I have Multiple Sclerosis and during a routine MRI of my T-spine the MRI happened to pick up a T2 hyperintense lesion on my liver. ?

Not MS

Multiple_sclerosis
The lesion on your liver is in no way related to MS, and needs clarification. May well be benign but need to see specialist and get an answer ASAP

Dr. Eva Duckett answered:

What could this be (liver)? Two T2 hyperintense lesions. Questionable minimal peripheral enhancement, but lesions do not completely fill with contrast

Hemangiomas vs. cyst

Liver
Bunny: T2 lesions in the liver are typically not cancerous and represent usually hemangiomas or liver cysts. When they say did not completely fill with contrast, that hints to me that they are thinking hemangiomas. A sonogram is a good follow up test for these or a CT scan to confirm. The CT should be with contrast and with delayed images. A sonogram will spare you the radiation of a CT scan.

Very non-specific finding. It might be a siple cyst or a tumor. An ultrasound might differentiate them.

T1 and T2 hyperintense lesion in left aspect of the T2 vertebral body, which loses signal on inversion recovery imaging felt to reflect a hemangioma.

Sounds right

Hemangioma
Fat containing benign vertebral body hemangiomas often look just like this.

Normal

Arachnoid granulations are a normal part of skull anatomy involved in spinal fluid regulation.

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

Mri
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.

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?

Not really

Wounds
The lesion you describe is likely benign. But it all depends on the rest of your medical history. As long as you do not have history of any other cancer, it may not be of much relevance. The question is why you did your MRI of spine?

Dr. Amy Deeken answered:

MRI said 8mm hyporintense lesion in the inferior aspect of the spleen is noted. impression did not list this but it did say small T2 hyperintense splenic lesion may represent cyst or hemaginoma worry?

No

Mri
If the MRI wasn't ordered to stage a malignancy that you all ready have. The radiologist favors something benign. Most lesions that are distinct on radiology in the spleen are usually benign hemangiomas. The spleen is a common place for hemangiomas. There are always exceptions, so it is a good idea to follow it up over time with several more scans to make sure it doesn't grow or change.

What does hyperintense cystic lesion in the left adnexa mean?

Probable benign

Wounds
This sounds like a more "descriptive" definition instead of actual "lesion" diagnosis. I t describes a significant "cystic" type lesion. These are mostly benign. However, i would follow your Doc's advice on this. We biopsy or remove these if expanding or bothersome.

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

Incidental finding

Bones
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.
