Mri scan brain photos

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan brain photos


I will be getting an mri done (hopefully soon) but of course I am impatient and want info yesterday. I had a CT scan with contrast, then they took out the IV and did another scan of my head. This is what my report said: Small ill-defined area of increased cortical/subcortical density and apparent enhancement within the anterior aspect of the right frontal lobe. Everything else was fine. It said unknown etiology and recommended mri with and without contrast. What are the possibilities here?
Most places are trying to go to CD so if yours is on film you won't be able to do this. Typically MRI machines are 1.5T STRENGTH. Open MRI range from 0.5T to 0.7T STRENGTH. I'm not sure if it would be on your films or not. I would asked next time or I went to a website that told what strength it was. The problem is that the better machines (the 3T) are few and far between. Most hospitals do not have them. I will be soon going to a university hospital that advertises having a 3T, 7T, & 8T.
There are 10 further Brain MRI photos from different angle i can provide if requested, kindly help me diagnose what my father is going through so we can help him
I was wondering if these MRI photos look normal to you doctors. I did some basic comparisons to other peoples MRI image results that have MS, aneurysms, and, skull fractures. I had a head injury and fell down an entire hard wooden set of stairs (about 15 steps) and bashed my head off the edges of multiple steps sliding down on my back with my legs in the air. After this I had severe headaches in the back of my head and they were found to be migraines.
Hello Sorry photo isnt clear but I took a digital photo of the scan. Had MRI yesterday and they gave me a DVD as well. They said report was going to Dr so havent seen him yet as waiting for report to be sent to him Im not sure how to upload the DVD so hence the photo of the scan This pic maybe clearer I had the MRI as I have sinus problems.
I need some Advice from a doc or neurologist...Doc said MRI of brain was normal the pic show one of my MRI photos. I thought anything that showed white was considered abnormal? Any scans I looked up the lateral ventrical was black but in mine the Lateral ventrical shows this almost white color in all photos, with and without contrast. The rest of my brain shows grey except a few white spots but again the doc said it was normal?
Must have done that when I was a tiny. The brain MRI looks unexceptional apart from upper cervical issues that don't look right to me. The xray from last Dec though is a bit of a roadkill mess. Lots and lots of anomalies, worse than I expected. I can't believe that the nice neuro wasn't interested even to take a glance at it. It seems pretty obvious to me, even as a lay person, that this much mess would cause all the sx I have. The MRI/As will be more helpful I'm sure. More waiting then...
Check my personal space for pictures of my spinal MRI. As expected, they are grainy and hard to read, especially since I have no idea what I'm looking at. I can look at these, though, and see stuff that looks like it's not supposed to be there. And stuff that's there that shouldn't be there. Thoracic #2 Two patchy areas of lighter gray (indicated by arrows) Thoracic #1 Two bright areas that look like lesions at the dorsal area of the cord.
I had a cat scan and the radiologist said questionable bilateral cerebellar tonsillar ectopia, but the MRI results indicated nothing about it. I think mine looks like an image that I have seen online of CM, but mine just isn't as pronounced. I see a neurologist on March 4th...
I've now been sent to a neurologist for an MRI scan, but I haven't been told for what. The ophthalmologist just said I could have elevated cranial pressure. I'm terrified that he suspects a brain tumor. I have no other symptoms however, and feel completely fit and healthy. This all seems to be coming out of no where and it is terrifying. What could be wrong with me and why am I having all of these tests done when I feel fine?
Here are the two paragraphs on MRI and SPECT, in full, but without the accompanying photos of scan results: ======================================== 'a. MRI 'Unlike SPECT and PET images which assess brain function, MRI captures the physical structure of the brain. Inflammatory abnormalities in the brain are also assessed with MRI scans. In children with neurologic Lyme disease, the MRI may reveal white matter hyperintensities suggestive of inflammation or areas of demyelination.
I have been looking over my MRIS (just got copies of recent ones yesterday) in preparation for finding a new neuro. I was told there were no changes between first and second brain MRI. Looking at it myself, on the Axial Diff. images of the second scan, there are two very distinct white dots in the "bump" (don't you love my technical language?) right under the curve of the corpus callosum. I checked and these are not on the first brain mri.
Right now, you should be seeing a Neurologist or a Neurosurgeon at the earliest. These are definite symptoms of brain dysfunction. Has your physician seen the MRI images at least ? I would suggest you should write an urgent letter to him requesting for a Neurologist's opinion. You can express yourself better when you write. Please keep me posted. I am worried.
If you want to look at the photos I posted on my personal page there is one (in the public domain) of a PET scan of a brain with a person with schizophrenia and there are massive deficits in the area of the brain that processes thoughts. I may undergo a PET scan myself to see if a person on the next generation antipsychotics does not have or has less of those deficits but that would be in a clinical journal if published so I couldn't post that.
i think that all the activity of the brain is in the frontal lobes it shows up in a MRI of how a brain functions; my MRI did not show this it was negative.
For two days now, I have been looking up photos of MRI's of normal brain, and one with lesions, to compare what my photo looks like more... It is definately hard to tell and you have to know what your looking for, I can see a big white glowing spot in the back part on my brain, and have no clue what to make of it being that my MRI's are considered normal.. My docs. never went over them with me, they viewed them privately and came back to say 'NOT MS".
Hey, the teaching hospital by me has a 5 Tesla MRI; I wonder if lesions would show up in your brain with something like that? Elaine's Craig said that he thinks that a MRI with that strong of magnetic pull would be hard on the body at a cellular level. Sometimes I think I'd like to risk it if it would give a more clear picture of what's going on with me.
I started having mild sensory symptoms in 2003, and because of my family history, had a brain MRI which showed multiple punctuate white matter lesions, which were reportedly “of concern” for MS or could be vascular disease or migraines. Negative LP, negative VEP, negative blood work. All mimics else ruled out, to my knowledge. I also just had a cervical spine MRI, which came back clean.
Off balance when walking lightheaded/dizzy ALL the time tingles and numbness in arms/fingers and cheeks sensitivity to light/blurred vision/halos can't sleep anxiety/panic attacks depression soreness just under ribs FATIGUE I tested positive for initial lyme disease blood test and then with a further test it came out negative I had a CT scan of the brain and spinal cord which came out clean... Would lyme show up if it was effecting my brain?
I name it Brain, or some such, and save it. I then go to a program that I can work with photos in, and import the Brain file. I then crop the picture so my personal info doesn't show, and save it as Brain 2. When I upload a picture to my MedHelp page, I browse and find Brain 2, open it, and voila, I've uploaded my brain picture for all to see. I hope my memory is correct, and your software is similar, so you can give this a try. Hope all your dreams were sweet!
I see lesions on these that were not visible on my last mri on (1.5 telsa) I was hoping the scan time would have been shorter but it wasnt. I also see lesions on my sag flair images that were not on the mri in 2007. Images should be viewable under my profile photos.
I would not waste your time with an open MRI machine. My first MRI was completed on an open MRI and revealed no lesions. Subsequent MRI on a 1.5 closed MRI machine with contrast revealed lesions. In my case, the open MRI hindered my diagnosis and was quite expensive. They were not strong enough for a doctor to use to help with a diagnosis of MS. My first neuro (not so great of neuro) said I couldn't possibly have MS because I had no brain lesions.
I just posted my latest MRI result in my photos. It's so insane. Monday I'm having a shunt revision and then back to the neurosurgeon on the 17th to discuss what's going on. My regular doctor wanted me to see a headache specialist but the neurosurgeons nurse said to hold off. My head has felt worse than it did before my first surgery. I wanted to blame it on allergies. Then shunt settings. It will be interesting to see what the month brings. How are you tested for EDS?
Last October I had an MRI and the MRI showed a few lesions on my brain, but not enough for my neurologist to really be concerned at that time--he wasn't suspecting anything real neuro-related....then, based on different blood tests he ordered, I was diagnosed with a vitamin b12 deficiency and the symptoms went away (somewhat) after I began taking my supplement b12. Well, it is almost as if I've" relapsed" and the symptoms are just as bad, if not worse..

