Mri scan shoulder

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan shoulder


Avatar m tn Does MRI of the shoulder see the scapula (pain is in upper right back around shoulder blade)?
Avatar n tn Please can someone help me understand my MRI scan results. I suffer from painfull spasms/cramps in my left arm which I have had for over a year now. I did have similar symptoms in my right arm but these appear to have disappeared although I appreciate this may be temporary. The spasms appear to come on for no reason and keep me awake at night when it is difficult to get in a comfortable position. When I shrug my shoulder I can hear and feel crunching all over the left shoulder.
Avatar n tn I had pain in left shoulder blade, after consultation with Nuerologist I went for an MRI Following are the results : There is hard substance between C4 & C5 Disks pressing the nerve root and causing the pain, earlier i had C4 disc prolapse surgery back in 2004.
Avatar n tn I understand these should be avoided while pregnant, but what if they are medically necessary? Has anyone gotten an MRI or Cat Scan while pregnant? What was the outcome, did it have an affect on your baby? Was it worth it? I have been experiencing agonizing pain in my left shoulder, neck, and arm, that sometimes radiates to my chest, making it hard to breathe. I am having a really hard time sleeping, and even functioning, and my quality of life has gone down because of it.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have severe neck pain which radiates into my shoulder, it stops me from sleeping, also have limited movement in my neck - side to side, up and down. I recently had a mri scan which did show "pockets of inactivity" in my neck. I have since had a lumbar puncture to exclude MS, the doctor did say that all my reflexes etc were good and also said the scan is not typical with an ms patient. I did have a disc removed 15 years ago, L4 L5, and know that my posture is not good.

