Exclamation My MRIs...

Ok, so I noticed finally (insert big DUH here, lol) that the MRI images have either an L (left) or R (right) to the far sides of the image to let you know the location of the picture.

Anywho .... the images I am attaching are of the left side and you can easily see at the far forefront (frontal lobe) that there is one very bright spot. Assuming that this is my biggest lesion that is documented as being in my left frontal lobe.

There are also some other visible spots as well about midway down and then further toward the bottom.

Hoping that tomorrow the MS specialist will actually view these and go over them WITH me!

Re: My MRIs ....

My son's e-book for his biology classes has photos and I know that some teaching hospitals also have photos which you can look at in comparison, but it really does little good. I saw two nearly identical photos- one with MS and the other with an MS mimicry and to me the were the same. The narrative, however, added additional details which when taken into consideration brought the reader to the point where they could pick up the tiny detail differences and also have the patient data to understand the difference.

Your images are a reason why the MRI is not a specific MS test nor should any patient ever be diagnosed with MS based on an MRI alone. I hope your appointment today goes or has gone well!!

Re: My MRIs ....

There was much more than that was visible on the few slides I posted. See my new post.
