I need to have my mother’s MRI read by a radiologist. Her doctor ordered her to have an MRI done and she had one done yesterday. My mother has had neck pain for at least a year now and her doctor believes the problem is arthritis, but not sure. My mother went to a physical therapist and had several shots in her neck for pain, but that did not solve the problem. I have sent the files of the MRI.
Welcome to icliniq.com.I have read through your query in detail and have gone through the MRI (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Please find my observations below.
In conclusion, pain in the neck is possible with this kind of an MRI finding and might be considered a finding that is to be managed medically. Surgery is not required in this case as the findings are mild.Physiotherapy and nerve pain relief medicines are the first treatment of choice.
Thank you doctor,
Can you tell me if you see any signs of cancer in the neck area of the MRI?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
There is limited assessment of the neck region in this MRI scan.
In conclusion, if she is having any symptoms like change in voice, difficulty in respiration or when swallowing, then additional investigations might be required.
