Had deep ache in up back in one spot for over 2 yrs, i have had right breast ultrasound it was ok, mam ok. Spine MRI ok. Shoud i get MRI of breast?

Not necessary: It is unlikely the pain in your back is related to your breasts as long as other tests were normal. Hope the MRI of the spine was your neck. If not you might consider that. But you should talk to your doctors ad always to help find the cause ...Read more

Is it normal for a MRI to show white spots on spine not the spinal cord but by the discs in between them

Is it normal for a MRI to show white spots on spine not the spinal cord but by the discs in between them

It can be: It is difficult to answer this without seeing the MRI or at least knowing more about the MRI. There are two main types of pictures taken in an MRI, they are labelled as "T1" and "T2" images. Also, sometimes contrast (a compound injected intravenously for the MRI) is given. A white area in the center of the discs on a T2 image is normally suggestive of healthy (well hydrated) discs and is normal ...Read more

You need to see a hematologist or medical oncologist to help you arrive at a proper diagnosis and then treatment for your problem which is likely to be a lymph node cancer /lymphoma. ...Read more

Would cancer show up in a full spine mri?

Would cancer show up in a full spine mri?

Few extra ideas: Dr. Colen is right, but there are some gotchas. 1. If it is all over the whole spine (in the bones) and looks uniform, it can be missed. This is akin to a "super scan" for a bone scan. If in the marrow like leukemia and uniform, it can be missed. If very early, small lesions can be hard to call, even if you suspect them. Spine mrii's are hard to read: flow artifact, cuts on the fields... ...Read more

What it mean atypical hemangioma found in Spine MRI?

What it mean atypical hemangioma found in Spine MRI?

Vertebral: hemangiomas are common incidental findings on spine MRIs. They are generally of no concern, so much so that some radiologists might not bother mentioning them on the report. From a radiologist's point of view, calling a hemangioma atypical would indicate that the hemangioma doesn't completely fulfill all of the classic imaging criteria,but is still likely a hemangioma. ...Read more
