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?

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.

Hi, I have noticed in the last 6 months or so that after orgasm my heartbeat is very irregular, with gaps and then large thumps, lasts for about one minute. I haven't noticed any other irregular heatbeats. I sometimes get palpitations if I am very nervous, say before I speak up in a large room of people. I guess this isn't related but I have in the last 2 years seen consultants due to persistent pins and needles especially at night when I can only sleep on my back with my arms by my side, I have also suffered joint pains, MS, Lupus have all been ruled out (had an MRI scan and blood tests), but could the P&N's be related to a heart problem?

Hi, my name is Michelle. I am a 19 year old and I took an MRI for my back because I was having lower back nerve pain from a college soccer injury. But when I got the results back, they said that they found nothing wrong with my lower back but instead, the doctors found a dark shadow in my right kidney. So I took an Ultra sound for it and the dark shawdow was about as big as a quater maybe a little bigger right in the center of the kidney. What does this dark shadow mean?
