Common Questions and Answers about What is mri scan of brain


Avatar n tn My son who is 3 years had developmental delays and even now speaks very little. He takes time to answer to normal questions for his age. Long hours of sleep. Poor appetite, weak muscle tone are the symptoms. His mother is a victim of Depression and suspected to be a victim of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. The child's MRI scan report summary of Brain says, "No significant abnormalities found." But in point No.
Avatar m tn The Mri Scan of brain of 75 year old male patient reads as follows. Periventricular and subcortical white matter high signal areas are seen Generalised prominence of cisterns and sulci noted The cerebellar hemispheres show prominent sulci MR angiography of circle of willis shows patent major branches Mucosal thickening is seen at both maxillary and ethmoid sinuses fluid signal is seen at right mastoid pls clarify me about this.
Avatar f tn has confirmed that Kandise has a probable ischaemic perinatal insult involving right caudate nucleus, right thalamus, mid brain with small right cerebral peduncle, right side of the pons and right medulla. There is also Wallerian degeneration in the brain stem. The left cerebellar hemisphere is also reduced in volume.
Avatar f tn They may relate to old insult and other causes of demyelination would also be possible. Note is also made of quite prominent Meckel's caves bilaterally, these follow CSF intensity on all sequences and the appearance likely relates dual ectasia. This also likely accounts for a fairly generous size pituitary fossa/suprasellar cistern. Small amount of CSF in the optic nerve sheaths bilaterally but no overt ectasia of these.
Avatar f tn (can you interpret) - I will just give what my doctor highlighted. The other things state normal no swelling/etc. 1) There are a couple of punctate nonspecific foci of hyperintense T2/Flair signal the the left frontal subcortical white matter. 2) Incidentally noted is a linear focus of enhancement within the left parietal lobe, which likely represents a small developmental venous anomaly. 3) There is a small retention cyst along the floor of the left maxillary sinus. I am not worried.
Avatar m tn His GP ordered a brain MRI but it came back normal. Would a regular radiologist diagnose Chiari if he is not looking for it? I described his symptoms to a friend and she mention Chiari as her friends daughter received that diagnosis. He is having bradycardia, tired all the time, headaches that make him throw up, render him unconscious, he then comes to but and you know he can hear you but he can't talk or move for at least 5 minutes.
Avatar f tn offlately the headache persists almost all the time and therefore i went in for MRI Brain with contract. Rest everything is normal except for discrete hyper intense chronic foci in bilateral periventricular, deep and subcortical white matter more marked in the left fronto parietal lobe. I have also been visiting psychologists for treatment for stress for the last two years but have not been under any medication so far except for pain killers.
Avatar n tn The cortex is the outer substance ( also called gray matter ). What your MRI finding says is that there is probably small focal lesion happened over a period of time. These can be non specific (insignificant), since you do not have any symptoms relevant to the lesions. Some white matter hyperintensities are normal at this age. Please watch out for any other symptoms.
Avatar n tn what is a puntuate of focus of T2 prolongation is noted in the right parietal white matter on a brain MRI mean?
Avatar m tn Hi I had a MR scan of my brain a couple of weeks ago as I had vertigo’s episodes some times . According to my doctor the MR results shows some unspecified gliosis. He said this is not a major problem, as it can be associated to some sleeping disorders and nothing with the vertigo. Do you agree with this opinion or I should check with a neurologist?
Avatar n tn This is not an uncommon process in the brain and increases with age. This is not a disease in and of itself but rather is a reflection of unhealthy blood vessels, damaged by years of plaque build-up. This is most often due to a combination of several factors including the following: high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, and high cholesterol. If these factors are well controlled, the damage to the brain can be stabilized and further damage prevented.
Avatar m tn had a mri last week of pelvic area and lower back, got a copy of the mri on a disc and took a look of it and was wondering what black spots and bright white spots mean in either are scanned?
