Finger anatomy mri

Common Questions and Answers about Finger anatomy mri

finger

10 mm is a centimeter, or about the width of the tip of a regular pinkie finger for most people. 25 mm is enormous, in my opinion. Seems huge. BUT...Shari's MRI report says 2 mm to 5 mm, from what she posted, so not 25. Sounds like a lot of lesions of "worth-noting" size right around that ventricle. Really, the report DOES sound like "classic MS," from all that I've seen and read, with the T2s along the ventricle, around the horn, etc.
42 male Brain MRI w/w/o contrast Sept 2005. Brain Parenchyma: 2-3mm T1 hypointense focus in the right periatrial white matter failed to reveal signal abnormality on the T2 weighted sequences. Finding likely variant. No abnormality of enhancement corresponding to this lesion noted. Brain parenchma otherwise demonstrates normal signal. No signal abnormalities on the difussion weighted sequences or the post contrast enhanced images noted in the cerebrum or cerebellum.
It should be remembered, however, that approximately 5% of patients with clinically definite MS do not show lesions on MRI, and the absence of demyelination on MRI does not rule out MS. Also, since many lesions seen on MRI may be in so-called "silent" areas of the brain, it is not always possible to make a specific correlation between what is seen on the MRI scan and the patient's clinical signs and symptoms.
You need to consult a neurosurgeon for the symptoms who would investigate the anatomy with a cervical MRI. Also to be considered is carpal tunnel syndrome characterized by numbness, tingling in hand and fingers, especially the thumb, index and middle fingers, thumb weakness etc. The doctor would tap the inside of the wrist to elicit an electric shock and an electromyography to confirm if nerves are involved. Treatment would be according to the cause. Hope this helps.
I am sort of bumming there was no change as I have been searching for an answer for almost 2 yrs now I don't want this pain to be dismissed because MRI is same...