I'm not sure if it would be on your films or not. I would asked next time or I went to a website that told what strength it was. The problem is that the better machines (the 3T) are few and far between. Most hospitals do not have them. I will be soon going to a university hospital that advertises having a 3T, 7T, & 8T.
Avatar f tn I was involved in a traffic accident five months ago and have had constant pain through my neck,shoulder and arm with spasms and limited use of my hand ever since. I finally had an MRI scan but need help interpreting them and would also welcome any advice on treatment i can expect and what my prognosis for full recovery is, the result as follows: There is minimal disc height reduction at C5/6.
Avatar m tn Hello all. I’ve recently been for an MRI scan following a number of years with neck, back and right shoulder pain. The results have recently come through and although it’s been explained once I'm looking for someone to translate them for me into layman's terms. Also looking for advice on what the future holds (if possible) and also likelihood of treatments at this level. RESULTS The cervical alignment is maintained. The vertebral body height and bone marrow signal are well preserved.
Avatar m tn have a mri scan just done to day could you look at this to see if I tour shoulder muscle
Avatar f tn I have been advised that after a recent mri scan (on my right shoulder) which didn't show anything of any significance i now need to have keyhole surgery for further investigation. I have a few questions to kinda put my mind at rest i suppose! If the scan didn't show anything of any significance does that mean that there isn't actually anything wrong with my shoulder? - the surgeon originally thought i had a ruptured bicep tendon.
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 Just wondering how long to expect an arthrogram MRI of the shoulder to take. I'm guessing 20 minutes longer than a regular MRI. Do they do a full mri once yout injected? How much pain should i expect? and for how long should i expect discomfort, I am planning to take 1-2 days off work following the test.
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 m tn Hi there.. For the last year and a half I have had pains in my left shoulder which also seems to be giving me "pins & needles" down to my finger tips sometimes. the pain is coming from the underneath of my shoulder blade and normally hurts more while sitting down.
Avatar f tn I wouold strongly advise you to see your Doctor and possibly ask for either an x-ray or MRI. I am not a candidate for an MRI since I have metal in the back.
Avatar f tn Had a MRI in October. Doctor sent me to physical therapy due to a fall with me landing on my right shoulder. It is still acting up. Now he wants me to have a "arthrogram MRI." I went to get the procedure done today. The radiologist will not give me the arthrogram MRI. He says that I am "severely allergic" to it. I get severe hives, vomit, eyes swell badly. He wants my ortho doctor to give me a prescription for two medications that may counteract it.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your question. Although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. There could be possibility of cervical spondylosis or pinched nerve in cervical spine and pain may be referred and perceived as occurring in the back of head, shoulders, arms or chest, rather than just the neck.
Avatar n tn X-ray is must, but it will tell about the condition of the bone. To know about the muscle pathology, i would suggest you to do the MRI scan and then proceed to an Orthopaedician.
Avatar f tn After putting all this together, he may decide more tests such as MRI, CAT scan, and EMG's
Avatar f tn A CT isn't the best imaging test for this (unless a specialist is adamant about it), because CTs have much worse resolution than MRIs, and involve x-ray radiation, so if you don't need a CT and an MRI would do as well or better, go for the MRI. You could have damaged the shoulder, which is now pinching the nerve, or you could have injured your neck, which could also cause nerve pinching. Getting it sorted out quickly is important.
Avatar n tn What movements, if any, exacerbate your pain? Does your shoulder ever give way? Did your shoulder previously have pain, but is now only stiff? How long have you had your shoulder pain and have you tried anything to help it? Shooting arm pain may be termed radicular pain. Radicular pain is lancinating or electric in nature. Radicular pain radiates deeply in a narrow, characteristic, band-like pattern.
Avatar m tn If the doctor gave you no advice and just said it is a frozen shoulder, I suggest you make an appointment to see a different doctor and ask for a referral for an ultrasound scan or an MRI. My doctor gave me a leaflet on Rehabilitation of the Injured Shoulder and the Stage I exercises are pendular movements. The leaflet says to do these exercises for 5 minutes 5 times a day. Allow the arm to swing with its own weight and don't for the movements.
215289 tn?1253626941 just had a ct scan today, and was wondering how long the results would be? if there was anything majorly wrong would they have said anything there and then?
Avatar n tn I have had MRI work done of the shoulder and it showed no problems. Neck MRI showed some broad based disc protrusions at C4-5 producing minimal indentation of the thecal sac but no compression of the cord or encroachment upon the lateral recesses or the nerve roots. Does this mean the problem does not stem from here? Has anyone had similiar pain and found relief with injections at C4-5, C5-6 or alternative methods? Thanks for any advice.
Avatar f tn Most of it is in my right hand with pain in arm, lower and upper, shoulder and neck. The numbing is constant. Cervical spine mri with contrast shows a 4 mm abnormal enhancing signal focus to the right paracentral aspect of the cord at the upper c5 level with mild surrounding edematous signal change. Brain scan shows some few scattered punctate foci of t2 prolongation involving bihemispheric white matter, predominately at the deep white matter. Does this point to ms? Please help.
Avatar f tn Hi Jeshi123, have you done MRI scan on your right shoulder,? my spine specialist said, disc bulge is not causing my shoulder problem, I need to treat my shoulder first.....
Avatar f tn It goes down my arm and into my hip by the end of the day. I have had every ortho test known to man...MRI, CT Scan, Thorasic Scan, Bone Scan, numerous x-rays - so, since they cannot find anything in these tests, no one has an answer and no one can relieve my pain. I'm ready to go back to my younger days [prior to when I had children] and start smoking weed to relieve the pain...if I don't find an answer fast, I'll be on the corner looking to score! Someone needs to help me!
Avatar f tn I have been having severe pain in my left shoulder, left shoulder blade and left collar bone. This has been going on for 3 months now. Xrays or MRI shows nothing. This pain is worse after getting up from a very little nights sleep. The Dr. now wants to schedule a Bo ... [More] ne Marrow Scan.....what could this possibly be???......This pain is VERY REAL! and why a Bone Marrow Scan if nothing shows in Xray or MRI??
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with cervical ddd 1 year ago, and had problems like yours. my pain specialist doc ordered an mri for shoulder and found out labrum was torn as well as bicep muscle. I am still mending from surgery on the 18 of april. Still dont understand why no mri was ordered for neck......
