Pains in back, MRI shows an incomplete delineation of a cyst. What could be the problem ?

Hi, I went to the doctor for pains in my back and an MRI was ordered. I got that done 2 wks ago and went to the Dr. yesterday for the results. Nothing wrong with my back, but an nimcomplete delineation of a cyst was seen, I believe he said 3.3mm. So another MRI has been scheduled for my pelvic area. I had a partial hysterectomy years ago leaving my ovaries. Do you have any idea what could be the problem?

Hi, great question

Based on what you have reported, it is difficult to come up with concrete information. Sounds like your doctors do not yest know what is going on.

When a back MRI is done, a scout film or localizer is acquired. A pelvic lesion was probably seen on this localizer or even on some of the other cuts. However, the back images are usually not accurate enough information to establish a diagnosis of a pelvic abnormality.

There are so many possibilities. Get the pelvic MRI and THEN from there start figuring out with your doctors what needs to be done.

Best of luck,,,