Avatar f tn Can you please explain my MRI of the brain done with and without contrast please: On T2 weighted and FLAIR sequences, there are multiple subcentimeter round ovoid foci of high signal in the right frontal lobe periventricular white matter, in addition to several subcentimeter lesions in the periventricular and subcortical white matter in the left frontal lobe and the subcortical white matter in the posterior right frontal lobe.
13766472 tn?1431396964 a note is made of a 3 mm ring calcification in the right posterior fossa slightly inferior and lateral to the 4th ventricle (image 6 ) this finding may be extra axle or intra axle at the anterior periphery of the cerebellum. It is of a questionable acute significance. What does this mean.. I have been having horrible headaches on the side of my head and bottom of the back of my skull. This is why the scan was done.
Avatar f tn been suffering from muscle wasting, brisk reflexes and i also have neurofibromatosis 1 ..MRI Brain with contrast, MRI Cervical spine and MRI IAMS Can anyone tell me what the MRI IAMS is? sorry if its a dumb question!
Avatar f tn This headache could be due to raised intracranial pressure and lowering of temporal lobes on MRI due to brain herniation, which is a consequence of very high intracranial pressure. Herniation could result from many factors causing mass effect and increase intracranial pressure including traumatic brain injury, stroke and brain tumor. You need to consult a neurologist immediately with this concern, as this can be fatal. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn Diagnosis, however, according to the McDonald criteria, requires objective evidence of lesions disseminated in time and space which may be seen with MRI. Typical MRI results for MS is involvement of corpus callosum, U fibers, temporal lobes, brainstem, cerebellum and spinal cord. It is important to differentiate the nature of the white matter lesions- whether this is due to normal aging or from vascular issues. It is good that the initial evaluation has ruled this out.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the information it doed help me. The symptomsmy daughter experiencing which are facial paralysis and blured vision right side of face.Bells Palsy was first diagnosis before MRI. Have the remainder of MRI report now. "There is also expansion of the occipital horns of bothlateral ventricles which contail focal well defined ovoid areasof uniformlyincreased signal intensity on T2 and flair sequencesand intermediate to low signal intensity on T1. this measures 2.

Avatar n tn i had mri scan of my brian 3 weeks ago and now want me to have another with the dye injected first . does this mean they have found somehing wrong ?
Avatar n tn I know your question is based on needing to know where to get a private MRI scan, which i am unsure of!! Maybe try finding some in your local directory? Best of luck!!!!
Avatar n tn Hi My partner is a man of 45 years of age this last year he had a arotic valve replacement in his heart and this month he is due to have repeat operation as the previous valve has been leeking, before this He had always worked doing computers designing for the post office many travel agencies ect This heart problm is worring but our main concern at the moment is his mental state In January my partner collapsed while going up stairs worried it was his heart I phoned an ambulance the hospita
Avatar f tn im 30 years old i got a mri a few years ago and it said i had two high signal lesions on my brain i just wondered if you could shed any light on this for me ??? i dont understand what it means ? i have been having problems with my health for over 10 years fatique memory problems dizzy vision problems and strange pains all over . i have been in and out of doctor surgeries with no clear cut answers .
Avatar m tn I know u want to know what is going on, but sometimes what is written in the report is an opinion of the radiologist, not a NS...so, u should wait, plus u r only looking at the last comment line and that does not always indicate everything going on....as I like to say u need to look at the whole picture....not just a part of it. At his age I wonder if there is a PT and patterning u can do to help him? Have they suggested ne of that?
Avatar f tn Hi, What symptoms does your wife have? How old is she? MRI shows ischemic areas in the brain. These ischemic areas could be as are a result of multiple strokes. Empty sella turcica can occur due to enlargement of pituitary gland as a result of pregnancy or endocrine disorder. It is often associated with thyroid disorders, obesity, raised intracranial tension. A correlation with clinical symptoms will help in making an exact diagnosis.
