I would like to know how you can interpret my wife MRI and give a professional result on her Lumbar Spine MRI? How I send to you the MRI imaging? Please let me know I need a professional advice on this to see why my wife is getting these back pain.
Dr. Corenman, Firstly, thank you for providing videos on understanding MRI.. huge help. I do however, have a question, i am looking at T1 weighted MRI of the lumbar spine and because the contrast of soft tissue and denser tissues is less obvious(different degrees of greys),im having difficulty in feeling confident in what im seeing.. Do you have another video laying around in T1 weighted(haha) or any suggestions or other resources that could help
T1 MRI images are useful where fat images need to be differentiated from water (CSF and inflammation). The three conditions where T1 images are most valuable are in foraminal herniations, tumor conditions and prior surgeries (the use of gadolinium). I was thinking about a Youtube T1 image tutorial but that would be advanced for most patients who seek information.
I am putting together a commercial tutorial on the website “Medbridge” regarding interpretation of all imaging which should be available in about three weeks. It will include T1 image interpretation.
