    MRI artifact

    I recently underwent an MRI with and without contrast. I have been having daily headaches for the last 3 weeks. The report came back showing "abnormality in the sagittal region, probably artifact". They want me to repeat the scan in 3 to 6 months. Can someone help me understand why I need to repeat the scan if it is, in fact, an artifact?
    Thank you!

    Re: MRI artifact

    The reason why you need to repeat the MRI is cause your Neurologist wants to make sure it's just an artifact. An artifact is just a blip on the MRI. A second MRI will show for sure if it is or not.
