I just had the Cine MRI done. Just wondering if it looks crowded to anyone? Also, not sure if brains are supossed to be symetrical or not. To me it looks like the left side of my lower brain is a lot larger than the right, but maybe this is of no consequence…Any comments greatly appreciated.
From those images it is hard to see much. They are the cuts going into the skull. You should have a sagittal cut that is much better.
Hmmm, okay. This is the only other side shot I see. The ones before and after are more blurry.
Now I see it lol. Can you say brain fog. I sent you a message.
Here is the link to the tread of Babara’s MRI.
It looks as if your odontoid is retroflexed slightly. Also the disks in your neck are degenerating. I suspect the your odointiod is pressing against the bottom of your brain called basilar invagnation (sp?) Your tonsils are low lying. I suspect high pressure as it looks like too much fluid in your cisterns which would cause chiari symptoms. Also do you have EDS? If so your results would be drastically different if you had an upright MRI.
