a contender but joint pains are not a usual feature of ms but suggest a rheumatological condition. While rheumatologic conditions may mimic ms, sometimes these disorders may coexist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mild prominence of cortical sulci at the top of the calvarium reflecting minor involutional change.MR brain without constrast otherwise unremarkable.

Pet/ct scan of brain shown bilateral temporal(more severe on left side)parietal, thalami & basal ganglia hypo metabolism.What does it mean, pl advice.
MaybeNothing: Pet/ct can show a region of hypometabolism, yes. But you describe many areas, including bilateral areas. That is much harder to accurately define on these kinds of tests, and results should be viewed with caution. Also, remember that the metabolism images should fit with what is wrong with the patient. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

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 ?
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?
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. Does this help, or do you need more involved answers via Concierge visit? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could a finding of multiple small nonspecific subcortical and deep white matter foci of T2 prolongation have any correlation with neuroborreliosis?
Possibly: Yes possibly but that's. not how it's diagnosed. You need clinical evidence ideally with lab confirmation ...Read more
An MRI revealed thre are few tiny nonspecific foci of increased t2 weigted signal in the perivaentricular and subcortical white matter? Concerns?
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
What does multiple small nonspecific t2/flair hypertintensities in the peri ventricular and subcortical white matter of both cerebral hemispheres mean?
Mri results Scattered punctate foci of incresead T2/FLAIR signal intensity are observed inthe subcortical and deep white matter, what it means?
It usually is an: incidental age-related finding due to chronic microvascular changes, but not always. A few foci at your age are probably nothing to worry about. However, you need to talk to your doctor about what it means in your particular clinical situation. ...Read more
