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]).

Acdf at c5-t1 vs. Plan:c5-c7. Doc went down vs. Up. Severe pain/loss mobility. C7-t1 not fused. C3-5 rare/rapid adj level fail. Can c7-t1 be reversed?

Not comfortably: I can't concieve of a set of symptoms or circumstances that would result in a 5 level cervical fusion we all need to review the indications for acdf. I obviously don't have all the information and this is a complex case in general. Fusion reversals for fuse short rod long days in trauma lead to cont pain. ...Read more

Show picture where are the kidneys located in which part of the body?

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

What does it mean for a blood smear to show moderate polychromasia and moderate Schistocytes? Google doesn't give a good picture. :) Thanks

What does it mean for a blood smear to show moderate polychromasia and moderate Schistocytes? Google doesn't give a good picture. :) Thanks

Worrisome: Look for something fragmenting the red blood cells. If the person isn't obviously sick with disseminated intravascular coagulation or thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, perhaps they have an old-fashioned mechanical heart valve. Polychromasia should prompt a search for causes of hemolysis. The pathologist may want to review this slide. Best wishes. ...Read more

Does a child with mild sagittal synostosis automatically need surgery? If no surgery is taken and it is mild with the childs head grow mostly normal?

What????: Would you strike out into the wilderness with no camping or hiking experience, & having never looked at a topographic or hiking map? And then you take a first look at the map and are immediately confused? So what do you do? Post a question on HikeTap? This is analogous, except the knowledge gap in medicine is way, way wider.
