What does this MRI report indicate?
Mild hematopoetic marrow signal changes of the Osseous structures
Minimal nonspecific periventricular T2 hyperintensity with a small T2 hyperintense focus within the genu of the right internal capsule
What does all this mean?
MRI findings explained below.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
Marrow hematopoietic changes in MRI could be related to changes of the red marrow/yellow marrow percentage related to age.
But, it could be also linked to infection and blood diseases such myeloma, lymphoma etc.
Needle biopsy of the bone marrow is needed to achieve the correct diagnosis.
T2 hyperintensities of brain white matter may be linked to multiple sclerosis, or vasculitis ( inflammation of small vessels of brain mainly related to autoimmune diseases ).
Spinal cord MRI and spinal tap with cerebrospinal fluid examination are needed to confirm or exclude MS.
ANA positive doesn't mean necessarily that you are suffering from Lupus, other tests ( specific antibodies tests ) are needed.
These issues should be discussed with your primary care Doctor.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Would a punch nerve cause any of this?
In my opinion,MRI didn't exclude entirely MS.
MRI found some hyperintensities that could not exclude entirely MS.
However, these imaging findings may be caused also by infection (viral one for example).
I think spinal MRI is more accurate than spinal thermography, however, there are no side effects with this procedure, so it could be done and could give additional information about your condition.
Needle biopsy should be done if clinically and by imaging is suspected a condition that involves bone marrow too.
It is necessary that these issues to be discussed first with your treating Doctor, he is the one that could judge more accurately about your condition and needed tests.
Hope this helps.
