From the Desk of Dr. Mark Studin

Preamble: many of these issues are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then the larger issues often take care of themselves and you can focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice and more family time.

“Inferior Extrusion with a Varices”

, pl.
 (var'iks, var'i-sēz),
1. A dilated vein.
2. An enlarged and tortuous vein, artery, or lymphatic vessel.
[L. varix (varic-), a dilated vein]

If you are not familiar with a varices, you need to take the MRI course. If you have and still aren’t familiar, then you must do the Mini-Fellowship in MRI spine with Dr. Peyster. This is a very common finding and most radiologists miss it. 

These images are from a 33-year-old “iron man” whose life as an athlete is virtually over. Although I realize that training is important, most young athletes who train at this level I have seen in my career show similar clinical presentations.   

Thank you, Dr. Michael Scarton from PA for the images…
