I have a history of psoriatic arthritis, cervical spondylosis and osteoarthritis of left hip since 2006. The scan results state multiple demyelinating plaques of ms are noted in bilateral periventricular and pericallosal regions arranged perpendicularly to the ventricular axis. A few of the lesions are also noted in the corpus callosum. My question is could this be a strong indication of MS in your opinion.
I went to our local ER and had a cy scan of my head done. It says chiari malformation and noted the shrinkage of my ventricals around my brain. My regular dr. Sent me for MRI (which had to be a special one due to having rods, screws and a spinal stimulator implanted in low back). I got the report and it says chronic ischemia disease and a chiari malformation of 1 cm. they're making me go to the city to see a Nuero surgeon. Someone please tell me if I should be concerned? I'm really scared.
Friends, I had an MRI of my brain today because I was having trouble with headaches. The unfortunate news is that it appears that I have metastatic disease in my brain. I meet with the oncologist tomorrow. I am quite devastated over this but have not lost my faith. God is still in control. I may be off the boards for a bit until we figure out what we are going to do. Thank you all for your support and advice over the last several months. You are a wonderful group of people.
Please and someone help me understanding my MRI results on my spine and pelvis, details as follows: Multiplanar imaging of lumbar spine and pelvis along with coronal STIR images of both SI joints was performed. There is some minor (3-4mm) anterior listhesis of L5 on S1 secondary to what appears to be bilateral L5 pars defects. Normal vertebral alignment otherwise. Desiccated disks and mild disk space narrowing at L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels also.
I have had physical therapy, injections, chiropractic and still have this issue with my hip. My Dr. is now ordering an MRI of my lumbar spine (L-7?) to see if there is a problem that would be causing hip pain. I have experienced back and neck pain as well so it is feasable. I have had terrible pain occasionally where there is what seems to be nerve pain that goes from my hip down the side of my leg to my ankle, could it be sciatica?
This MRI was taken almost 2 years ago. I have had follow-up MRI's the most recent being in JAnuary of this year and the MRI remains the same with no changes. I have also had the entire spine imaged which did not show any lesions. Once again, serial testing of all evoked potentials, EEG, Spinal Tap and numerous clinical exams by 3 neuros have all come up normal. All 3 neuros say this isn't MS but I am left undiagnosed. What else could present like this?
can some one help me understand my MRI. I had a MRI with contrast of the R hip and I fully understand all that is said about my hip but there are other things listed that they now have me going back for another MRI . It reads as follows......

i did a ct scan that just came back today..ct scan of the lumbar spine axial scans were obtained from the superior aspect of T12 down to the S2 level..coronal and sagittal reconstrution were obtained.. the vertebal bodies are normal in height.. there is an intrathecal catheter in position at the D11-D12 level and this projects posteriorly...there is bulge of the annulus of L4-L5 and L5-S1and these indent the dural sac..
You need to get a bone scan or an MRI of your spine to find out what are those patches seen on the chest X-rays. To: eneffeneff: A facet Block is an injection of pain meds and steroids into the facet joint to relieve inflammation and pain. To: Teresa Cadena: Your report does not suggest any severe pinching our your nerves to account for your current symptoms. You may need to get nerve tests: EMG/NCS done.
I found I was requested to have the scan because of hip weakness and bladder problems and that lesions were suspected. The report had no details at all. I complained to the imaging department and they said that the radiologists had hundreds to look through and some didn't bother writing full reports. Told them they were wasting their own money to do such scans and then not report on them thoroughly.
I just recently had an MRI done on back. Can someone tell me if these results would give me the amount of discomfort I'm having? It states that there is a mild leftward scoliotic curvature of the lumbar spine with no acute fractures or subluxation. There is a minimal narrowing at the L5-S1 disk space level. Minimal narrowing at the Lf-S1 disc space level with no acute fractures or subluxation of the lumbar spine. I am constantly bothered with back pain mostly lower to middle.
Your symptoms of pain without tenderness are more typical of nerve impingement near the cord, if symptoms in all four extremities it may be from cervical patology or combination of cervical and lumbar, it may be advisable to scan these areas, in fact your mri report mentions degenerative changes of the upper cervical segments. Regarding the lesion in the left centrum semi-ovale, these are very difficult to categorize, your symptoms are not explained by this finding, at least most of them.
