I finally had to just go to the Doc office and ask for a print out of her results of her MRI/MRA. I could not get the PA to return my calls in regards to the results. I’m a bit upset because they do have negative findings on it that seem pretty important to know. Since I love the doctor and this isn’t her field I will over look the annoying PA and just find whoever we need to assist if the results need follow up. If anyone here might understand this findings and which type of Doctor we should see for an opinion I’d love to hear your thoughts. I assume a neurologist is who, but don’t know that for certain. These were done in a traditional laying down MRI and she is 13 (if that is important) (and not to worry. I am not one to panic and get worked up so please feel free to be totally honest etc. I know people on the Internet can’t diagnosis but can be very helpful in just understanding things better, so speak freely)
Finding: There is no evidence for restricted diffusion. Tiny foci of abnormal T2/FLAIR signal involve the subcortical white matter predominantly involving frontal lobes bilaterally. There is relative sparing of the posterior fossa and brainstem. There is no evidence for chari 1 or chari 2. Gradient echo signal is unremarkable. Postcontrasted sequences are unremarkabl. There is no evidence of tonsiliar herniation.
Following are normal: visualized mastoid air cells, sinuses. Orbits. Arterial flow voids. Bone marrow signal.
1. No evidence for acute inter cranial pathology.
2. Foci of abnormal T2/FLAIR signal within the pervientricular white matter of frontal lobes predominantly. These are nonspecific in nature. Differential considerations would include sequelae of migraine headaches, remote trauma, vasculitis, or early micro vascular disease changes. Multiple sclerosis shou,d also be considered in the appropriate clinical setting.
3. No evidence for abnormal enhancement.
If anyone grasps these findings it would be greatly appreciated. I know we will need to see a doctor for if this is of concern etc but I’ve learned understanding things before seeing the doctor can be very helpful in having a productive understandable appointment. Worse is leaving more confused than before going.
Thanks for taking the time to read and respond and thanks again for the previous posts. 😀
