I have a spinal tumor at L4 and a recent abdominal x-ray shows an enhanced area at this location of spine surrounded by dark (unlike rest of spine). Could this be my intradural, extramedullary tumor?

Maybe

Abdomen
By your description, a purely intradural, extra medullary tumor of the spine, by definition would exclude a bone tumor. Exceptions would include a tumor that started in the place you describe and spread to involve the bone, a bone tumor that has spread into the space or a tumor that is calcified so it looks like bone in a 2D plain X-ray. A CT/MRI or other imaging would likely provide the answer.

xray

Is a clearly defined black loop in the mid-left bowel on abdominal x-ray significant if a previous x-ray five days earlier did not show the loop?

Not likely

Abdomen_x-ray
what you are describing is just an air-filled loop of bowel. This is a normal finding and because the bowel contents move constantly, it is normal that this would change from day to day.

Can u see intestinal obstruction with an abdominal X-Ray?

Yes

Open-uri20121212-30528-1u4aslj
Air usually accumulates in the intestine upstream from a point of obstruction. This pattern can be well visualized on plain abdominal x-rays, especially when the images are taken with the patient standing and laying down. We call this x-ray an OBSTRUCTIVE SERIES. However, the gold standard for diagnosing an obstruction is a CT scan.

Dr. Elden Rand answered:

Why would someone need an abdominal x-ray and an "echo of the back abdominal wall'?

Abdominal symptoms

Abdomen
The tests of abdominal xray and "echo" of the back of the abdominal wall (probably abdominal ultrasound) are typically used to evaluate abdominal symptoms or concerns. The xray can provide information on the status of bowel distension, presence of stones, etc, and the abdominal ultrasound can provide info on kidney, liver, gallbladder, pelvic organs, etc.

What is the definition or description of: Abdominal X-ray?

Abdominal X-ray

Gastroenterologist
Plain x-ray of the abdomen. The film can show the overall pattern of the intestines , stomach & liver. If there is a perforation (puncture) of the intestine or stomach, the x-ray is useful for showing "free air." If the intestine is obstructed(blocked) this may be seen as significant enlargement of the intestine due to air & stool which cannot pass .

What does a dark, cauliflower shaped spot on my abdominal X-Ray mean?

Where is the spot?

Open-uri20120730-589-jp60z5
Abdominal plain films encompass almost the entire abdomen including the gut and solid organs, as well as bony structures. Where was the spot in question, and what was the official radiologist reading of your films? (Both pieces of info will help us provide you an answer).
