Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan of uterus


Avatar n tn a period comes when your body sheds the lining of the uterus when it recognizes that it will not be implanting an egg. no uterus would be a big issue with where is the blood coming from have you been to a gynecologist?
16702 tn?1234094245 If one had to pay for a scan, which one would you recommend...MRI, PET, CT, radioactive and possibly others I can't think of ???
Avatar n tn A bulky uterus , backache , heavy bleeding, and pain are all possible symptoms of fibroids, I had a very bulky uterus that contained 16 fibroids and one of which was larger than the size of an average uterus on its own! , you can see why this would cause pain as it would be pressing on other structures in the pelvis. I hope you get the answers after your scan , please let us know how you get on and good luck.
1510036 tn?1290477977 The septum provides a scanty vascular supply for the implanting embryo because of disruption by the septum of orderly arranged vessels in the intermediate myometrial layer of the uterus.[16] A small study looked at the site of implantation of pregnancies in subjects with uterine septum and found that the 8 of 12 pregnancies that miscarried were found on the uterine septum. The other 4 pregnancies that did not miscarry were on the lateral wall of the uterus.
Avatar n tn Good day to all of you, I would like to say that I am going to have my second IVF operation next week, and unfortunatelly I had an asthma 4 days ago, and I still have it even after taking the strongest medicine to cure the asthma. Thanks God for every thing. I feel much worried becuase I don't know whether I would get better before the operation or not. I sure need you to pray for me. I am currently having the Gonal - F injections, and hope that every thing go right for the operation.
Avatar n tn Sometimes the 2 are confused. A bicornuate uterus can be heart shaped or almost a complet split, but the bottom part of the uterus is together. When you say "double" uterus, you might be referring to uterus didelphys. That is when there are 2 separate uteri and sometimes to separate cervix. In most of the cases, a septus separates the vagina into 2 parts. I guess this one is pretty easy to diagnose if the septum in the vagina is present.
Avatar n tn The stuff in the middle doesn't go away right. There are very degrees of separation of the two horns of the uterus. This is also called a heartshaped uterus. My understanding is that problems arrise because the baby can not have enough room to grow properly because the baby only has one side of your uterus to grow on. Your uterus isn't allowed to fully expand because only half of it is being used. Sorry for the not so great or technical explanation but that's about as much as I get right now.
Avatar n tn I had my uterus removed 5 years ago but kept my ovaries. Recently, I had an MRI of my back and pelvic areas for back pain. A part of the MRI results say, "The uterus appears to be retroverted. A few small cysts are noted.....smaller cyst with increased T1 signal. The mass measures up to about 1.4 cm." It has been confirmed that the correct films were read and I am wondering if I need to see another dr about any of these results. An ortho referred me for the MRI.
Avatar f tn The pain on my right hip area started (all of the sudden) one particular day and it has never left me... the MRI on hips shows no abnormalities...But Ct scan and also MRI of pelvis show that I have fluid in the pelvis cavity, Myometrial thickening at the fundus with smooth indentation of the endometrial cavity compatible with arcuate uterus.... A 4.1 x 3.4cm complex cystic structure in the right ovary. Follow-ip with pelvic ultrasound recommended.
Avatar f tn To confirm the diagnosis which has still not been done in your case, ultrasound and MRI scan and biopsy of endometrial tissue need to be done. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
9457234 tn?1403888513 Did you learn this by an MRI scan? If not, I would request a second opinion from a specialist before you believe it. Do you also have no ovaries, or is it just the uterus that is absent? If you have ovaries, you will have eggs, and if you have those, you can still have a baby by surrogate (also called gestational carrier).
458508 tn?1206639142 i also have a bicorniate uterus , my first child no problem born on due date did not know i had bicorniate uteruse as had scan at 12 weeks my second child had scan earlier and they realised i had bicorniate uterus and as was carrying her in smaller womb asked for another scan as might of needed as c section when i got to the scan my womb grew bigger with the baby and was fine .
Avatar n tn Go to this web-site. A gal there by the name of Kay has this type of uterus. She had two beautiful babies although her pregnancies were wild ones with bleeding, ect... There is hope for that desired baby. I wish you well! http://www.misdiagnosedmiscarriage.
Avatar n tn I switched doctors, they performed an MRI of my pelvis and was able to get an idea what size each uterus was. They also did another test to check and see if I had a duplicate collecting system. Well, 5 years later, I have a healthy 17 month old son. I was considered high-risk and went in every two weeks for an ultrasound and for them to measure my cervix, they also did two steroid injections. Luckily, my only real complication during my pregnancy was my nasal passages swelling shut.