Hi there, I just recently had a MRI of my brain in January 2010 and I saw something that perked my curiosity. And, although I do have an appointment to see a neurologist for other reasons, it's still a couple months out from now. The thing that caught my eye was a bit of matter that appears to be an extension of the brain behind and almost below the cerebellum (see the photo I linked).
The neurologist wants him to have an MRI but my husband is refusing and will only get Brain scan done. His personality is slowly changing . Some days are good and other days he is mentally dull,, almost dazed. His memory is pretty good considering but has become a compulsive liar . He has not had any testing to determine a diagnosis as he is still high functioning .in most aspects of his life. Where do we go from here ? I would like to have a diagnosis .
I had an mri scan as my dr thinks i have ms, the photo's are on my profile and clearly show lots of white spots. However my dr said the scan was negitive, and was completely fine. Does anyone know what would cause the white spots on my mri, and how are the white spots from ms different?
I've had a head and cervical MRI before, but never a thoracic till yesterday, which was my pre-op scan. I have chiari 1 with a 15mm herniation, according to my recent brain scan. I'm wondering what you guys think of my scan that I got yesterday. It seems like they zoomed in on this area? Do you see anything out of the ordinary? What are those little dark spots on the far right, in my CSF, anyone know? I don't have the radiology report yet so I'm not sure what the findings are. Thanks so much!
I have some comparison photos in my mass of photos of my brain about the same area on a 1.5 machine and then on a 3T machine; big difference! If you want to take a look, they're probably around page 5 or 6 of my photos, as I love to take and post pictures.
