The reporting of MRI involves viewing images aquired in various planes (vertical, horizontal etc), with various settings (T1, T2 etc). The appearance of same structure may vary greatly in different sequences (like white vs black). So it may be difficult to comment on the MRI from the...
Read your query. That is a very significant question and i appreciate your problem. I will try my best to answer your query
First, it is not like MRI is going to increase the size of your lump. There is no valid explanation behind that and this is...
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, you have not given complete detail of the swelling like since how long it is being there does it have any clinical complain your age and gender are also not given, these are the important detain should have been given here without these...
T1, T2 and flair are sequences taken in MRI, it is technical language.
Your MRI scan is absolutely normal. It will quite difficult to understand all the minor details in brain MRI, as one has to study all the anatomy.
Report has explained the all structures in brain like...
1. thin Bakers cyst extending superiorly deep to the semimembranosus uscle.
2. There is an abnormal marrow signal involving the proximal fibula. This is seen involving the epiphysis and proximal metaphysis [What is this?]
3. periosteal thickening with increased signal along the lateral proximal fibular metaphysis which is incompletely visulatized.
4. Periosteal thickening measures up to 4.5 mm in thickness and extends posteriorly as well.
5. x-rays from 3/28/13 reviewed show no osseous abnormality of the proximal fibula.
What does this mean?
1.baker cyst is an incidental finding and symptom due to cyst depends on size of cyst.
2.abnormal marrow signal intensity is incomplete language it depends on how it look on various sequence of MRI.
3.periosteal thickening may be due to infection.
4.xrays as compared to MRI have much...
Thanks for your question.
Numbness in one side of face is neurological problem.

MRI Lumbosactal Spine
Straightening of lumbar lordosis suggesting of pravavertebral muscles spasm.
L-4-L-5 and L5_S1 discs show low T2WI signal suggesting of degenerative disc lesion.
Marginal and Posterior osteophytes are noted.
L-4-L5 and L-5-S1 discs show diffuse posterior bulge with indentation of thecal sac with bilateral narrowed exit foramina.
Preserved vertebral bodies’ height, shape and their bone marrow signal intensities.
Maintained height and signal intensity of the other examined discs, with no disc bulges or herniations.
The visualized terminal part of spinal cord and conus medullaris are of normal configuration and signal characteristics.
The bony spinal canal displays normal width.
No para spinal soft tissue abnormality detected.
In short your MRI Revealed degeneration and mild prolaps of disc( it is present between two vertebrae ) in between 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae and another between 5th lumbar n 1st sacral vertebrae.
Bony outgrowth(osteophyte ) which is found posteriorly n small .
Loss of distal curvature of...
Thanks for writing in.
I would have appreciated seeing both MRI scans before giving an opinion. I suggest you take the earlier MRI to the second radiologist and request an opinion and discussion of the same with your doctor.
Hope this helps
