    9mm rounded non specific focus of marrow abnormality rt. iliac wing

    Recently I injured my back by lifting a heave object. I was in a lot of pain for more than a month and finally had an mri. The diagnosis was lumbar radiculopathy. After 2 months I am finally feeling better. Here is a summary... 1. Multi level lumbar spondylosis. There is resultant mild narrowing of the spinal canal at L4 and L5 and severe right and moderate left sided neural forminal narrowing at L5 and S1. Non spedific 9mm focus of marrow signal abnormality within the rt. iliac wing which is incompletely assessed on the current study. Consider bone scan for further evaluation. The latter is my main concern. I would like to know some of the possibilities before the bone scan. My doctor is saying nothing and yet when I asked him if I really neede the bone scan he did not seem to insist. He said sometimes on open mri's this happens. But why only one 9mm spot? I am totally confused because when I try to find information all i fine is the worst.(ms,tumor,cancer,etc) Can you please help me understand. Since I am feeling much better now I don't think the two are related. Thank you. Monte Perez I am 61 years old

    You may want to also post your question on the Back Pain board as much of the discussion here centers around neck pain/issues. I don't know what the finding could mean - are you dealing with a Neurosurgeon or Orthopedic Spine Surgeon or just your primary care physician?
