Question
Our radiologist's are extemly busy with the amount of films they ready everyday. I would like an independent opinion on the attached films, i.e., arthritis, Bulging disc's, narrow formaling on the spinal cord, and what should I expect in the future as far as possible surgeries, arthritis, etc.
How do I upload multiple files associated with the 3 MRI's I have had, hip exrays, and any other xrays?

I would like to have a detailed look at the reports and images before giving my opinion.

Please mention your detailed history in term of duration, severity, involved side etc. It will be helpful in making diagnosis.

WWW.WWWW.WW Thank you! As I mentioned, with the volume completed by our radiologist, I feel as though they just rush through the films and would appreciate the second opinion.

Hi,

Welcome back XXXXXXX

I have tried to download images from your link. But unfortunately it was not possible.
Please try to upload 10 to 15 images separately in ATTACHMENTS segment on your dashboard and mention 'Attention Dr Ganesh'.

Sorry for inconvenience. I am looking forward for your response.

Hi,

Welcome back XXXXXXX

I have gone through your MRI images on T1 weighted images it is primarily looks like a bulging discs at lower cervical vertebra.

However, I will need few more image of T2, STIR AND axial sequences. Sagittal images must be at similar level that of T1 images that you have already uploaded.

You can find either T1 or T2 at upper left of the images.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but MRI needs multiple sequences for diagnosis.

Looking forward for your response.

Regards.
