Mri scan lumbar sacral

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan lumbar sacral


Avatar f tn In transitional lumbosacral vertebrae, usually the last lumbar vertebra (L5) or the first sacral vertebra (S1) are formed improperly. People are born with this condition. Normally, when the vertebrae develop, they are clearly formed to represent different sections (for example, lumbar vertebrae or sacral vertebrae). In transitional lumbosacral vertebrae, one of the vertebrae does not form as part of the lumbar or sacral area.
Avatar f tn i traveled with firm finger down from left mid buttock Pedundal spot to lower lumbar, upper sacral 4 and5 ...putting tens unit patch along the nerve Pedundal across to spine and left it on a level down from ouch! I left it on for 30 minutes.. it really helped... Tomorrow I will have left lumbar area ablated...I have seen him for 12years and he really tries to help..It really helped to relieve pain in the left celiac-lumbar plexis13 months ago.I had had sacral lft&rt ablation 3 yrs ago..
Avatar m tn Hi, I had a MRI scan a couple of days ago but no one has really explained to me what has happened, I will be reviewed by the spinal team as an outpatient. I have posted the results below and I would really appreciate if someone could explain in non medical terms what is happening. Here's some background info. I have had a recurring bad back for the past 10 years, but at the side of my back. Usually every six months for a couple of weeks at a time then back to normal.
Avatar f tn 2) Sacralization - That sometimes happen, where the shape of the lumbar vertebrae is little changed and the resemble like the sacral vertebrae.There are L1 to L5 lumbar vertebrae after which the Sacral Vertebrae starts.Lumbar and Sacral vertebrae have different shapes.Sometimes the L5 ,instead of resembling its shape, appears like Sacral vertebrae, so we call it as Sacralization. I would suggest you to continue with the medicines and wait.
Avatar f tn Hi could anyone please tell me what these mri scan results mean 3mm high T2 signal on the axial FLAIR in the left corona radiata with no restricted diffusion. Lumbar sacral spine shows early end plate changes. I'm waiting to see neurologist to discuss these results but would love a heads up. Thankyou.
Avatar f tn It is incompletely assessed on this exam and given the history of prior sacral fracture if there is any outside sacral imaging I will be glad to addend my report with comparison or at least correlate clinically with outside sacral imaging. The remainder of the lumbar spine MRI is unremarkable.
Avatar f tn Intense pressure in lumbar/sacral region, pain that radiates down my hip into my bottom and down my thigh into calf, numbness in third and fourth fingers in hands, shooting pains that go up my spine, shooting pains that will occassionally go up my neck into my ear, occassional shooting pains in private area, and stabbing like pains in my lower hips toward my bottom. These symptoms are mostly on the right side of my body, but have also been on my left side this time.
Avatar f tn I finally got a copy of my MRI completed on 1/12/12. It was a total spine MRI without contrast. Cine was also done. Here are some results: -Syrinx extends from C3 to T3. -Except for syrinx the upper part of the thoracic spinal cord, the thoracic images show no abnormality. -The lumbar images show mild early intravertebral disk degeneration at L5-S1 characterized by diminished signal intensity. -Small intra- spinal sacral cysts are present.
Avatar n tn I have had Lumbar MRI, Sacral MRI, soft tissue MRI, CT Scan, XRay and bone scans with NO FINDINGS. No one can find the problem. I am in such pain that I can't hardly walk without screaming out. It feels like someone is stabbing my spine with an ice pick and I scream out. I am 43 and did not injure myself or anything. It started in Sept 07 and I spend most of my time just able to sit. I can't lay down very long due to the pain.
Avatar m tn Multiplanar MRI was performed through the lumbar spine prior to and following intravenous contrast administration. FINDINGS: For the purposes of this dictation, the lowest well formed intervertebral disc space is assumed to be the L5-S1 level, and there are presumed to be five lumbar-type vertebral bodies. At T12-L1, there is a left foraminal disc protrusion which does not cause significant canal or neural foraminal stenosis.
Avatar m tn Before I go on I want to specify that it was a Lumbar MRI. Is there a Sacral MRI or is that included in this? From the handful of X-rays I've seen I've always thought the issue was in my sacral area Here are the results L1-L5 all normal L5-S1: Moderate Disc degenrative signal change and minimal height loss.
Avatar f tn Due to chronic pain and unable to walk and stand and a variety of other symptoms, I finally got an MRI of my lumbar (I've been complaining of my pain in my sacral though) and they found a tiny CFS cyst. The neurologist suggested Syringomyelia but when it didn't go higher into my thoracic he said it wouldn't be causing me any symptoms (I'm in a wheelchair from pain) and I was fine.
Avatar n tn I have herniated discs in my cervical and lumbar/sacral areas. Can this cause pain in my palms of my hands and bottom of my feet?
Avatar n tn So I went through a serious of injections in the lumbar and sacral regions. . . no help there either. Another MRI and the doctor tells me (after I informed him that I have lost my health insurance . . am out of work a month due to pain already. . anyway told me the MRI was the same and couldn't do anything for me. Saw my PCP today and he said it showed several hemangiomas starting at L4-L5. This is a new finding. They are scheduling me to see another surgeon.
Avatar n tn You may need an MRI of the lumbar-sacral area and an EMG. You could have either facet disease or a herniated disc pressing on a nerve root.
Avatar m tn There are seven cervical (neck) vertebrae, 12 thoracic (high back), five lumbar (low back), five sacral (near the base of the spine), and four coccygeal (at the base). The five sacral vertebrae are fused to form the sacrum, and the four coccygeal vertebrae are fused to form the coccyx. In simple English I'll do my best to explain the result of your MRI as I understand it.
Avatar f tn The spine is made up of segments of bone or vertebrae, which are divided by cushioning disks, which the disks keep the bones separated and allow for easy movement. On an X-ray or scan, the bone is round and more solid in color and larger, and then comes the smaller, less solid-appearing round disks. It's sort of like cartilage in a bone joint, it keeps the bones from rubbing against each other.
Avatar f tn All it's saying is that the MRI is of the five vertebrae in the lumbar spine. Each section of the spine consists of a certain number of vertebrae. The cervical spine (neck) consists of 7, the thoracic spine (chest) consists of 12, and the lumbar spine (from about the waist down) consists of 5. The MRI you had was of the lower (lumbar) spine and the 5 vertebrae that make it up.
Avatar f tn Prostatitis-like urogenital pain is the hallmark of pudendal neuropathy. Diagnosis is by diagnostic block, MRI, CT scan, and Pudendal Nerve Motor Latency Test (PNMLT). Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn MVA was in 2006 - just had my MRI done in 2008 the results show the following: C3-C4: disc bulge; C4-C5: small central disc protrusion; C5-C6: central/right parcentral disc ostephyte protrusion impinging the right existing nerve root; C6-C7: central/left paracentral disc ostephye protrusion; C7-T1: disc bulge; L5-S1: central/right paracentral disc ostephyte protrusion impinging the right existing nerve root; L4-L5: central disc ostephyte protrusion.
