What Is A Cine Mri
What are the benefits of doing a MRI with contrast? I had one without contrast and it was normal. They are wanting to rule out anything in my inner
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
Motion sensitive MRI: A cine MRI is a special type of MRI image in which a series of static images are obtained at different times and then played back as a movie. Cine MRI is helpful in evaluating tissues that move such as the heart, flowing blood, or cerebral spinal fluid. It is occasionally used in evaluating bowel, joint or muscle motion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dr used a 7 in" square EKG sticker on my chest as part of a cspine MRI, I can't find anything about cine MRI in my report, so why the sticker?
Chiari 1, neurosurgeon=all symptoms chiari but dizziness, surg. If cine mri=blocked CSF. Ref to neuro-oto says all symptoms Chiari & do surg. Bc of sx., now what?
Chiari malformation: Chiari malformations are structural defects in the cerebellum (controls balance) in type I which can be acquired, the cerebellum is compressed through FM., as a result, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid is blocked. Your dizziness is due to imbalance from cerebellar compression which will improve with a shunt surgery. There is no role for Oto, this is not likely primary vestibular. ...Read more
Magnetic Reasonance: MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. Unlike X-ray or CT, there is no ionizing radiation with an MRI. MRI gives different information about structures in the body than can be seen with an X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan. ...Read more
Yes, as long as..: ...you restrict the meaning of "nerve" to its proper definition of one of the large named peripheral nerves e.g. median, trigeminal, common peroneal; or the nerve ROOTS in the spinal canal; or the roots, trunks and cords of the brachial and lumbosacral plexuses. You can't see individual neurons or terminal branches such as nerve endings in the skin. ...Read more
MRI is simply using: Radiowaves and magnetism to image your body. It lets us see many things and your doctor would best help you where it is most useful. It is super important for imaging of the brain and spine. It is very important for imaging of the prostate and breast. It is good for almost any kind of imaging if done properly. It does not use ionizing radiation and therefore is safer than using xrays. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Magnetic Resonance: Magnetic resonance imagining. Basically an MRI puts your body in a magnetic field which causes electrons and protons to allign in certain ways and special sensors and lots of computer power create a picture of whatever is being scanned. Neat huh? No x-rays are involved with an mri. ...Read more
Drum roll please!: Answer: When a CT just won't do! Ta Ta BAHHHHH! Or when your doc's a neurologist, neurosurgeon, or neuroradiologist! Anyhow, NECESSARY...the list can be huge & exhausting to go through 1 item at a time. But sort of think of it as the need to know DETAILS (MRI) vs. The need to know GENERALITIES (CT). Example: You want to know if blood is on the brain- CT vs. How old is the blood- MRI. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Quite a bit: The MRI will show the disks between the vertebrae, the vertebrae themselves, the spinal canal, the spinal cord (if the study is of the cervical or thoracic spine as the spinal cord ends in the lumbar region), and the nerve roots. Surrounding soft tissues will also be included. ...Read more
