Confused as usual

My MRI results said: One nonspecific gliotic focus seen in the medial aspect of the right basal ganglia. Diffusion weighted imaging demonstrates no acute infarct. Any idea what this means?

Re: Confused as usual

Unfortunatey it isnt saying anything specific....but thats also the good news! "Nonspecific gliotic focus" isnt specific to a MS lesion- you havent been diagnosed yet, have you? Doesnt sound like the MRI is leaning towards MS at this time...
I hope you feel better soon....when do you see your doctor for follow up on the test?? Let us know what he says...
Take care..
