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
Merely resolution: Mri shows larger lesions, but due to the size of many nerves, may not be accurate enough to image. Also, some nerves are mildly entrapped and images do not catch these. But not always case, as often the images do visualize the nerve problem. Matter of angles and cut width. Your doctor should be able to explain in detail. ...Read more
Can you visualize in the MRI views if the cranial nerves are encroaching in the skull base foramen?
MRI of cranial nerve: Mri can visualize the origins of the cranial nerves. As the nerves exit the brainstem and enter various canals and foramina, they become smaller and a bit more difficult to visualize directly. Not entirely sure what you mean by "encroaching in" the skull base foramen, but there can be direct/indirect findings on MRI if there is a problem with a cranial nerve at the skull base. ...Read more
Would a non-contrast MRI show a tumor located on the skull? Are there limitations? Bony protrusion?
Depends: Depends on tumor. If there's a lot of calcium in the tumor then, contrast may not be needed to see it. If it's a meningioma then, contrast may not be necessary because of the Dural Tail sign seen on FLAIR images, however, contrast is generally given to PROVE it. But in other cases tumors may be hidden if small, no mass effect, and no contrast. Contrast always the best if mass suspected. ...Read more

Have birthmark on head mri last week shown diffuse haemangioma in skull bone?! Should i be worried can't stop panicking risk of death?
Relax: These grow their fastest before you reach a year of age and then settle down and just sit or shrink. If you made it to your age you are fine. It is more of a curiosity than a risk. Follow your docs lead on this and settle back into your life. I would't be surprised if they sent you around to a few docs to share the curious finding. ...Read more

How'd u treat anosmia from sah/skull fracture 11 years ago? Losing taste & appetite also & it's getting worse. My MRI is clean.
Not much to do.: The tiny nerves that go from the nose to the brain that give sense of smell were probably torn with the injury. That does not show up on mri. These nerves do not regenerate so there is little chance of regaining sense of smell. Taste is made up largely of sense of smell so that is why things don't taste good either. ...Read more

3 yrs lytic bone lesions through axial skeleton -skull. Extramedullary hematopoiesis. New MRI spots on brain-bone marrow expansion. Can this be fatal?
Depends: Bone marrow expansion throughout the skeleton typically signals either that the marrow is i appropriately expanding into these compartment such as in a myeloproliferative disorder or the present regions of marrow production are insufficient to keep up with current body needs. Regardless of the cause this is best answered by hands on evaluation, testing and management by a hematologist. ...Read more
Right side temple pain since 3 yrs, mri normal sudden pain shifted to base of skull left side and around left ear too chronic pain, ct scan normal?
Diagnosis? Complicat: The condition sounds rather complicated — shifting sites of pain / headache make the diagnosis very difficult. I hope you are seeing a neurologist. You have listed a bunch of symptoms, but not a diagnosis, & I presume that "What is the diagnosis?" is your question. Use HealthTap Prime to engage in dialogue with a physician & perhaps they can come to a diagnosis. Uploading pictures would help ...Read more
