Venous Lake Skull Mri
Can diffuse haemangioma in skull bone cause Subdural Hematoma or cavenous sinus thrombosis so worried?
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
MRI of the brain 12.07.2014 CONCLUSION: external hydrocephalus. Lateral ventricles ASYMMETRICAL BRAIN L> R, Ext. Third ventricle is not expanded, the
Hydrocephalus: External hydrocephalus is a build up of cerebrospinal fluid over the surface of the brain rather than in the ventricles. Normally cerebrospinal fluid circulates from the brain to the spinal cord and back to the brain. When there is poor reabsorption or blockage then hydrocephalus (water on the brain) develops. See a neurosurgeon to help with treatment. ...Read more
Several factors: One of the factors is the distribution of the infarct. The arteries of the brain have a very well-defined territory that they supply and venous infarcts may not be isolated to one of those territories. Also, there may be direct or indirect evidence on a noncontrast ct or MRI that suggest occlusion of one of the major venous structures. Clinical history is also considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Would a regular MRI w/contrast on brain reveal severe vertebral artery insufficiency/stenosis causing vertigo?
Having mri/mra of neck, carotid, and posterior fossa - will it show masses in the cerebellopontine angle, jugular, vagal, vestibular schwanommas, etc?
Head and Neck Masses: Mri uses large magnets to create images of possible masses. Mri is a related technology that images blood vessels to look for blockages or aneurysms (ballooning). While there are some more specialized tests to look at certain areas, in general, the answer to your question is yes. ...Read more
Commonly seen on MRI: Cavernous angioma is a cluster of tiny but abnormal blood vessels that can be seen in the brain or spinal cord. Many people never experience symptoms from a cavernous angioma and may never even know they have one. They do have a tendency to bleed and depending on the location and size, they can cause seizures or other neurologic symptoms. ...Read more
What areas of brain does "mri brain stem w/o dye" image or cover?Is mra included in above and does it like mra image or look for cerebral aneurysm?
Whole brain stem: The MRI would look at your entire brainstem, shown in the picture. The brainstem is the lower part of your brain that controls breathing and heartrate. An mra (magentic resonance angiogram) is not the same, and would be ordered as a separate test with dye injection. An mra looks at blood vessels for aneurysyms, obstructions, or tears, while an MRI looks for tumors, demyelination, or strokes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Occipital neuralgia: We call this occipital neuralgia. Sometimes due to a condition known as arnold chiari malformation, sometimes due to disc in upper neck sometimes due to arthritis in the neck and sometimes just can't find cause, just have to treat it. Tegretol works fairly good for this. ...Read more
Radiology/neurology. Ct scan shows bone, MRI shows soft tissue, so therefore can't indentify disease of skull bones. Intercrainial means misdiagnosis?

Ischemic Brain: Not likely. At your age, the vascualr ischemia is more apt to be due to chronic high blood pressure or diabetes. It is important to follow up on this with your doctor to avoid small lesions called "lacunar" infarcts. Often, medication can be prescribed which will improve your micro vascualr integrity and avoid further damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fluid in mastoid
Mastoid inflammation: when you have mastoid fluid this can be acute or chronic. If it is chronic - it is often from prior mastoid infection. If it is acute you will have focal pain and possible fever. It can actually be a very serious condition. In general this should be dealt with by a physician who might determine if you need antibiotics. The other findings are not related. Optic neuritis is blurred vision. ...Read more
Brain MRI "there is mild polypoid mucosal thickening in ethmoid air cells."i have headaches, vision/hearing changes, tearing up, head pressure, sinuitis?
Possible: Mri is not a sensitive tool for sinusitis. Often, the sinuses are normal when one lights up on an mri. Your symptoms are not classic for a sinus infection, and MRI is better for looking for central nervous system problems as the cause of your headache. I would ask your doctor for an antibiotic good for sinusitis and follow up with a ct scan of the sinuses for the definitive answer. ...Read more
On a brain MRI whay does "expected signal voids are seen in the intracranial vessels at skull base"? Is that bad? Neuro said MRI was unremarkable.
Brain MRI says satisfactory intraluminal signal is noted in distal carotid vertebral and basilar arteries. Unremarkable brain MRA. What does this mean?
Normal vessels.: means normal vessels.Get a more detailed answer ›
