Mri scan knee problem

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan knee problem


Avatar n tn He has had x-rays, a bone scan, and we are waiting for an MRI result. He shows one sign of hip displasia, the crease behind his right knee is higher then the left, but the x-ray and bone scan shows there is none. he has no bone fractures and the doctor is bafled by his limp. THe only reason the MRI is being done is because I insisted on it. Is there anyone else out there with the same problem or any other testing ideas to help find out what is wrong with my child?
Avatar f tn Are there any other tests that might show if there is a problem with the knee cap. Can an MRI be done with TKR, or a Ct Scan or bone scan? Thank you for any advice.
Avatar f tn hi had mri 29th dec noticed radiologist point and show other radiologist then came in asked who ordered scan my doc or a neuroilogist seemed strange havent got results yet but only been wk
Avatar f tn Thank you for your response, i have recently recieved mri result which stated inpingment in the hip. My doctor doesnt feel that this is causing the knee pain and still wants to wait for bone scan results. Do you think that the inpingment could be causing all the left bones to be tender to touch? I am still getting shooting pains in my left groin which feel like period type pains going down the top of my leg.
Avatar n tn This is pain due to nerve irritation and could be sciatica though this travels from thigh to knee, compressive neuropathy due to prolapsed intervertebral disc, nerve compression at the hip joint. It is advisable to undergo an MRI scan spine to check for any disc lesions, bony spurs, spondylolisthesis etc causing compressive radiculopathy. You might need an MRI knee or an arthroscopy of knee to look for any bony spurs etc irritating the nerves.
Avatar f tn You make an appointment to see your doctor, who will examine the knee and will probably send you for an xray or an ultrasound scan (or MRI) depending on what the doctor decides may be the cause. You will also need a referral to a physiotherapist to give you specific exercises to do on the knee. Doesn't sound good with you "cracking" your knees in the morning. Forget about different procedures at the moment.
Avatar m tn Yes i am almost certain that your 2nd reason could be the problem. I have had an MRI scan on my knee and my consultant advised that my knee looks completely normal. All my tendons, ligaments etc look in perfect condition. From researching online, i have read that about 80% of people who have IM nailing done complain of knee pain, which is usually due to the incision that surgeons make through the patella tendon in order to put the nail in.
Avatar m tn This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor. Other possibilities are bursitis (inflammation of fluid filled sac over joints), tendonitis (inflammation of cords joining muscles to bones) or due to weakness of patellar bone.
Avatar m tn I can lie on my left side as long as I have a pillow between my legs, and even then I need to move my legs every few seconds/minutes (depending on the severity of the pain). I have had CT scan of back, MRI of back, xrays of hip, knee, foot, ultrasound of groin.. all came back normal. This started when I was masturbating and felt a dull pain in my right groin.
Avatar f tn Back at the beginning of december i injured my knee. I had been about to kneel down when my leg gave out and i landed on my knee with it bent in a very awkward way. I had swelling and great amounts of pain and dull ache and after seeing a doctor in A&E was booked for an mri scan and put into a lockable brace which i wore for around 6 weeks as he was sure i'd suffered mcl injury. The scan showed no cartilage damage and no real mcl damage which was suspected.
Avatar f tn A good physiotherapist should be able to diagnose you. An MRI of the knee would be the next best thing if a soft tissue injury (as i have outlined above) was suspected.

Avatar n tn Especially when she moves or walks, she says her both bottoms(where she sits), sometimes hips are hurting so much. Does she need to have MRI or tomography and can she use MRI or tomography with her replacements? Her knee replacement brand is Zimmer and four components: Zimmer, NextGen, Complete Knee Solution, Legacy Knee-Posterior Stabilized LPS-Flex Femoral Component Option Size D, Right.
Avatar f tn It will require more advanced imaging than an x-ray to diagnosis your knee pain. An MRI will provide a better detailed picture of the structure of your knee. I encourage you to request one. In my opinion you may also benefit from an Orthopedic Consult. Be assertive. I hope you'll let us know how you are doing. We'll look forward to hearing from you soon.
Avatar n tn Do you have any back pain or muscle weakness in your legs? You may need a mri or ct scan. It sounds like you may have a pinched nerve. This could be very serious if you have back pain along with the numbness. Go to your doctor and get it checked. It could be leading up to serious problems. There is a chart on my profile that shows the nerves and what they control. It may give you a idea of what the problem could be. Best wishes.
Avatar m tn i am also unable to sleep with a blanket over my knee at night, otherwise it disturbs my sleep. i have had about 3 mri scans, 1 ct scan, numerous xrays, and 1 ultrasound. i've seen upwards of 10 orth. specialsts, all of them had told me that nothing had shown up on the scans and that they didnt know what the problem was even though it had obvious swelling and discolouration. but a few doctors have said it may be a disease called crps (chronic regional pain syndrome).
Avatar m tn Okay, hopefully this doesn't turn out too long. I'm NOT looking for a diagnosis, obviously. I just need opinions. And yes, I have seen a doctor about this and so far have gotten nowhere which is why I am on here asking for ideas. I have had a "bad knee" for about six years now (as far as I can remember it's been since 2007). My knee pops a lot, especially when I bend down; I can actually HEAR it crunching and popping!
Avatar m tn Tell them your history and insist on another MRI with contrast and a CT scan. Second, third, fourth opinions, whatever, is always a good option. If you are not satisfied with the answer you are given, find another doctor until you find one that listens to you and cares about what you are going through. It could be something small that they are missing. Ask for the best radiologist to read your MRI and CT scan and ask them to spend more than 5 minutes reading all 36 images of the MRI.
Avatar n tn er and swimmer I am pretty fit and active in every other way, and do not experience any other pain in any other knee position or activity with my knees. There is no pain inside my knee joint or to the sides or behind my knees. When I press my fingers on my knee I can feel that is a bit grissly in small areas with some sensitivity. Any ideas on the reason would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn your problem sounds just like mine.
