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?

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, t1 hyperintense bone lesion in the first thoracic vertebral body is most likely a benign hemangioma, mean?

Incidental finding: This is an incidental finding that would be unrelated to reason for the test. It is a benign and common finding in bone that does not progress to anything. Just a "it's there"'comment by the radiologist. ...Read more

What does d.O. Of prolactinoma w/ comment"homogenously t1 hyperintense sellar mass measuring upto 1.1cm compatible w/hemorrhage in2 microadenoma" mean

A pituitary tumor: A prolactinoma is a pituitary tumor which produces the hormone prolactin. This hormone can induce breast milk production so patients may present with leaky breasts. This tumor require surgical resection by a board certified neurosurgeon. The surgery is performed through the nasal passages so there is need to shave the patients head prior to this brain surgery. ...Read more

What does ovarian cyst with hypointense signal intensity on t1 and hyperintense signal intensity on t2 with peripheral enhancement means?

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

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?

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

What does "t1 and t2 hyperintense focus at L1 vertebral segment" suggest (from MRI reading)? Have pain, muscle spasms, hard tissue in low back/gluteal

May be inflammation: Hyper intensity my indicate inflammation or a hemangioma. Tough to say without looking at the images. I would see a spine specialist and get an opinion. The gluteal area is well below l1. So I do not believe those symptoms are related. ...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

What is t2 hyperintense r/lower pole renal lesion demonstrates hyperintensity on non fatsaturated t1 image. Post contrast vascular phenomenon MRI Scan?

Appearance descripti: These words (presumably from a radiology report) describe what the MRI looks like (hyperintensity - very bright) & the location (lower part of the [renal] kidney) & the way the images were obtained (T2 weighting & fat-saturation T1 & dye [contrast]). All this means nothing without symptoms. For a doctor to help you, he/she needs to know what the MRI was trying to diagnose. W/o symptoms, means noth ...Read more

Mri of my spine showing an intramedullary t2 hyperintense lesion at t1 (4mm) with dilatation of central canal. Ct brain -periventricular wm ischemia im only 49 with severe pain and mobility problems?

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 more

Are all mris without contrast t1 weighted? How do I know?

Are all mris without contrast t1 weighted? How do I know?

Types of MR Images: This is a T1 image. It is used for fine detail among other things. T2 images are also done routinely and show fluid or water in tissues. IV contrast shows up only on T1 images. On T1 images water is grey, on T2 it is white. There are also many other scan sequences (types).
The physics of image production would blow your mind, sort of like in the picture (the top of the skull has been removed). ...Read more

Can t1 diabetes give you hepatitus c?

No it can't: The only way to be infected with HepC is through exposure to infected blood via accidental needlestick, transfusion, tattooing or sharing needles, and in some instances sexual contact. HepC infected mothers can transmit the virus to their newborns about 5% of the time. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

How to tell if I have t1 diabetes, lupus and m.S at age 17?

How to tell if I have t1 diabetes, lupus and m.S at age 17?

Not likely: Why worry about 3 disorders, as you likely possess one unifying diagnosis to explain your problems. A good place to start is with an endocrinologist to deal with diabetes and the complications secondary to this. Focus on these issues, and later, if things seem peculiar look into co-morbities. Lastly, if you possess diabetes and lupus, doubt you have ms in addition. ...Read more

What to do if I have a small vertebral boy hemangioma showing high signal intensity in t1&t2wis what's that?

What to do if I have a small vertebral boy hemangioma showing high signal intensity in t1&t2wis what's that?

Why was MRI done?: Hemangiomas are abnormal bundles of blood vessels. Most are benign although there are exceptions. It is important to know why the MRI was done. If the MRI was done for pain at the location of the hemangioma, you may have found the problem. Otherwise, this may be an incidental finding unrelated to the problem which led to the MRI. Discuss it with the doctor who ordered the MRI to determine a plan. ...Read more

Mri tspine shows an x over vertebra and technician marked t1=155. I'm scared. Can you tell me what this means?

Mri tspine shows an x over vertebra and technician marked t1=155. I'm scared. Can you tell me what this means?

Need more info: Please just call your doctors office and ask for the results! Do not wait anxiously!

do not know what the x means, but it probably is a marker - for what, I do not know.

The t1=155 references an MRI value - images can be obtained with what is called t1 or t2 signal - in one, fluid is dark (t1) and the other, bright (t2). This is a basic concept, and clinical MRI is more complex. ...Read more