Avatar n tn i jsut simply prayed and asked god to please bless me with a child in spite of my uterus and i got pregnant with this almost immediatly.. my uterus is responding well anyway thanks for the info.. and I'm glad to know you can make it with one kidney.. i bet you are too!!!
Avatar n tn I am a 47yr old woman with a history of endometriosis. I have had a total of four surgeries over the years to include: 1) exploratory w/ removal of left ovary, 2) c-section, 3) surgery for burst uterus, & 4) hysterectomy in 1999. I am having surgery again to remove the cluster of cyst ranging from 7.5cms to as small as 2.5 cm in size and the remaining right ovary. These were found thru an ultrasound and then again with an MRI.
Avatar f tn i have to have a saline sonogram to cxonfirm the diagnosis of bicornuate uterus. i did not have an mri of my uterus. i did have a cat scan with iv contrast of my entire abdomen and they did not mention anything about my uterus. that was in june/july. march was when i had the retained placenta. (4 weeks postpartum) i was laying on the couch and something ruptured. there was blood EVERYWHERE. i was told that the retained placenta was an entire lobe.
Avatar f tn They can't tell if it is attached to the ovary or the uterus or both. It's kind of squished in between both. Next appt. is out of town, 2 hours away on the 29th of November. When is your surgery?
768754 tn?1373922337 ) My last mammogram required a second set of x-rays as my breast tissue is dense. Since the MRI is more sensitive in detecting early breast cancer (but also known to result in more false positives), I'd think a breast MRI could be useful. I also have had cysts on my uterus and know that an elevated alpha fetoprotein could also be indicative of tumors on the reproductive organs. Would it be crazy to ask my doc if they can scan other areas of my body as well, as long as I'm there?
Avatar f tn Because I told them I didn't have a uterus when it came up 18mm fibroid on the fundus of the uterus twice. So that was left. I have went to a gastroenterologist. Liver function test fine. Gastroenterology were wondering why I was there.But ordered at upper abdominal ultrasound. Then wanted to do a colonoscopy too.. I don't think so. Oh, I also have a hernia after the hysterectomy where they put polypropoline Gore-Tex mesh in.. size of a nickel.... don't know what to do...
Avatar n tn At this time, I am at a loss of what further testing may help. You can consider an MRI for a more detailed imaging scan, or another opinion with another urologist at a major academic medical center. This option be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential. This answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - the information presented is for patient education only.
Avatar n tn Results just back and informed uterus is massively enlarged. What is the normal size of a uterus? If the uterus is removed abdominally, how big is the incision? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Depending on the clinical findings you will need to get CT scan of abdomen, urine examination etc. You may also need to consult a gastroenterologist. Low back ache could be due to spinal anesthesia (if you had one during delivery), pelvic inflammatory disease, vaginal infections, fibroids in uterus and may other causes. Please consult your neurologist and PCP regarding this.Take care!
Avatar f tn But as borders are indistinct on ultrasonography, it needs further confirmation by MRI or CT scan. Also clinical correlation with symptoms and findings of examination is necessary. Consult your gynaecologist for an evaluation. Hope this helps. Take care and good luck.
Avatar n tn I was glad to get that call even though I had fretted out the delay of it all day. The MRI is needed to see more of the mass but also because of it's placement and size they are concerned that there may be more coming from the fallopian tubes or the ovaries. It is still unclear if the mass is a fibroid or something else. The MRI is supposed to help clear that up based on what they find in the tubes and ovaries. The hope of course - would be nothing.
Avatar f tn The right ovary is visible and appears normal. Left ovary not visualized and may be the origin of the cyst. 3. Note made of an enlarged uterus with severe diffuse adenomyosis.
Avatar f tn The typical signs of adenomyosis are prolonged, heavy bleeding during your periods or severe cramping. To confirm the diagnosis which has still not been done in your case, ultrasound and MRI scan and biopsy of endometrial tissue need to be done. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn There is another ill-defined area of hypodensity in the uterus which does not have the typical appearance for fibroid, but which may represent an old involuting fibroid, however this is not certain. The left ovary appears normal. The right ovary is not clearly visualized. There is a well-circumscribed 11 cm, intermediate density, slightly heterogeneous adnexal mass. It appears to have internal components that enhance, which may represent thin septations. There is no clear capsule.