I have been advised by my GP that I will need an MRI scan, I will keep you updated on the results, in respect of my age I am 58, but I expect that there is wear and tear on the right hip. But as i have recently had a gastric by pass I am concerned that the body is not absorbing calcium correctly which may agrivate the situation. However, I appriciate the time you took to answer my question.
I have my results back from the MRI scan. It says that my ovaries look normal and the 5cm cyst that was there, is now no longer there!! This is great news, but I still do have some choices to make. With my family history, my Gyn has left it up to me to either watch and wait (regular vaginal scans and CA125) until I am slightly older (or the reoccuring cysts turn nasty...!
I have been suffering from chronic hip pain for about 8 months. I had THR surgery of my right hip on 1-15-08. I seemed to be recovering at a normal pace until December of 2008. I started experiencing pain in the soft tissue of my right hip. I returned to my orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis. Xrays confirmed the hip was good, to be sure a bone scan was ordered, it also showed that everything appeared normal.
went to the doctor and was told it was sciatica. also had xrays done but don't have those results as yet. Probably my next step is also an MRI.. then will mention steriod shots to my doctor..
I had blood test which showed signs of infection through an increase in the white blood cells (if I remember correctly) My MRI results say I have some facet joint athrology. My SPECT scan results say the following: L4-5 and SI joint degeneration.
An MRI and a CAT scan showed a fracture of the subcortical something or other in the left hip an injury which occurred ten years ago on a ski trip. Osteoarthritis set in and after ten years has worn away all of the cartiledge and now it is "bone grinding on bone" a severely painful condition which limits my mobility and is ruining my life.
had an xray but showed nothing. So doctor sent me for an mri scan which i had on 4/2/2012 and i get my results on the 6/03/2012. Since the day of my scan i have been 100% worse pain is so bad i can barley walk i am also having strange pains and weakness in my left hip and both legs.i have been given cocodamol for the pain but i dosnt help much. Is there any side affects from the scan that could make me worse?
I sincerely hope that nothing less that 3T magnification of (power of the magnet) will be the MRI standard very soon. It seems the costs of MRI's have never decreased as the technology became standard. I know the machines costs millions, but I would have expected the cost to the patient to have gone down by now. Now facilities purchasing the newer, more powerful MRI machines: I would still expect to see the higher prices passed onto the patient.
Ordinarily I just have pain in the inner thigh muscles, from the inside of the knee to the outside of the hip. Right now it's really bad - not only are the usual muscles going off, but I'm having pain at the top of the hip, running over the bone, and my lower back is killing me. It's like I have no strength to hold myself up in the torso. If I slump down and support my torso with my arms on my thighs, or if I lie down, that's better.

If it does not respond he may then ask for a CT or an MRI scan. Regards.
The sensory innervation of the knee interacts with sensory centers that also innervate the hip - so the body gets confused and localized the pain in the knee to the hip - have your right knee checked out. Was your MRI scan of the hip itself - if not this is the best way of looking for soft tissue pathology. Have a physical therapist asses your posture and walking to see if this is contributing to pain.
I have now had another baby 3 months ago and have a fairly large ( over 5cm) lump on my side. I have seen the doctor and had a scan. I was then sent for mri scan last week but I am very concerned and worried about what it could be. Still waiting for my results and going out of my mind with worry. The doctor saw it while I was pregnant and said wait till after the baby is born to investigate, would they have left it 3 months if it had been serious?
Hi I'm a 24yr old female who has had right hip pain for 7 years. Ok, first of all, it started when I was at college - all I did was get up after sitting down and my right hip "locked". I just couldn't move it. Eventually I managed to be able to walk normally and thought nothing of it. This was in 2002. In 2004, it started to click very noisily; I went to a walk-in centre for minor injuries and they said that some girls my age (I was 19 at the time) get clicky hips.
She then sent me for an MRI and an appt with an orthopedist. The MRI showed fluid around the right hip. The ortho said that my symptoms would not be caused by that and scheduled a 3 phase bone scan. Those results showed some activity in that area along with minor osteoarthritis I do not need a hip replacement so I am left with pain that is idiopathic. I am wondering if it is muscular because when I lift my right leg, or turn over at night, I cannot straighten my right leg.
I asked the doctor here in PA if an MRI would be appropriate for images of the prosthetic hip, he would not answer, just gave me a script for an MRI of the hip. I went to the MRI Center and asked, a tech said they do many MRIs on prosthetic hips, the report said no good images were seen because of Artifacts. Why did the doctor not know this, why did the MRI Center not know this?
