T2 Hyperintense Foci Brain Mri Imaging
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 or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
My brain MRI showed multiple T2/flair hyperintense foci more numerous than expected for my age (39) Should I consult a neurologist?

Sir my mri report is T2 hyperintense foci seen in the bilateral periventricular and subcortical wthit matter-?non-specific foci/? demyelinating foci /
MRI results: could mean a lot of different things. Need more information to help you. A virtual consult may help you. ...Read more
My mother, 84, MRI scan> subacute infarcts, bilateral frontal lobes, small vessel ischematic changes inthe basal ganglia, periventricular white matter?
Small vessel disease: Mri in a 84 years old lady showing infarcts and small vessel disease means she is having ministrokes. That is very common in that age group. If she has heart disease or carotid artery disease or risk factors like high BP or diabetes or high lipids they should be controlled and she should follow up with her dr who can give her further recommendations. ...Read more
Mra - lobulated lesion isohypointense on t1 & isohyperintense on t2w1.Show enhancng walls 27/22/25mm in rt frontopareital cortex, broad zone wm edema.
T2/FLAIR hyperintensity MRI w/o contrast, 25 y/o female. Normal?? "Nonspecific 3mm nodular WMH rt ant. parietal subcortical" MD referred to MS spec.
CT Brain shows mass prepontine cistern CPA meningioma. Symptoms consistent with diagnosis. MRI contrast show no lesion. Symptoms persist! Now what?
Very strange: Not certain what to make of the disparity between the CT scan and the MRI. In some cases, a lesion is so small that it is missed by the artifact created by the thickness of the MRI slices. I would ask your doctor if an MRI of the brainstem with "thin slices" might be reasonable to confirm/refute the CT--with and without contrast. Take care and stay healthy! ...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

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
LLegNumbnes, xray n MRI of back show no nerve pressing, showed hemogliates, MRI w/out brain shows Few foci flair hypersensitivity 2 month MRI with c?
Leg numbness: I am not sure what you mean by the term hemogliates in reference to the MRI of the lumbar spine. Also, the brain MRI study is nonspecific in regard to the location of hyperintense foci. Discuss the MRI findings with your neurologist to determine if they have clinical relevance. ...Read more
38y f. Brain MRI shows left maxillary polyp, partial empty sella, small chronic ischaemic lesions in subcorticle frontoparietal white matter. Cure?
Nothing to cure: But try to prevent further damage. Maxillary sinus polyp is nothing to worry about unless sinus symptoms, then ENT consult. Partial empty sella cannot be fixed, and nothing to worry about unless abnormal pituitary function - may need to see an endocrinologist. Ischemic lesions may be within normal limits (allowed 1 per decade of life), but need to understand cause(s) and try to prevent more. ...Read more
What does nonspecific, subtle subcortical left frontal lobe hypodensities without significant mass mean on ct scan impression?
Nothing w/o symptoms: The impression of a CT scan means nothing unless there are symptoms or signs that warrant the scan to begin with. Why was the CT scan ordered? What symptoms did you have? The impression says that there are less dense spots in the left front part of the brain, but no mass, no tumor. The cause (& significance) of the spots is unknown. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test or use HealthTap Prime. ...Read more
Ct scan false negative? 2012 renal US found 5mm solid lesion (likely aml). New US found bilateral lesions, avascular. 5mm now 7mm. New 1cm, CT normal
Renal cysts: Renal cysts are common in people over the age of 50, and are not significant. I don't know what AML stands for. A solid lesion needs a repeat study after a few months to show that it is not getting larger. You should review the CT report with your physician ...Read more
MRI scan says "small focal T2 & flair hyperintensity at subcortical white matter of the right frontal region.The features are nonspecific. " is it Ms?
Usually nothing: There are many reasons for FLAIR periventricular hyperintensity. Usually, especially in older people, it means changes in the blood vessels in the brain. This is often due to a combination of atherosclerosis, demyelination (loss of the "white matter" covering the nerves), and scarring. It is very common and usually clinically insignificant. This is likely your case by use of the word "minimal." ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No contrast CT showed ill defined hypodense area on hepatic lobe. Ordered new CT w contrast w liver mass protocol not hemangioma protocol concerning?
Get iv contrast CT: There are many reasons to have a liver mass, more often than not, they are benign, but clearly depending on past medical history, It is difficult without contrast to differentiate these lesions, there are various ways to give intravenous contrast. A hemangioma protocol is also known as a triphasic study, allows one to look at three phases of liver perfusion but more complex to do. ...Read more
Had MRI of brain. States diffuse pathologic t2 hypersignall noted bilaterally in frontal parietal regions. I'm scared....Dementia? ? Ms???
Discuss w/ provider: One of the most important parts of imaging is providing meaningful and clear explanations of results to the patient and their family. There is no need for you to suffer additional hrm from being scared. Don't wait - call for a followup visit ASAP. Meanwhile - stop trying to guess at the meaning. It takes doctors years to understand these results. You'll Best! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
