Mri scan hips

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan hips


Avatar f tn However, my X-Ray shows partical disease and loosening. I have spoken to a radioligist, and he said it would show up normal on a MRI or Cat Scan b/c there will be black showing up and it will not be detected on those images. He advised that only an Xray would show the true definition of my pain and problems. Is this correct?
Avatar n tn Hi I am 45 years old and I am having leg pain and also lower back pain that radiates down into my groin and hips. I have had and CT scan that the doctor said was normal. Can you please tell me what may be going on. The tops of my legs hurt more that the bottom.
Avatar f tn Since them i have been having all sorts of problems, which i feel are getting worse as the days go on, I may have a couple of days where i do not feel so unwell but all the pains and sensations are still there.
Avatar f tn I also agree with shinty, ask for some tests to be done, once you have a diagnosis, your doctor will be able to treat you with better results. good luck to you.
450140 tn?1317947304 I called for the results of my MRI and they said no changes in brain scan since last time. My doc had them do MRI and xrays of my left hip. Both are showing deenerative changes. Seriously, I can barely walk!! Anyone have any input on this.......... I know from older scans, that I have a bad disc in my neck and in my back. No injuries, so does this have anything to do with MS, or is it totally a seperate issue? My doc is on vacation, or I would have spoke to him about it.
Avatar f tn But it sounds like you are wanting an MRI of your neck, should have your hips problem properly diagnosed, should be in physical therapy I suspect, and are desirous of oral pain medication. So, to basically end as I began, I believe you need to find another physician- one who listens to you.
Avatar f tn for over a year now ive suffered with sharp burning pains in my lower back which progressed to the same sort of pain in my hips and top of my inner thighs...some days are worse than others but on bad days i can hardly walk! after trying different tablets im now on tramadol and beginning to get very frustrated as much as im trying to live my life as normal as i can its beginning to take over my life! the pain in now more and more and days off are far and few between!
233622 tn?1279334905 The way I understand it is a CT scan shows finer detail that an MRI doesn't. I think the CT scan is good for small things like blood vessels and what your doctor was looking for. I do NOT know this for sure. I just remember hearing that an MRI looks at things in a different way than a CT scan. I would post this question under a new post so maybe others will see it and can answer. I have thought about seeing if there is a T3 in my area.
Avatar f tn your hips widen to allow the bub to abe able to engage and go down the birth cannel. Its the hormones that relax the ligiments in your pelvis.
Avatar m tn The only way to truly rule it as muscle spasm is by looking at your MRI scan results or X-ray/CT Scan (resolution is crude with these diagnostic tool) and seeing that your spine is healthy and everything is intact and where it is supposed to be. I also have myfascial pain syndrome (fancy term for chronic muscular pain) and I am also on muscle relaxers. The muscle relaxers I found, relieve the pressure applied to my spine from tight muscular bands of tissue that surround the triggerpoints.
Avatar m tn For the past 11 months I have had under both breast and mid to upper back muscle spasms. Did PT, gone through CT Scan, Bariam scan, MRI, and xrays. All the blood works and NO results for spasms. Been diagnosed with PMR (PolyMyalga Rhuematica) because I have stiffness from shoulders to hips. Treated with Prednizone (which is normal with every Asthma attack). Currently again on tapering Prednizones, Muscle relaxant, Nerve pain meds(which helps me sleep ) Gerd for reflux.
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.
Avatar n tn They can however, detect mental illness such as scitzophreneia which i know because i was diagnosed through an MRI. The only mental illness an MRI scan able detect is an actually different brain connections than that of a normal brain. Ive had one done for mental illess! Can you describe some of your symptoms, what you feel and how often yolou feel it? I know your question is based on needing to know where to get a private MRI scan, which i am unsure of!!
Avatar n tn my wife had a mri scan on her neck the result came back as follows mri on the C- spine showd minor degenerative changes with a normal spinal cord there disc lesion at C6/C7 which corrugates the postrior longitudinal ligament by the spinal cord .
Avatar f tn Is it necessary to have more than one MRI scan done. I have only ever had the one scan, 15 yrs ago which was when I was given my official dx, despite having several episodes/relapses since. Initially told I had RRMS now being told I have SPMS with relapses.
763362 tn?1236624790 I have been referred to Physio and had an initial assesment where the consultant said that it looks like Degenerative Disc Disease, he said the only way to determine this better is by having an MRI scan, on going back to my G.P.
Avatar m tn i have had done mri scan done it shows one small disc is moved but doctor said to me is not worth to operate he recommend massage of spine and back gp will send me to neurology to check nerve system but im still concern about doctors in uk .