At times, I do have full movement of the wrist, but I still feel a dull pain from the little finger to ½ way to the elbow. This pain is intensified near the ulnotriquetral (UT) ligament. When pressure is applied to the UT ligament, a sharp pain is felt. Dr. Casey’s diagnosis: With x-rays, he notices a little arthritis and an old fracture to the ulna side of the wrist (I don’t know which bone). With a MRI, and more x-ray’s, he only noticed arthritis, tendonitis, and Synovitis.
Finally reached to a Neurologist and diagnosed as disc protrusion at C5-C6 level (by MRI Scan) Doctor suggested for surgery and I agreed for surgery and done in 1995. N. Surgeon removed the disc and fused the vertebrates. After one month bed rest, gradually I started my usual life with heavy journeys, as a part of my job and gradually again the pain and numbness started in my left shoulder and chest area. Now I am suffering from left shoulder, arm and ear, nose and left eye pain.
There are a few thin septations in the anterior aspect of the left frontal horn along the septum pellucidum. The contents are isointense to CSF on all sequences, suggestive of small simple intraventricular cysts such as arachnoid cyst. It is either bi-lobed or two directly adjacent to each other and in total measures 1 cm in AP dimension x 5mm in width. There is a small focus of high signal intensity in the forceps minor, adjacent to the frontal horn measuring 5mm.
I was still experiencing shots of pain down my arms About a month later, so my doctor had me get a MRI of my neck. The MRI showed I have small, minimal, and broad posterior disc bulge but does not contact the cord throughout C2-3, C3-4, C4-5, C5-6, C6-7; C7-T1 is normal. By the time I saw my doctor, I began to develop numbness and tingling which spread from my right hand to my whole body, face and all. But mainly my left side is affected.
Also saw neuro-opthamologist , balance and eye tests and MRI of brain. All test came up normal with only a tiny amount of inflammation showing on MRI in maxillary sinus. Asked if that could cause it , he said "no", asked if I needed antibiotics, he said "no". GP rx'd Vitamin D. in April, by June had levels up to 31 and continued. Tested in September at 53. Continued supplementing 4000 IU per day since summer ending.
Why dont you ask the MRI facility to fax the report to your md? then perhaps u can get the results faster.
I was swimming a mile everyday until I had extreme right shoulder pain and numbness and tingling in my rigth thumb and occasionally my index finger. This is in my dominant hand. Upon going to my HMO I was referred for an MRI. I have no clue what caused my diagnosis.I have moderate disc bulge at c5/6 with effaced ant. thecal sac and minimal cord flattening, some disc material extrude to neural exit formina Rt. greater than left. No other problems observed with c spine. This is the wet read.
We had the 19th week scan of babies anatomy and were told that the ultrasound shows baby having inferior cerebellar vermis. There were no other abnormalities detected. We are not sure what this means and were not told how this would affect the child. All we have been told that this is not good and we should be considering the termination of pregnancy. Can anyone let know what this is about as we are not sure in what direction to go. Much appreciated.
Our Health Pages have some really great articles on signs vs. symptoms, the anatomy of a flare, even fatigue. Here is a direct link to the Health Pages: http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/list?cid=36 You can always access these anytime you want through the link in the top right hand corner, too.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can show the anatomy of the wrist but to date has not been especially useful in diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/carpal_tunnel/detail_carpal_tunnel.htm Good luck in your path. I'm hoping it's not just another part of this stupid MeSsy disease!
I can't tell you about why 2 MRI's would give different results because MRI will only show anatomy. The reader of the films differ and that may be the source of the differences. Your description of the MRI indicate that changes have occured in the lumbar part of your spine. These would not give you neck pain. The radiation of pain down your leg might come from the L5 area of spondylosis, especially if the cord was compromised.
I keep seeing dx, diagnose? But the two I am seeing are actually NS. I have a cine mri, brain mri, and another cervical mri wends. The chiropractor I seen at the being of the year is being quite awesome. Stopped seeing him, insurance only covers so many visits, plus it gave me raging head aches, now we know why. But i stopped in to get the reports from when i was seen, and his eyebrows hit the roof when i told him what was going on. he asked if i could bring my by mri to look at them.
I am finding that hard to believe since my job is hurting me so bad so I would like to know your opinion on that, Please. I have a copy of my last MRI it says there is mild facet hypertrophy in C2-3 with no signifcant central canal or neural foraminal narrowing. Then C3-4 There is very small left paracentral posterior disc osteophyte complex, unchanged. Associated mild facet hypertrophy results in mild left neural foraminal narrowing.
Surgery is all about correlating an anatomic lesion with a symptom, so that correcting the anatomy will lead to improvement. In your case, the anatomy is not clearly abnormal but more of an issue is that your symptoms don't correlate. Neck pain can be a result of work, stress, degeneration, or other things. Headaches might be related to neck issues, but not necessarily. Shoulder and arm pain might be related to the neck, but you don't have any pinched nerves.
Yes.. my right eyelid does get heavy and starts to close. It happened right in front of my Primary on Monday. I don't know what causes it but it can be very aggravating! She did the "follow my finger" test and when my eye moved all the way to the right, it started pulsing. No issue moving to the left. Not sure what all this means, but I do have vertigo to add to the mixture :) Still pretty new to this hypo junk. Lots of issues.
I have pain down the inside of my left arm and into my thumb index finger, then my pinkie and ring finger. These are just two of the nerves that can be affected. I also have numbess on the rear of my left shoulder and then, lower, under my left shoulder blade on my back. I have learned this is all nerve related. The problem is that if it is allowed to continue and the imflammation doesn't go down, it can cause permanent damage.
) I recently came upon a new family physician and she agrees this deserves investigation...Finally! I have an MRI in 2 weeks then a consult with my first neurologist.
then proceeded to palpate area again after ripping off the finger of her glove. NEVER RE-APPLIED ALCOHOL AFTER RAW FINGER RUBBED NEEDLE PUNCTURE SPOT ! It happened so fast I couldn't stop her. 3) Kept tourniquet on for all 3 vials, and re entered the 1st vial into the tube after the 3rd vial to "add more blood because the flow started out so slow the 1st time". SEEMED LIKE WAY TOO LONG FOR THE TOURNIQUET...as it is not suppose to be on more than 1 minute.
To be honest the pain that stopped me from riding was between my shoulder blades and would become so intense that I was having trouble taking a breath. So, went to the doctor, had MRI, showed some strain to my rotator cuff, had PT and was discharged. Treated the back pain as well during that time, which was assumed to be related to the way I had compensated for the shoulder.
I agree that the pinky finger and ring finger are usually characteristic of C7. But dermatomes can overlap as well. Also, nerve root impingement can cause muscle atrophy. What sent up a "red flag" to me was the burning she is speaking of. I stand corrected if burning sensations are also symptomatic of muscle imbalances but I have never heard of that being the case.
something is definatley in there Id think other than the obvious anatomy such as intestines...you would benifit from a MRI I know what you mean about the meds yes they help but they are masking the pain not helping you to get a diagnosis,,,I had a problem w my neck and it took me 3 years to get a diagnosis and many trips to er where I think they just thought I was a pill seeker. You need the pain meds for now cause no one is suggesting a diagnois..I wonder could you be consyipated?
I have tingling and twitching nerves in my thumb, fore finger and middle finger and randomly the top of my ring finger! I have been told I just have to wait and see if it heals or if its permanent but the pain is unbearable at times and when I can just about cope with it, its extremely uncomfortable. I cannot drive at the moment and I am a teacher so carrying out my job is becoming increasingly difficult.
I get lost in places i've been all my life, and I can't place faces or names of people and friends who know me I got the results from my latests MRI on friday and the nurse read it off the fax and said on "it's fine to me". So if nothing wrong structurally with my brain, and I'm not taking medication that would cause this, WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME???? ok, I understand that you can't Dx me, but I just need some hugs, as I'm trying not to lose it here.
My symptoms prior to surgery were nerve pain into my head (both sides of neck, and left side of head), collar bone pain, pain down between my shoulder blades, left foot nerve pain, left shoulder, arm, hand, and finger pain. My right hand started to develop the familiar finger pain this summer and the neck stiffness increased. I didn't have to do anything to aggravate the symptoms. Carrying a handful of weeds in my left hand made my left bicep hurt.
