What Shows On A Brain Mri With Lupus Or Ms
Cyst: Most likely the cyst is an arachoid cyst of congenital origin, and is unlikely to be of any clinical concern or significance. One solitary cyst as described is not a sign of MS or infection, or cancer, and should be best regarded as a coincidental finding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Headache and dyasthesia for 1year. Neuro thinks migraines. Brain Mri normal and bloods. Liver Alt 67. Worried about ms. Would MS show on Mri?
Headaches: Yes. Multiple sclerosis (MS) plaques are commonly found on an MRI study along the corpus callosum, periventricular white matter, cerebellum, brain stem, and spinal cord.

Brain MRI findings. Tiny nonspecific periventricular and subcortical white matter. Possiblities mini strokes, vasculaties, ms. I shuffle my feet & drop?
Nonspecific finding: White matter changes that are nonspecific are sometimes over reported or under-reported on MRI studies.

So you shuffle your feet and drop? What do you mean by drop? Do you have numbness? Why was the brain MRI done? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had a negative brain mri without contrast. Do I need one with contrast or only if they saw something? Are the chances of ms lower?
Comments: Negative brain MRI is very much against MS, but if concerns persist, a cervical MRI should be sought. Lack of contrast may be minor issue, as this would highlight newer lesions, but not miss older lesions. Chance, so far, of MS is very low, but to be complete, if symptoms are compelling, repeat images at 6 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multiple sclerosis: A normal brain MRI can USUALLY exclude multiple sclerosis as a diagnosis. However, it depends on the quality of the MRI and whether the proper sequences (e.g FLAIR and sometimes Gadolinium) were performed. Even with a good MRI, 5% of patients with MS will have normal MRIs. A neurologist can diagnose multiple sclerosis based upon your neurologic symptoms over time, even if the MRI is normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a negative brain MRI w/o contrast on 1.5 tesla.Still having MS type symptoms.would another MRI be helpful ?should it be w contrast or is w/o fine?
Couple points: "MS symptoms" can be very nonspecific and can be due to many different conditions, so certainly not a diagnosis. The negative MRI films of brain are reassuring, and if no MS lesions seen on cervical imaging, you do NOT have MS. You mention spinal cord compression, and this mechanical issue may explain your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Male, 37yo, only symptom is lhermitte's, brain MRI is clear. Is MS still most likely cause or something else?
Significance: Lhermitte's is sign of problem involving posterior columns of spinal cord, and could be due to vertebral or disc compression, B-12 deficiency, and even MS. Did you have spinal MRI? If you possess but one localized area of complaint, this is not an initial sign of MS until other possibilities are excluded. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
