What Does Vestibular Neuritis Look Like On An Mri
Depends: It depends on many factors including the severity and duration of injury, MRI sequence used, etc. Sciatic neuropathy will appear hyperintense (brighter) on the T2-weighted or STIR MRI sequence. Ask your physician (ideally a neurologist) to review the MRI with you. https://depts.washington.edu/neurolog/images/emg-resources/Sciatic_Neuropathies.pdf ...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

Depends. : Assuming that the study was done with contrast and included the orbits, the absence of a certain type of lesion indicates that the neuritis is less likely to be due to multiple sclerosis. It is possible that the other findings of ms have not developed yet also. Overall, it is better to have a normal MRI scan than an abnormal one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need more info: "spots" can mean a lot of things. Most commonly, there are small areas of increased signal on t2 or flair MRI sequences which generally represent small "scars" or gliosis. It is not unusual to have 1 of these areas for every 10 years of age, so a 50 year old person could have 5-6 and be considered normal. However, the spots you mean could be something completely different. Ask your doctor. ...Read more
Structure/function: An MRI looks at the structure of the body by using magnetic fields. You lie quietly on a table inside a donut-shaped magnet. Sometimes IV contrast is used to bring out the detail in certain structures. An eeg looks at brain function. Wires are placed on the scalp using an adhesive paste, and you lie quietly while an machine records the electrical signals generated by brain activity. ...Read more
I have ms-like symptoms. Had an MRI done and it showed a spot on the cerebellum. Mra & mrv are normal. Dr. Doesnt think ms. What could this be?
Nonspecific: Your symptoms could be due to many conditions, as excessive daytime sleepiness indicates a sleep disorder or even fatigue state. Chronic pain might be fibromyalgia or a peripheral neuropathy. Problems with concentration could be associated with any of the above, but might be due to thyroid or B vitamin issues. Brain MRI lesion is also nonspecific, perhaps a prior stroke? Get second opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anything abnormal: All scans are compared with what the structures look like when normal. If something is abnormal, therefore different than normal, the job of the radiologist is to identify it and determine as best as possible what it is. The same goes for orbits (containing eyes, eye muscles, etc.) and brain scans looking for things different than normal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
