What Is Endplate Irregularity
Bone spurs: Endplates are vertebral body structures adjacent to the intervertebral disc. Each vertebra has a superior and inferior endplate, with a few exceptions. As one ages , there may be osteophytes that grow from one endplate, around the disc, toward the adjacent endplate, forming a bony bridge between two vertebra. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It can be thick : Just from building up too much secretory or proliferative endometrium, but it could be abnormal tissue, often times if the ultrasound was done right before your period and at your age your doc may want to repeat the us the first part of your cycle and if the lining measures less than 1.0cm that is normal, if it measures 1.3 then u need an in office hysteroscopy and bx to sample the tissue. ...Read more
Bone spurs: Anterior implies "situated in front of the body" osteophytosis implies bone spurs. So it is just one of those terminologies that can be used when describing findings on a spine xray for example either a cervical spine or lumbar spine xray, when there are bone spurs notices in the front of your spine, typically common at the disc space and endplate level. These are just part of degenerative disc. ...Read more

What does this mean? L-5 s-1 there is central disc protrusion which contacts the thecal sac and bilateral facet degenerative change thickening flavum
Disc & Facet Issues: Looks like by the verbage you gave, your MRI suggests that you have disc herniation at L5/S1. "Central" just means in the middle of the spinal canal,"bilateral facet degenerative change thickening flavum" suggests arthritis of the facet joint and the ligament that protects the spine is thickened due to that arthritis. Protrusion is just another name for a herniation. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I have low backache, MRI indicates focal marrow edema antero-superiorly to L4 vetebrae with no other degenerative changes.what is it? Is it lethal?
Echo: What is Borderline concentric LV hypertrophy? Is it bad? Need medication or is it normal ? ECG is normal! Thanks!
LVH.: This findings means that the entire left ventricle is a little bit thickened. The muscle layer of the left ventricle can be thickened in people who have high blood pressure, or in those who are overweight, for example. Not a danger in and of itself, but should be followed by serial 2D Echo over the years, and you may want a Cardiologist opinion as to cause. ...Read more
What do this mean? Mild to moderate degenerative joint disease biateral hips and what is the paragraph below saying? Alignment appears anatomic. Mild narrowing is noted at hip jonit biaterally. Moderate bony spurring is noted of the acetabulum biatera
"Alignment : "alignment appears anatomic" means everything is lined up as it should be. "mild narrowing is noted at hip joint bilaterally" means there is some arthritis in the hip joint. "moderate bony spurring of the acetabulum bilaterally" means a little extra bone (like a little spur) has formed at the hip "cup" where the hip socket fits in, and is also arthritis changes. "phleboliths" just means calcium in a vein or vessel and is normal, it is a normal finding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Degenerative: Basically refers to degenerative (aging) changes of the spine. Disk/osteophyte refers to bone spur and/or disc protrusion (often can't clearly differentiate between the two), and facet/uncovertebral refers to the joints at the back part (facets) and sides (uncovertebral) of the cervical vertebrae. ...Read more
What does it mean that there is generalized disk/osteophyte complex with more focal central protrusion. This causes effacement of the ventral portion?
YOU HAVE A BACKACHE: From a combination of a disk and arthritic spurs, causing pressure on the cord and the nearby nerve(s) producing spinal stenosis (narrowing) of the spinal canal (trapping the nerves and the cord). Most likely resulting in back pain and leg pain/numbness/tingling in the leg or feet. Urinary/bowel symptoms may be present as well. See your orthopod/spine surgeon. ...Read more
What does "Abnormal anterolateral wall ischemia" mean? Also indicated is V2-V6 depression... this is all very technical... can you explain please?
Heart disease: In short, the blood vessels in your heart are diseased and less than required blood is getting to the muscle of the heart. I trust that you are under the care of a doctor. Please be compliant with the instructions of your doctor. Wish you good health. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Appearance changing: That means that the amount of edema (like swelling) in the vertebral bodies has decreased compared to your earlier study. This may indicate improvement or treatment effect, however, these types of changes on MRI don't always correlate with the patient's symptoms. Hope that helps! ...Read more
Fuse L4/S1 Feb 2014. MRI this month: L3/4: There is mild disc Desiccation, disc bulge, and posterior annual tear. What does this mean?
Back pain: You are developing breakdown or arthritis at the level above the fusion. The fusion acts as a lever and puts extra stress on the adjacent level. A CT scan of the lumbar spine can determine if the fusion is solid and the hardware is not broken/loose. Arthritis and back pain can occur at the level above the fusion (L3/4) or below the fusion (sacroiliac joints). See your spine surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more
Wearing out joints.: Uncovertebral joint are located in the neck. These joints allow the neck to flex and extend and help prevent lateral bending. Uncovertebral degeneration is "wear and tear" arthritis in the joints in the neck. The bones thicken from bone spurs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Spinal disease: Basically those terms describe changes in vertebrae that are affected by arthritis or degenerative changes. Facets are the small posterior joints at each level of spine. Disease there is again a component of arthritis. Osteophytes are spurs which occur as areas of bone and joint are stressed and try to protect their structures. Endplate sclerosis is bony thickening seen at vertebral disc area. ...Read more
