Mri scan brain tissue

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan brain tissue


Avatar f tn If there was a previous head injury,then a cranial CT scan may be the scan of choice. MRI is superior than CT scan in evaluating soft tissue changes within the brain and nearby structures. It may note inflammation or swelling which may suggest further evaluation. What was the indication for your scan? What symptoms do you have? Was there any prior trauma or injury to head or neck?
4267989 tn?1351969287 There is over a life time a loss in brain tissue in these areas in schizophrenia and bipolar as recent research has noted. However this effect can also occur and more markedly so in long term neurological disabilities that specifically effect and cause deterioration in brain functioning and tissue loss. It would depend on what the specific diagnosis is as to what the follow up would be.
745783 tn?1267545626 Hi, It is difficult to comment without knowing your complete medical history and looking at the test reports. The report reflects loss of brain tissue in the frontal region along with the cerebellum. Scatty results on EEG indicate minor changes in the EEG which may or may not indicate seizures.
Avatar m tn a focus of T2 hyperINTENSITY means that the signal from that area has different tissue characteristics compared to normal brian tissue. Usually this is due to an increased water content of the tissue. Pathological tissue usually has more water than normal brain so this is a good type to scan to pick this up However it does not reveal any information about what it is although the site and pattern of abnormality does.
Avatar f tn Can you please explain my MRI of the brain done with and without contrast please: On T2 weighted and FLAIR sequences, there are multiple subcentimeter round ovoid foci of high signal in the right frontal lobe periventricular white matter, in addition to several subcentimeter lesions in the periventricular and subcortical white matter in the left frontal lobe and the subcortical white matter in the posterior right frontal lobe.
Avatar f tn Specific absorbtion rate, or SAR is a measure of the energy deposited into the body by an MRI. This desposited energy results in tissue heating. Everybody needs their brain cells warmed up a few degrees, right? A 3T MRI has a shorter scan time and there is less heating of the brain tissue. So ask which scanner they are going to put you on. CAT scans are yesterdays technology. The nausea you experienced is a hallmark of a concusion.
Avatar f tn Headaches after a brain injury can also be due to concussion, and normally CT and MRI are normal. However, yes, MRI should be done to rule out brain injury as the cause. Stress due to concussion and brain injury can also be the cause. Also get your blood pressure checked. Take care!
Avatar n tn I had a brain mri scan for recurrent 'auras' thought to be due to migraine. The result of the scan came back normal except for a few spots of plaques. I am 50, is this normal? I am concerned that it is indicative of early degeneration associated with dementia.
1545021 tn?1322477485 Hi there. MRI with contrast is required since it provides more detailed images of tissue. It is more sensitive to detect tumors since tumors absorb the contrast agent and glow. Abnormalities would be picked in a non-contrast enhanced scan as well and a contrast scan is done if an abnormality is picked up in a non-contrast scan.
Avatar f tn Hi, last year I had an MRI scan. I was having it as the Dr was looking to see if I had an AVM on the brain, I get a lot of headaches and have an AVM on my right forearm. When I went to see the Dr he told me my results, he said there is a malformation there but it isnt an AVM. He then pointed to the temporal lobes and said they are low. I should of asked him what that meant, but I never ask questions when Im there, I just say to myself I should of asked this and I should of asked that.
Avatar f tn I have had Lupus for overt 10 years and it has been mild. But about 1 1/2 months ago I started having trouble thinking, memory loss, very forgetful, cant get to info in my head I know is there. And just being so absent minded that I can't even drive. I feel like I'm not all there. My Doctor said he thinks my lupus is attacking my brain and I need a CT.
Avatar n tn White spots appearing on an MRI scan for an 18 year old, with severe stomach problems.
Avatar n tn Just had an MRI after a bout with vertigo. Brain scan clear, but was told I have 'soft tissue swelling or possibly a cyst' in the back of my throat. Can anyone help clarify what this means? Feeling very worried. ** Also my blood pressure is pretty high right now too-- higher than normal- bottom number between 99 and 103 in the past 24 hours). Thank you.
Avatar n tn is basically an extreme variation of veins draining normal brain tissue in that region. That is, a venous angioma (DVA) by itself is not necessarily "abnormal"; it's rather a variation of normal." They can be symptomatic, or not... but the symptoms that I read are more along the lines of the headaches, not the itching. I used to get a lot of skin infections when my immune system was down - lot of it was yeast. It is hard, but somehow you have to stay dry.
Avatar m tn Hello guys, i ve been setup for a brain mri this coming monday as i was at the nuero dr.s office yesterday explaining my symptoms and going through a short nuero exam which i question is does a brain scan pickup about 95% of the cases involving ms.2.Since its only been two months since my symptoms presented itself is that long enough to show anything, is there a window per say.3.since my symptoms involve my legs cramping. feeling stiff, tiring easy...

Avatar f tn i had an mri scan and was told i had a right A1 segment hypoplastic. what does this mean please?
Avatar n tn Is this true? Is an MRI of the brain good enough, or do I need an MRI of the skull? also, would an MRI of the cervical spine show if the brain goes into the cerbellum?
Avatar f tn I had a cat scan and blood test that showed a lesion on my brain. My doctor the had me get an MRI brain scan which his nurse said came back normal. Then why do I still feel like my brain has been scrambled ,and I just don't feel good overall?
