Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan of ms brain


Avatar f tn Hi fellow Ozzie, welcome to our little MS community, Please keep in mind that we are lay people, not professionally trained in reading MRI's, opinions are generally from personal experience, acquired knowledge and interest, my two cents......
13766472 tn?1431393364 I have been having horrible headaches on the side of my head and bottom of the back of my skull. This is why the scan was done.
Avatar f tn Can you please explain my MRI of the brain done with and without contrast please: On T2 weighted and FLAIR sequences, there are multiple subcentimeter round ovoid foci of high signal in the right frontal lobe periventricular white matter, in addition to several subcentimeter lesions in the periventricular and subcortical white matter in the left frontal lobe and the subcortical white matter in the posterior right frontal lobe.
Avatar f tn what does small scattered foci of hyperintensity on a brain scan indicate
Avatar f tn m pretty sure that for vanilla MS it can infact be diagnosed now based on the MRI finding of two of more objective lesions - one old, one new. But to the question 'do I have MS?' Well we'd have to refer you to your neuro. My MRI report said that I satisfied the criteria for MS and my neuro confirmed this by offical diagnosis when I saw him.
Avatar m tn I had a cat scan of the brain in 99. I was experiencing head aches, uneasiness in my legs, unsteady balance, arms and legs would go to sleep often. The symptoms would come and go. The scan did show a slight calcification in the region of the right foramen of monro. Would that indicate something to a doctor? Follow up with a neuroligist? Should I have had an MRI instead of a cat scan? I was diagnosed in September with MS after demanding an MRI. Can a neuroligist spec.

When I saw him in November he saw some lesions on my brainstem that were NOT reported by the radiologist. He dx me with Probable MS/demyelinating disease because of my exam, symptoms and history. And of course the brainstem lesions. Since he didn't see any lesions on my brain he couldn't dx me with definate MS.
Avatar f tn My recent brain-spine MRI was just over an hour. The power of the unit is important. You can study the types on the net. Most hospitals claim state-of-the-art for all their equipment, leaving patients pretty much in the dark. Even well-known centers can be weak in some areas. If you aren't satisfied with your improvement, learn more and keep looking for better treatment.
2202709 tn?1338755799 Bubbles, I would call the doc's office and let them know it says ct scan instead of MRI. MRI's are needed for MS findings. It could be a mix up or they may have a reason for ct scan. I've had a sinus ct scan to find cyst etc.but the brain and c-spine was both MRI's. Still lifting you in prayer and best of wishes for answers.
Avatar m tn Hi, About 10 wks ago I had a headache for about 4 days and on the final day I awoke with pins and needles in both hands. The next day I came down with a really bad fever/flu which I can only describe as being like glandular fever. I had this once before as a teenager. Anyway, I could barely swallow, night sweats for about 2 wks. Extreme fatigue. I have had the numbness in the hands in the morning on and off since but it is certainly better now.
1469703 tn?1372041476 Apart from clinical neurological examination, MRI shows MS as paler areas of demyelination, two different episodes of demyelination separated by one month in at least two different brain locations. Spinal tap is done and CSF electrophoresis reveals oligoclonal bands suggestive of immune activity, which is suggestive but not diagnostic of MS. Demyelinating neurons, transmit nerve signals slower than non-demyelinated ones and can be detected with EP tests.
Avatar n tn i have migrain and my last MRI show little white specks on the right side of my brain. Lately the headaches have been on the right side of my head. Do i need to worry about any brain disorder?
Avatar f tn 00 this morning. The Tech told me that they don't use the dye for this scan unless she sees something. After the scan. she rolled me out and said she had talked to the radiologist and he wanted the dye and to scan my thoracic area. Impression from Radiologist report:Extensive areas of increased T2 signal with the thoracic spinal cord. My doctor had this information by noon to me today and said he had faxed a copy to my neuro.....and I thought not again.
12807846 tn?1427329550 Hi there, I'm not exactly sure what she could mean by 'brain shaking', the brain doesn't actually tremor, so it's difficult to come up with what she could be trying to describe, although It's possible her 'perception' of this sensation is the issue because her brain isn't really shaking inside her skull.
Avatar n tn As the differential diagnosis suggests the MRI findings indicate changes in brain that could be due to Lyme’s disease (because of Tick bite you had) or could be due to inflammation of brain blood vessels (vasculitis), degeneration or destruction of myelin sheath of nerves (seen in MS and autoimmune disorders) or due to narrowing of blood vessels causing poor blood supply and poor oxygen supply to parts of brain. Do consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!
Avatar f tn The various causes of brain lesions on an MRI are brain aneurysm, brain arteriovenous malformation, brain tumor, hydrocephalus, stroke, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury. A strong degree of suspicion needs to be kept for multiple sclerosis. . Multiple sclerosis is a chronic demyelinating neurological disorder where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions. It has multiple symptoms and signs and is a diagnosis of exclusion.
Avatar f tn The Neuro said my last MRI was the weirdest and unusual MRI of the brain that she had ever seen. The report said something about Vertebral Basilar Insufficiency and something about an enlarged vessel or something. My brainstem has moderate damage (Chronic Gliosis) and it didn't sound like it was damaged from the MS. Only one MS lesion was present in the right temporal lobe and it hasn't changed in the last 5 years. Nothing new going on with me other than this.
