Mri scan of shoulder images

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan of shoulder images


Avatar f tn I had a shoulder decompression and rotator cuff tear repair about 5 years ago, A few months ago I had a ultrasound which showed a full thickness tear, bursitis and osteoarthritis, went to see a ortho surgeon who then got me to have a MRI scan. The scan showed no tear but alot of fluid in the shoulder, he called it a angry shoulder? Is it possible for a MRI to be wrong? If not what is with the fluid in the shoulder? can someone please help.
Avatar f tn After it was read by the radiologist, they immediately scheduled him for a CT scan of the shoulder and a PET scan. The tech told my brother to stay in the waiting area so the radiologist could speak with him.
2212869 tn?1339201618 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. Medial aspect of the posterior fossa of the brain is normal in appearance. Spinal cord is normal in course, caliber, and signal. Vertebral bodies are normal in height and alignment. There is no edema.
Avatar m tn Yes, these images suggest a posterior labral detachment, but without the remainder of images a definite diagnosis is impossible.
Avatar n tn That is crazy - the neuro should have given the orders to do the MRI to look for demyelinating disease. And a neuro who is worthy doesn't use the radiologist's report, but reads it for him/herself. They are the ones who don't want to be influenced and want to make up their own dx. It is my understanding that lesions can show up, regardless of what type of MRI protocol is done - that's how so many of were discovered to have lesions in the first place.
Avatar m tn It makes no difference whether it is closed bore or not. The imaging principle remains the same. It is the contrast agent that enhances the images. While not all MRIs require contrast, it can be very beneficial in certain cases to show certain anatomy more clearly. It improves diagnostic accuracy, especially in cases of certain tumors, blood vessels, inflammation or infection. MRI contrast agents do not contain iodine and rarely cause allergic reactions or other problems.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have been experiencing significant chest pain and other various symptoms for the past year and a half, I am scheduled to get a CT scan of my chest this week but am concerned about the radiation. Do you know if an MRI can provide the same graphics? Your answer would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Does MRI of the shoulder see the scapula (pain is in upper right back around shoulder blade)?
Avatar f tn I've been told that to have an MRI taken of my shoulder 4 weeks post op after having rotator cuff surgery would be a waste of time as the pictures would be too clouded by inflammation from the recent surgery to be able to see anything. Is this true? A Radiographer has told me this wouldn't be true and you could still see the pictures clearly enough.
Avatar n tn 6 weeks ago I was working out (weight lifting shoulder exercice) and I felt a pain in the back of my neck (left side, behind the shoulder). After that i realized my left thumb, index and middle fingers went numb. 6 months later, the thumb and middle fingers are or, but the tip of the index is still tingling. I went to a doctor and he told me to get an MRI. So I did. But I CANT UNDERSTAND THE RESULTS, and my doctor is too busy to look at them now! Can someone please tell me whats wrong with me ?!
1375148 tn?1323166921 By the way, My NL has pretty much dismissed most findings on my MRI. and has referred me to a fibromylegia/ CFS specialist. The NL and the spinal team think my 'disc protrusion' is small but the private neurosurgeon i saw thinks is pretty significant for someone my age [29].
Avatar f tn Multiplanar T1 and T2 weighted images were acquired of the thoracic spine with sagittal T2 weighted images also performed of the cervical and lumbar spine. Report: The alignment is within normal limits. No abnormality is demonstrated in the marrow. Minor loss of signal intensity is seen in the discs from T6/7 to T10/11 with minimal end plate irregularity but without end plate destruction or marrow oedema.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I have been suffering from pins and needles in my left arm and tingling and weakness in my index, thumb and second finger for about 4 week after having severe neck and shoulder pain for 3 days. I would be very grateful if you would decipher the results of my mri scan as I have to wait some time for an appointment with a neurosurgeon. THERE IS A LOSS OF THE NORMAL CERVICAL LORDOSIS CONSEQUENT TO MODERATELY SEVERE DEGENERATIVE CHANGE AT C4-5, C5-6 AND C6-7.
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.
1321145 tn?1280552668 i think that all the activity of the brain is in the frontal lobes it shows up in a MRI of how a brain functions; my MRI did not show this it was negative.
Avatar f tn Hello there, I had an MRI scan done after an ultrasound found a lesion on my liver. This is what the report said...a small lesion, well circumscribed of approx 8mm was found posterior segment of the liver, beneathe the dome of diaphragm in almost subcasular positon. The lesion can not be identified with any confidence on the T1W and T2W images, but is viible on azia GRE T1W images particularly with opposed phase image.
Avatar n tn reveals the presence of a few scattered high signal foci in the deep white matter bilaterally on T2 weighted images and FLAIR without corresponding findings of T1 weighted images. These are primarily periventricular nature although there is some extension into the centrum semiovale. Similar changes are noted in the brainstem. There is no associated mass effect or edema.
382218 tn?1341181487 I'd be interested in others' experiences as well. I already have CT and MRI images that show the problem pretty well, but my doc & I have never discussed it, as we're always looking at other things, for which those images were produced. Still, I've had nasal problems all my life, and I've wondered what might be possible.
1252074 tn?1271541709 I would ask to get a referral to an MS specialist. I wouldn't wait until your second MRI. I'm surprised you weren't seeing one in light of your history of seizures because something is obviously going on in your brain. Lesions next to ventricles are common places of MS attacks. See this medical article:
Avatar n tn We are very confused. Could they have read the MRI images incorrectly? The initial MRI images were also seen by our family physician who stated he also saw something. Thank you for any insight you can give us.

Avatar f tn The doctor at the MRI center would not issue a report on the second scan because they needed more images. ?? Friday was a more detailed scan of the area slightly above my cerebellum, and the pineal gland cyst. I know I'm not crazy, but I feel that they are somehow connected. I have never suffered from headaches before. The pressure pain is always there, and there are times the pain gets so bad I get sick. During the extreme pain it hurts to chew, cough, or talk.
Avatar f tn The CT scan I had of my chest says that on only one image my aorta is 4 cm. My cardiologist says that because the way the CT cuts the images at an angle one could get a reading larger than what it is. We will do a MRI in June. Has anyone else heard of this? Wouldn't an aneurysm show up on the other angles of the CT scan and not just one image?
