Just got my MRI back and I’m wondering if Dr. Driscoll can spot anything unusual. I was hoping to maybe get imagery of my vagus nerve in here but I’m not sure I can see it. This is the best I was able to do with a screenshot.
Definitely low-lying cerebellar tonsils. Also possible brainstem compression, but I’d want to look at a few additional slices to make sure.
It’s not quite the middle slice, do you have the next slice to it, which might show the pituitary and brainstem a bit better.
I can see a collection of fluid above your brain and also what looks like a pannus behind your odontoid peg but it’s difficult to tell exactly from this slice
