MRI Scan Results

Posted on: August 28, 2011

 

MRI scans need to be studied and examined by a radiologist (a doctor who has special training in reading and interpreting MRI and other type of scans), so you will not know the results of your scan instantly.
The radiologist will report their findings to the doctor who arranged the scan, who will discuss the results with you. Unless they are required urgently, it usually takes a couple of weeks for the results of an MRIscan to come through.

There are some testimonials related results (Experience of the people)

I just had my results back of my MRI scan. My neuroligist hasnt been clear to me about the results just that you must have a very sore neck. Understatement I have extreme numbness in my neck and other areas muscle weakness in swallowing and pain and tender neck and weak arms and limbs wrists among other things. I had a ruptured anyrsym on the right side of head neck 10 mths ago. Could someone please give me some idea on these results as waiting to get a second opionion takes ages. HERE ARE THE FINDINGS. There is prominence of the central canal within the cervical spine extending from c6 mid body level to the c7 inferior endplate level. there is an incidental t2 vertebral body haemangioma. c4/5 There is a tiny anteroinferior annulus fissure and minor annulus bulging but no protrusion or nerve impingement. c5/6 There is tiny anterosuperior annulus fissure. no protrusion or nerve impingement. T1/2 there is minor annulus bulging to left of midline but no protrusion.
If anyone could give me some info on this I would really appreicate it Thanks.  (From Australia)

Tess, I am very sorry that I didn’t see your post earlier. I am sorry to hear about your ruptured aneurysm. What the MRI showed does not seem to explain your symptoms. Let me take each of the findings and translate them one-by-one.
Prominence of the central canal from C6 to C7. The central canal is normally about 1 mm think and can barely be seen on MRI. The fact that it can be seen means and is “prominent” suggests that it is at last 2 mm in diameter. Much data indicates that this is not necessary a precursor to syringomyelia where the central canal increases in size so that it occupies much of the space of the spinal cord and may be compressing the surrounding spinal cord. Sometimes called hydromyelia, this condition is often an incidental finding that is not associated with any symptoms and is not necessarily associated with progressive loss of function. In my opinion, this does not explain your symptoms of numbness, limb weakness, and swallowing difficulties. By the way, swallowing is controlled by cranial nerves and the brainstem rather than the spinal cord. It is possible that whatever caused the central canal enlargement may be responsible for the numbness and weakness. For example, you did have a ruptured aneurysm and blood in your cerebrospinal fluid. This may have resulted in adhesions between your arachnoid and your spinal cord. On the other hand, at least according to the radiologist reading your MRI scan, there does not appear to be anything operable.
T2 vertebral body haemangioma. This is a benign vascular tumor. Normally, it is harmless. However, it may be associated with an arteriovenous malformation. The only way to tell for sure is to do an arteriogram. Given that you had an ruptured aneurysm, you already know all about such tests.
C4/5, C5/6, and T1/2 disc. None of these sound serious nor explanatory of your symptoms.

Could any of the symptoms that you have be residua from your ruptured aneurysm?
