Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan neck images


Avatar f tn Straightening of the cervical lordosis is a straight neck which is also called military neck or cervical kyphosis. If this curvature loss is significant you may experience neck pain/stiffness, shoulder pain and headaches. A traction neck pillow can help with neck pain. Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is not really a disease but this term is used to describe the changes in your spinal discs as you age. The symptoms of DDD vary from person to person and there may be no symptoms at all.
2212869 tn?1339201618 Can someone help me figure out my MRI. I had a neck MRI done June 28 2012. I have neck pain and my right arm is numb off and on. Here are the results of it. PROCEDURE: MRI OF THE CERVICAL SPINE COMPARISON: None. INDICATIONS: Cervicalgia. FINDINGS: Sagittal T2, T1 inversion recovery and axial T2 images of the cervical spine were obtained along with localizer images. The examination reveals the craniocervical junction is unremarkable.
1322693 tn?1308153896 I also have not had a CINE MRI but would like to know if possible blocked or comprimised cfs flow cam be seen on the regular MRI images. My cerebellum seems to be pressed against the back of my skull. Not sure if all the pain and pressure in my head and neck are caused by bad flow or none at all in some areas. I feel like banging my head against the wall on most days. My head is going to explode! At least that what it feels like. I feel like this is slowly killing me.
Avatar m tn A cervical MRI is an image of the neck. The Pancoast tumor occurs below the neck. If the image includes some thoracic vertebrae, then some abnormalities in this area can be observed. If you have some symptoms, then perhaps an investigation is in order. Stay positive.

Avatar m tn Yes, an MRI can produce images radio waves and unlike conventional x-ray examinations and computed tomography (CT) scans, MRI does not depend on ionizing radiation. It seems, generally, the differentiation of abnormal tissue from normal tissue is often better with MRI then x-ray, CT and echo. But the state-of-art CT scan, slice 64 and higher has reduced radiation. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Just to clarify, my question was - Are T1 or T2 weighted images/sequences/scans necessary to see lesions? On my MRI report it says that the T1/T2 sequence was used on my cervical spine but it doesn't specifically say that on the protocol for my brain. That was my confusion but, according to shell, it looks like the protocol was good even though it doesn't specifically say T1 or T2 was used on the brain scan.
Avatar m tn Iv had every test you can which of,they came back normal apart from a xray from a private chiro saying my necks not right. I got my mri brain scan from the hospital that i had done last year in april and it shows my neck.They seem to think iv had it since birth as i had foreceps,i havent had any accidents in my life that could cause this :S. not sure if i trust chiro as after a few adjustments they want me to do cranial therapy,which is ment to be aloud of kak.
Avatar m tn I had a bad auto accident in Nov and after x-rays and CTon my neck A MRI was recomended. My family doc put me off work and told me not to put myself in any position to slip and fall ao hit in the head. The MRI results show the following. APdiameter of the canal at 2-3 is only 11mm. There is a reversal of normal Lordosis. moderate narrowing of the CSF space around the cord and all levels 2-7 have moderate canal narrowing along with foramina narrowing.
Avatar m tn Sometimes a dye may be injected into a vein to highlight blood flow in your arteries and veins, CT angiogram and provide additional detail regarding appearance of brain aneurysm. MRI can create detailed images of your brain and show aneurysm’s location. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar f tn Hi all. I recently had a back mri scan with the use of contrast dye as I had a discectomy November 2018 . I paid for the scan image on cd but haven’t had the results yet. Obviously I’m not medically trained so have no idea what the images look like however I wondered if anyone know what the few blobs are on a image that are next to the spine? As they came back as a white glow.
Avatar m tn How long do xrays and MRIs last? As in how often should I get a bone xray or MRI if I had it in the past? Every year? Every 6 months? 3 months? I had a xray and MRI done about 6 months ago for my neck stenosis and I took it to a new surgeon today for a second opinion. The nurse asked if I had an xray done recently and that's what I provided her. Do you think it was outdated and that I need a new one?
6358958 tn?1380602054 but was recommended to see neurologist who recommended an MRI scan and will be done in few days. am like that for few days now with alterable pain severity. every time I try to cough cleaning my lungs or to breathing deeply. I have a great feeling that it was my sinuses.
Avatar f tn It is a warning sign. Imaging shows abnormalities, but the symptoms and images improve. Might I suggest you ask for an MRI instead of a CT scan. My daughter had a stroke whilst playing volleyball at school. A CT scan was non specific, an MRI showed a massive stroke originating in the MCA decimating the basal ganglia, entire caudate and lentiform areas of the brain. She followed this first stroke with a hemorragic stroke further damaging the brain.
1469703 tn?1372041476 I had a CT scan done on 9/3/2010 due to some bad headaches and vision problems I was having. The report findings on that day are : Examination with multiple transverse sections shows symmetrical findings with no mass, hemorrhage, midline shift, or extracerebral collections. The ventricular system is within normal limits. The calvarium is intact. There is no evidence of acute infaction. Impression : Normal findings.
2081753 tn?1334765685 Thank you. All information is helpful. I have some pictures posted of some of my mri images now. I don't know if maybe you would mind taking a look and just if you don't mind sharing your personal opinion. A nice girl on here noticed one of my posts and mentioned chiari malformation. After that I looked it up as I had not heard of it before, from there it interested me to see what this chiari looked like so I found images of normal, not normal, and post pop.
700067 tn?1332989283 I went in to the PCP today because my pain has gotten worse and this morning I lost control of my bowels. (I am still waiting to see the Chiari specialist.) She sent me over to the hospital for a CT scan and it came back "normal." I know that most people have MRIs and the Cine Flow MRI. Can a CT scan really be helpful? I was hoping she would get me a MRI of my spine since so far I've only had my brain looked at. She did give me gab for the pain.
