Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan neck results


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 Ask your Dr if an MRA would be best and then depending on those results, possibly an MRI Cine. There is much speculation at this point but enough to indicate the need for further testing. I remember the first results I read indicated a possible aneurysm in a very dangerous location ... etc. Turns out its Chiari. CT results are often preliminary findings. Hopefully you will get some much needed good news soon.
Avatar m tn Hello. I recently had an mri of head and neck after experiencing bouts of dizziness, tingling, numbness and burning of joints. I also had a very slight droop in my mouth which has now gone back to normal. Occasionally, i also suffer from slight blurry vision. I had a thorough Neuro check at the hospital which I seemed to pass. I also had a two hour eye exam to rule out vision problems.
Avatar n tn I have problems in my lumbar area. Recently my neck pain has been HORRIBLE. I had an MRI and the results say "annular tear at c4-c5 and c5-c6. Mild shallow disc protrusion at c5-c6 and overall noncompressive. No significant central canal or forminal stenosis. No large protrusion oe extrusion of disc material". The pain is terrible and I have limited mobility in my neck. I also have right shoulder pain? Can anyone translate a little for me.

Avatar f tn there is evidence of a prior left temporal craniotomy. there is some encephalomalacia associated with the lateral aspect of left temporal lobe. gyriform T1-weighted hyperintensity is present in this area, comsistent with methemoglobin deposition. this would be compatible with prior traumatic and/or surgical injury. with respect to the temporomandibular joint, there is evidence of anterior dislocation of the disc, with relocation on mouth opening.

Avatar m tn Hi I received my MRI scan results and the specialist scared the life out of me. No treatment at the moment as my symptoms have improved slightly. I am to manage my symptoms but if they worsen I would have to call emergency services and require surgery.
Avatar m tn You need to go for an X-ray and Scan and if required MRI to diagnose your neck problem. The pain might also be due to some other problem, Eg infection, Tuberculosis etc. A visit to an orthopaedician will help in diagnosing if you have any problem with the neck muscles. We advise you to follow up with a Physician for proper diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar f tn hi, I will tell you my experience, maybe it will help you. for 4-5 years I was haveing back pain, lower back, the past 2 years it was so bad I couldn't even put up a christmas tree. I remember sitting in the floor crying, and this past year, whatever the grandkids put on the tree, thats how it stayed. I got an mri which showed protrusion of disk L4-L5 and some minor nerve problems. that is what they said. they gave me the epidural injections and that was a joke.

Avatar f tn I had my first MRI scan today with contrast of brain and spine, suspected MS. Have been told results take about two weeks. If it was a tumour would I hear sooner. I live in Britain .
Avatar n tn My neuro is sent the written report of the MRI results. When I see my neuro for follow up, I bring the MRI disc. He looks at it then, and reviews it with me. I only get a copy of the radiologists report if I ask for it. Sorry you are feeling stressed out. If you want to share more of your story, perhaps others on this site can offer suggestions/support of how to move forward in getting help.
Avatar f tn There is very little in the mroning and as i begin my households and return from office, the pain increases. I was asked to go through MRI scan. The results say that there is dehydration on all the six discs from c2 to c7. My doctor said there was no problem and i have to go through phesiotherepy. I would like to know what exactly is dehydration in the discs and how can i strengthen my neck. I developed this with the mouse usage and improper posture at workplace.
Avatar m tn I have done an MRI from my neck 2 years ago and a CT scan from my head (no dye was used). They both came back normal. I’m very worried about having a brain tumor. Does it sound like a brain tumor or could I just be suffering from tension headaches and tight neck muscles?
551343 tn?1506830518 The x-ray doctors wondered whether there has been a problem with one of the blood vessels in your neck and they have recommended a further MRI scan with an injection of what is known as Gadolinium, which helps mark the blood vessels in more detail.
Avatar f tn He went to his cardiologist for the third time, bringing his ultrasound and CT scan results. The scan said he had enlarged lateral ventricle, which could be normal or early communicating hydrocephalus. This time, his cardiologist referred us to a neurologist to look into his CT scan results. When he went to see his neurologist, he was subjected to some clinical examinations --- tapping the arms, knees, checking his vision, etc. Nothing remarkable with his reactions to these.
Avatar m tn When it comes to looking at neck lymph nodes, which would be more accurate or more telling? A few weeks ago I went for a CT scan on my neck. The results said I had about 5 slightly enlarged nodes but in normal size range and there was no Necrosis/dead cells which I have heard is a good sign. Now I'm wondering if those results could be wrong and if they could be inaccurate because I heard that an MRI takes deeper pictures than a CT does. Any info would be great.
Avatar f tn Thyroid nodules were discovered on MRI of cervical spine and recommended that I have thyroid scan. I just got my results today and wondering about enlarged lymph nodes. I had partial thyroid removed over 20 years from single tumor on left side. Here are my results and wondered if lymph nodes would have anything to do with thyroid nodules. The right thyroid is mildy prominent and measures 5.2 cm in legnht.
