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
Does MS show on brain mri? Pressure headaches and tremor and confusion . What can I have ? I have sjögren's syndrome .
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. A lumbar puncture with analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid will make the diagnosis of MS. See the neurologist to manage the headaches and dysesthesias. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

See details: They possible causes are endless. Have an ophthalmologist evaluate the visual problems. ...Read more
MY MRI's?: Well, thanks for asking. MY MRI's of the spine and brain...well, they're very well thank you..;) But I guess we're talking about maybe YOUR MRI's? I need to say 1 very important thing. Listen up...MRI's don't diagnose MS..qualified people do. An MRI of a spinal CORD can definitely NOT show signs CONSISTENT with MS while a brain's does. Make sense? Maybe? Got pictures? ww.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Merely technical: Looking directly at base of brain and pituitary requires slightly different cuts and angles, as the focus is directed to a small area of brain, but the software and pictures are handled in a similar fashion. In ms, we tend to use specialized approaches, such as flair or double inversion recovery to see the white matter spots better. Not needed for pituitary views, usually. ...Read more
Is it possible to have a clean spinal tab and have ms? I was told i'm showing signs including the brain mri
What is the difference in contrast enhancing lesion and contrast enhancing nodule in brain mri report of ms patient?
Very little: The nodule may be the lesion referred to in the report. Would need to know more but contrast enhancing means it took up the radiocontrast media. A lesion is only something you see on the xray. It may be the nodule but does not refer to size. Ask your doc for more info. Best to you. ...Read more
Brain MRI with white matters and 4 black holes findings. Are back holes alway a sign of ms? Or not necessarily. I have no symptoms of ms.
We term this: Radiologically isolated syndrome, and sorry, but many of these mri's foretell future diagnosis of clinically definite ms. Suggest you go further, get films of cervical spinal cord, and maybe lumbar puncture. Would strongly urge a consult with a neurologist who specializes in ms, as the proper management is rather complex these days. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are little dots appearing on a brain MRI that are not in the matter itself, but run down the middle areas? Radiology said negative for MS.
Neuroradiology: Not my specialty. I've referred question to Neuroradiology. Bright spots on brain MR are often termed UBO's (unidentified bright objects, I'm not kidding). Though there's talk about relationship to MS, I know several personally have had them for decades, and nothing yet. They choose to adopt a positive attitude "oh, must be my UBO's!" when forgetting keys, etc. Hope Healthtap provides you info. ...Read more
Is it possible 2 have MS even if the brain MRI was normal? I have all the symptoms; fallen102 times since oct12, speech&memory issues, tremoring etc
My primary and chiro say my lhermitte's isnt ms. Brain MRI and neuro normal. They're not worried, thinking pinched nerve. Should i be, or get 3rd op?
Had a brain MRI (suspected MS) and had a call the following day to ask for an urgent scan for a clearer view. Should I be concerned?
Glasses smudged?: They're asking for a "clearer view" which ain't a diagnosis. From what I've seen with patients in the UK I'd think you'd be happy to get as many MRI's of the head as they're willing to give! It's so hard to get just ONE done on somebody who's really deserving. My God woman...they're offering you TWO! By all means- get 'em done. Wanna chat about anything? www.healthtap.com/dr-drsaghafi ...Read more
Had brain MRI done on 1.5 tesla.worried it missed MS lesions as having sensory issues.can that strength still pick up lesions in most cases?
I have MS symptoms to the point of affecting my life and work...Brain MRI indicative of ms.....All else ruled out. Neg. L.P. So dr wont treat .....Why?
Complex diagnosis: Unable to evaluate your doctor's decision, but must emphasize that many docs have a hard time understanding whether MRI lesions are specific for ms or another condition. If you also have lesions on cervical MRI or brain lesions change, that would be better confirmation of ms. So, suggest a followup study at 6 months. Second opinion may be in order. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If the doc said my brain MRI looked okay then should I stop worryin about if I have ms? I'm 19, male
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
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
