T1 Sagital Images Shows Mild Volume Loss
Brain MRI T1 Sag 2000, 2003, 2013: parieto occipital sulcus shows marked, progressive widening. The other sulci show minimally progressive widening.
53 yo female (RN) s/p optic neuritis. MRI shows "FLAIR & T2 images show scattered punctate areas of increased signal w/I periventricular white matter"?
MS or not MS?: This kind of case will either be diagnosed as optic neuritis or as MS. Since the T2 / FLAIR lesions are small (i.e. punctate) it is a bit uncertain. If they were a bit larger, the diagnosis would be MS. For smaller lesions, perhaps it is not. A spinal tap may help to sort out the answer. The answer is important, so that future relapses can be prevented. Think about vitamin D. ...Read more
Mri: sagittal t2 & flair imag, altho less well seen in the axial plane, is increas signal wthin c5-c6 cervical cord, perhaps an area of myelomalacia, ?
Myelomalacia: That means that there may or may not be an area of subtle change which may represent myelomalacia in your cervical spine at the c5/6 location. Myelomalacia if present can signify injury that is ongoing or had been there in the past. Only a history and neurological exam can determine if this 'finding' (if any is actually there) is of any clinical relevance. Please be evaluated by a spine surgeon. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

My X-ray of l/s spine ap/lat shows minimal anterir lysthesis of L4 over L5 with degenrative changes.
What it means ?
Spondylolisthesis: It literally translates to mean a spine bone slipping . Think of the spine as a stack of a child's abc blocks being perfectly aligned in a tower formation and then pushing one a little over another & that displacement is what a spondylolisthesis is in the spine with one bone slipped or displaced over another. There are several different types including degenerative. They rarely progress ...Read more
Chest MRI shows small pericard effusion (45mm diameter and 8mm thickness).Cardiol. said 99,9% normal,repeat MRI in 6 months.Is normal? Causes? Txs
Possibly: A small amount of fluid around the heart is normal and what you describe may be normal. Many things can cause increased pericardial fluid including infections, autoimmune process like lupis erythematosis, trauma, heart attack, or tumors. The MRI can diagnose some of these causes, but not all. Some lab test may aid in the diagnosis of the cause. ...Read more
Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?
Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What does 'prominent soft tissue density demonstrating decreased attenuation on postcontrast imaging' mean on a CT report?
Depends...: Depends on where in the body it is what structure it is referring to - like a lymph node, in an organ, outside an organ or lymph node region, or in the subcutaneous tissues. I would need more information to expand more. ...Read more
Neuro says MRI ok. Radio states solitary punctate focus of prolonged T2 in rt front operculum-incidental gliosis-meaning? Got test 4 tingling tongue.
Not cause of tinging: Solitary=single, punctate=pin-point (in size). Prolonged T2 refers to the timing of the MRI signal (MRI signals are obtained T1-& T2-weighted; if report only mentions T2 abnl, then prob not signif), frontal operculum=the area towards the front of the big gap/ridge on the side of the brain. Incidental=found by chance (unrelated to your symptoms). Gliosis=reaction of a nerve cell type (prob fluid/cy ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
47 yo fem. W/fatigue, ha & memory loss. Mri 9/9 & 11/12/13 abnormal t2 hyperintensity involving the globus pallidus bilaterally. Neuro says normal?
Let's evaluate: Your fatigue, memory loss, and headaches are not "normal", and can be caused by thyroid, b-vitamin deficiencies, psychological issues, migraine, infection, etc. The bilateral t-2 lesions may be nonspecific, but should not be glibly dismissed, at this point. A cause for your complaints should be sought. Consider a second opinion. ...Read more
Mri reading need interpretation , focal swelling with heterogenous abnormal signal in the spinal coed atc5-c6 level suggesting neoplasm has improved?
Need to discuss with: As stated, this sounds as if you had a type of previous "neoplasm" and the test is showing an improvement in the swelling around certain areas of your neck at c5-6. Possibly the radiologist did not know your history of previous neck surgery in the area. I recommend you have the ordering dr discuss your hx and the findings with the radiologist and then discuss in detail with you. Best wishes. ...Read more
Mri cervical spine states patchy T1
hypointensity within the marrow. Blood tests shows large platelets and 91 platelet count What does this mean?
Needs medical attent: I assume you have a doctor taking care of you. if not seek one, you may actually need to see a hematologist provided a repeat Platelet count shows low platelet count. Platlet counts under 150,000 are considered low. There can be many causes for it. You need to do a CBC(complete blood count) and send us the results. This might give a clue. But further testing will be required if platelets remain lo ...Read more
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
