Acute stroke mri

Common Questions and Answers about Acute stroke mri


Avatar n tn Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.
Avatar f tn This is the only MRI done since his initial stroke. The MRI showed old infarct in pons area + acute infarct in anterior portion of corpus callosum + subacute infarct in the other side of the corpus callosum. It also showed lesions in the thalamic portion + basil ganglia. The neurologist resident stated that my dad had a TIA (or stroke) 2 weeks prior to his stroke on February 19,09 (at home-it was never noticed).
745759 tn?1232870315 Today i find out i have had a stroke some time between DEC 8th mri and DEC 30th mri and that kinda scared me and now they say also that an angiogram might be masked for results cause dr put me on the steroids started givimg me blood thinners did a trans echo cardiogram with bubble test
Avatar m tn mean and would a radiologist have written on report if there was an old (chronic) stroke? Would old strokes since birth have shown on this type of mri and would they be written on mri report if found? Would angioma and hemangioma be found on on this type of brain mri and would radiologist have written on report if there was any evidence of them?
Avatar n tn Rapid assessment of acute ischemia is critical for the management of acute stroke patiens who may benefit from thrombolytics or neuroprotective therapeutics. Differentiation of acute from chronic stroke, which may all appear hyperintense on T2- Weighted Imaging(T2WI ), is essential in determining the management of patiens.
Avatar n tn This is MRI result....What does this mean?.how long will it take to start body movement?......
Avatar n tn There are two foci of acute ischemic change involving the left parietal cortex posteriorly. The largest area of acute ischemic change measures 10mm and is best seen on series #6, image #16. There is a very subtle faint enhancement in the more prominent area of acute ischemic change in the left parietal cortex on the post contrast images. Impression-Two small foci of acute ischemic changes left parietal cortex seen. Volume Loss.
Avatar n tn We recently took our 78 year old aunt for an MRI. The MRI was ordered because she had been diagnosed several years ago with Multi Farc Dementia and was starting to have hallucinations. The doctor wanted to see if there had been a change since the baseline MRI was taken in the Fall of 2006. We just received the results and I am not sure exactly what they mean. They read....Significantly limited exam secondary to patient motion artificat.
Avatar f tn If there was evidence of an acute stroke on the MRI, investigation for causes of stroke in a young person (of which there are many many causes including blood clots from various areas of the body including heart and legs, various clotting tendencies including the clotting tendency that occurs in all women around pregnancy but also other hereditary or non-hereditary clotting disorders, and some genetic disorders such as CADASIL and mitochondrial disorders).
338734 tn?1377160168 Went to hospital ER due to stroke symptoms. Had CT and MRI as well as bubble echo. Suggestion of shunt. To follow up with TEE.
Avatar f tn I had a MRI done recently and this was one of the things in the report, can you tell me what it means...
Avatar m tn My sister ( 24 years old) is said to have brain stroke or tumor, though we have an MRI no doctor was sure what that was till Her breathing stopped a month ago in hospital. She is in coma almost a month, I'd like to know that how long a “tumoral mass of the left cerebellar hemisphere with sign of acute hydrocephalus” can last. This is the Isfahan’s MRI agency’s letter which number of Tehran’s doctors comment on.
534785 tn?1329592208 The results from the CT Scan of my head done after I was admitted to the ER on 10/14/08: "History of left-sided weakness and facial tingling. MRI performed at an outside hospital 1 month ago reportedly demonstrated a pineal cyst. (Note: I said my MRI was in JULY, not one month ago!!! I even corrected the nurse on this when he said, "this was done last month?" Ugh!) An unenhanced axial CT of the head was obtained and reviewed in bone, soft tissue, and intermediate windows.
Avatar n tn the ct came back abnormal and i was sent to a neurologist after receiving an mri for the abnormal ct scan. i did not have the radiology report but had copies of the mri. the neurologist said he did not read mris. My internist wants me to have an mra. The mri report read as follows" cranial mri wo / w iv contrast gadolinium is performed for the evaluation of white matter disease. the ventricals and basal cisterns are normal.
Avatar n tn Maybe someone who had a stroke. What does all of this mean? Could I have had a stroke and not know it? Is the extra white matter something to worry about?
2175879 tn?1338355028 I have three MRI's tonight. One for my head, one for my neck (both due to the stroke), and one for my lower back(suspected ruptured disc). I will hopefullly find out what's going on with the stroke/TIA symtoms and definately find out about the very painful back. The MRI's start at 9pm and don't finish till 1am. That's government health care for you. I really would like some closure on the stroke, or atleast something that tells why I had it.
Avatar f tn Furthermore, psychotic episodes may be an acute change like that seen in delirium, stroke, or seizure. Depending on the complete history, including family history, associated symptoms, and clinical examination, imaging findings will likely be in different anatomical locations. As a general rule, MRI is better for looking at anatomy and for pathological conditions (e.g.
803451 tn?1390083422 She ordered Brain and Thoracic Spine MRI on 10-04-2012 and then the cervical spine MRI on 11-15-2012 as an afterthought. She did not even know the protocol for the MRI - scan with IV contrast. God knows how long it will take her to retrieve the cervical spine MRI! Have an appt to discuss medicine on 12/04/12. Will get the script and leave her behind. It took 3 years after I began with her to order 3T MRI! She has seen me 2x in 3 years. She liked my service dog.
