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 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 f tn Hi there, If you have had repeat MRI over an extended period of time on a T3 machine using MS Protocol and a lumbar puncture (MRI of your thoracic, cervical and brain the chances of it being MS would be diminished. MRI is pretty good at imaging the brain, but not so good at imaging the spinal cord. Usually a good neurologist can tell from examination and what symptoms you are having if your lesions are more likely to be spinal or brain.
Avatar m tn I also take zimovane to help me sleep which i find very hard to do,My problem is why am i not getting any better as i feel worse than ever.i have had an mri scan done on my thoracic spine and these are the results MRI THORACIC SPINE STANDARD PROTOCAL VERTABRAL BODY ALIGNMENT IS SATISFACTORY.BONE MARROW SIGNAL NORMAL.SPINAL CORD SIGNAL AND POSITION IS NORMAL.THERE IS LOSS OF NORMAL DISK SIGNAL FROM THE UPPER THORACIC DISKS CONSISTENT WITH EARLY DISK DEGENERATION.
Avatar f tn I can understand your confusion. Both MRI and CT scan can be used to screen for an aneurysm/dilatation. MRI is a safer option as it does not expose a patient to radiation, but the quality of image is poor as compared to CT scan (which exposes a patient to radiation). In case of doubt, CT scan imaging is done. So, yes, it is possible that a MRI is unable to catch a small aneurysm or gives a false image of an aneurysm/dilatation.
Avatar f tn I have recently had an MRI scan and the report has indicated that I have a L5/S1 circumferential disc bulge whih displaces the exiting L5 nerve roots bilaterally.. On the left this effaces the perineural fate and contacts the L5 nerve root. A neurosurgeon has apparently reviewed my scan and said there is no evidence of this disc bulge without even seeing me and suggested tertherd cord syndrome should be investigated..
Avatar f tn I had a regulary scheduled appointment yesterday with my Internal Medicine Doctor. He asked me if I had ever had a spinal MRI. I told him no and he said I really needed to have one. (he knows my neurological history and has seen my brain MRIs. I had a total spine MRI at 8:00 this morning. The Tech told me that they don't use the dye for this scan unless she sees something. After the scan.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had a MRI scan a couple of days ago but no one has really explained to me what has happened, I will be reviewed by the spinal team as an outpatient. I have posted the results below and I would really appreciate if someone could explain in non medical terms what is happening. Here's some background info. I have had a recurring bad back for the past 10 years, but at the side of my back. Usually every six months for a couple of weeks at a time then back to normal.
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 hi had mri 29th dec noticed radiologist point and show other radiologist then came in asked who ordered scan my doc or a neuroilogist seemed strange havent got results yet but only been wk
Avatar m tn Can someone please explain the following MRI report from the Neurologist to my GP This patients MRI brain scan shows some diffuse high T2 and flare signals within the Pons leaving a central rim of normality around the outside, I have revieved the MRI myself and is almost certainly vascular disease thanks if anyone can explain me this in simple laymans terms
Avatar m tn My blood work, cT scan, and carotid artery ultrasound are all normal. I had an MRI the other day- not contrast. The results appear to be normal except for " Incidental note is amde of an extra-axial appox. 3 mm T1 hyperintense focus in the posterior left occipital region consistant with lipoma". What does that mean and where do I go from here.
Avatar n tn I a cat scan done because of dizziness and then a MRI was done because of something abnormal on the cat scan. The impression of the MRI said there are multiple areas of abnormal signal intensity in the cerebral white matter. A demyelination process would be a strong consideraton. Nonspecific nonacute microvascular changes with a vasculitis would also be in the differential diagnosis. Can you please explain what this means? My dr.
Avatar f tn Hi, last year I had an MRI scan. I was having it as the Dr was looking to see if I had an AVM on the brain, I get a lot of headaches and have an AVM on my right forearm. When I went to see the Dr he told me my results, he said there is a malformation there but it isnt an AVM. He then pointed to the temporal lobes and said they are low. I should of asked him what that meant, but I never ask questions when Im there, I just say to myself I should of asked this and I should of asked that.
Avatar m tn I just had an MRI on my eye due to pain.It ended up being a minor sinus issue. There was also mention of an "Artifact" on a single slice of the MRI. They have suggested a full brain scan as a precautionary measure. My Doctor say this is common and there is absolutely nothing wrong with me (no tumour or cancer) and I have no need to worry. Should I be? Could it be a tumor even thought it was only on 1 slice?
Avatar f tn can anyone help explain what my MRI/MRA scan results mean:While no definitive aneurysmal dilatation of the intracranial vasculature is evident, there is subtle suggestion of potential fenestration of the M1 segments bilaterally, left slightly more conspicuous than the right. There is no evident hemodynamically significant stenosis or high flow vascular malformation. The dural venous sinuses demonstrate normal flow-voids.
