Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan of the back


Avatar n tn my bf has been having pain in the back of haid, it's always there, in the last 9 days he's been feeling mild pain in his left arm and when he goes to sleep he feels that there is something wrong with his heart, he went to the doctor who told him to do a blood test and told him that he has a virus that is affecting his haid and muscels, but nothing has changed, he went again today and the doctor told him that after a while if nothing changes he's going to do either a CT scan or an MRI

Avatar m tn During my 10 day hospital stay the did another CT scan, MRI of the entire spinal column, every possible blood test and a repeat spinal tap. MRI showed that the swelling of the meninges was the same as the first MRI and even across the brain. All other tests came back normal or negative. By this point the Dr's have no idea what it could be or how to treat it. The last test that was done was a biopsy of the meninges.

Avatar m tn Any herniation, degenerative changes or traumatic damage to the soft tissues may be best picked up on an MRI scan of the spine. Consult a neurologist as soon as possible for evaluation to enable time appropriate intervention and prevent deterioration. Management would be according to diagnosis, painkillers, hot fomentation, epidural injection of steroids and physical therapy if disc pathology is diagnosed. Wishing you all the best.
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.

Avatar n tn Shortly after I began suffering headaches and pain traveling up from the bottom of my neck. I went to my doctor and was told the headaches were from back spasms. I also would occasionally get a shooting pain down my right leg from my lower right side of my back when standing up or walking, but this happened so infrequent back then that I did not seek treatment. In 2005 I began having much worse pain and the shooting pains down my leg became more frequent.

Avatar n tn The result of the scan came back normal except for a few spots of plaques. I am 50, is this normal? I am concerned that it is indicative of early degeneration associated with dementia.
Avatar f tn I figured it was because the test was for my ears and nerve endings. The second MRI was the first week of January, and the MRI center called me the next day to inform me that I needed to come back because the doctor reading the images would not issue a report without further images. I went back Friday. I asked the gentlemen who was assisting me where they were focusing this time.
