    I have (MRI) of the neck and brain Can I send you by e-mail

    Test result (mri) as follows
    1-+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    MRI CERVICAL SPINE WITH CONTRAST ENHANCEMENT.
    Spin Echo T1 weighted and gradient rephased T2 weighted images were obtained in axial and sagittal plane. T1 weighted images were obtained after contrast enhancement in axial, sagittal and coronal planes.

    History: Sensory symptoms.

    Mild straightening is seen involving the cervical spine.
    Mild disc bulge is seen at C5/6 indenting the thecal sac.
    There is no evidence of disc degeneration or disc herniation.
    There is no spinal stenosis.
    The spinal cord shows no abnormal signal.
    The paravertebral soft tissues are normal.
    The vertebral bodies show no evidence of abnormal signal to indicate bone marrow replacement.
    No unusual enhancement is seen after contrast injection.

    CONCLUSION:
    Mild straightening is seen involving the cervical spine.
    Minimal disc bulge is seen at C5/6 indenting the thecal sac.

    2-+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    MRI OF THE BRAIN WITH & WITHOUT CONTRAST ENHANCEMENT:

    Clinical History: Sensory symptoms.

    Comparison: None.

    Technique: T1 and T2 weighted images were obtained before contrast enhancement in axial plane.
    Flair images were obtained in coronal view. T1 weighted images were obtained after contrast enhancement in axial, sagittal and coronal planes.

    Findings:

    There is no evidence of abnormal signal in the brain to suggest intracranial mass, bleed, area of infarction or hydrocephalus.
    The ventricles are normal size.
    Brain stem and cerebellum shows normal signal intensity and morphology.
    There is no midline shift.
    The sellar floor and bilateral cavernous sinuses are normal.
    The vestibulo-cochlear nerve complexes are normal.
    Visualized parts of calvarium and skull base appear normal.
    No unusual enhancement is seen after contrast injection.

    IMPRESSION:

    There is no evidence of abnormal signal in the brain to suggest intracranial mass, bleed, area of infarction or hydrocephalus.

    Your symptoms are very diffuse. “Numbness” in bilateral hands and knees, weakness in right hand and leg, “numbness” in tongue and dysarthria (difficulty speaking) and “tingling” in different area of body.

    There is no neck disorder that can cause all of these symptoms and your MRI of the neck only notes mild degenerative changes of C5-6. The report of your brain MRI was normal.

    These symptoms can be from a neurological disorder. There are many disorders that can cause these symptoms. A good neurologist should be able to ferret out the origin of these symptoms.

    I cannot refer you to a neurologist. You must research the doctor by word of mouth, what he or she has written, years of experience and possibly by posts on the internet.
