QUESTION: Hello. I have no doubt that it must be extremely complicated and take extensive training to do your job, that is for sure.
Attached are a couple more. The first is from the folder labeled AX SWI (17.5mm/1.8 mm) - it's the 40th out of 91. The second is from another folder labeled AX SWI (3.5mm/1.8mm)- ith's the 41st out of 100. Thank you very much Dr.
I think we are in right right region on these. Unfortunately these don't help with figuring things out. I wouldn't worry about it too much but would certainly get a repeat MRI in the future to make sure it is stable.
---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------
QUESTION: When do you recommend I have a follow-up scan? Thank you so much. Out I every doc that's laid their eyes on my brain lately, no one recommended that- so I truly appreciate it. Is there a good chance it's nothing to worry about? Thank you.
Well, that is a good question.
Your doctors may be right but I don't see the whole scan and have to rely only on a limited info. In all likelihood this is absolutely nothing to worry about. However, if this is the only area of abnormality in the brain, then it's location is a bit peculiar. Now we know that it was stable for two years and that is very helpful. I would suggest getting another MRI in two years with contrast. If you ever have a chance or can ask someone to upload the whole scan into a dropbox or some other site, let me know and I'll review it.
