What Does Lung Cancer Look Like On A Mri Scan
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Can MRI scan of lungs detect cancer accurately? Or whether nodule is caused by an infection , can it detect nature of infection without broncoscopy
Can CT scan miss lung cancer ? Can an MRI find it while doing scan on thorastic spine? Both without contrast
What does back pain feel like with lung cancer? And if u already had MRI that didn't show anything suspicious could it still be
Pain from any: Metastasis is caused either by expansion of the vertebrae streching the periosteum, or collapse of the bone. The mr is very sensitive to marrow changes the precede either of these events. Rarely, an intramedullary (within the spinal cord) metastasis could leave the bones alone and cause pain, weakness or numbness depending on location. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: Mri's are geared to see specific portions of anatomy, such as bone, soft tissue, vessels, etc. While other structures can be visualized with a spinal mri, it is inadequate to make a diagnosis. If something is suspected, any radiologist would immediately recommend another imaging study to better visualize the area or concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a mcrp Mri and it showed non specific atelectasis bilateral lung bases. Could this be lung cancer or copd?
My Dad has metastic NSC Lung cancer. What does "increased T2 prolongation involving the right midbrain" mean on his MRI?
Need whole picture: It is difficult to answer your question with this isolated finding. Would have to know the patients entire history and have all data that is available. The information you have could suggest a lesion/ mass in that area of the brain. Please review the total MRI findings with the physician who ordered the study or the doc who knows your father's case best. ...Read more

Took brain mri.multiple t2hypointense lesion in cerebral parenchyma.possibilty of granuloma or brain secondries..my mom hv lung cancer.is it secondary?
Probably neither: Difficult to know without seeing all the MRI sequences. It would be helpful to know if the lesions enhance after Gadolinium contrast and if they "bloom" on susceptibility weighted sequences and if they are calcified or invisible on CT scan. Metastatic disease would be very unlikely in a 30 year old without a known primary cancer. My best guess would be multiple cavernous malformations. ...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
