I was asking myself if there is a place where someone can try to assess your icp through mri using the mri you already have – being in europe i can’t come in us for an mri :).
Does somebody know?
Ps i was asking myself the dosage of vitamin A for having some reaction on csf. Thank you… Very kind.
Pps very interesting the diamox pearls…
Sure, if you have a copy of your MRI, you could check the mid-sagital cut (that’s the view taken from centre of nose to back of head, as if you were looking from the side) against this one:-
A neuro-opthalmologist may also spot signs of raised intracranial pressure, by carrying out an eye exam.
Sometimes the signs can be seen on a ‘fundus’ photo, which many opticians are taking these days. Here in the UK, you can have a fundus photo taken of both eyes for about £10. If you ask before they do it, they can probably give you a copy, or access to a copy electronically. Vision Express, here in the UK, will give you a password, so that you can access your own photo’s, via the internet. Then, it’s easier for you to enlarge and examine at home, or print it off to show your specialist, or send to an expert for a professional opinion.
