I've been struggling with several MS symptoms (ie: my legs are in terrible shape, my arms are very weak, numbness, tingling, bladder and bowl problems etc) for about
a year and a half. I have been tested for all kinds of things like RA, lupus, Sjornes but everything is fine.
I just got a tesla 3 brain MRI and I need some help understanding the radiologists report. If you can help me I would appreciate it more than you know. I am truly at wits end.
PS I've also had a lumbar puncture which came out okay too.
Redemonstration of a few T2 signal abnormalities with corresponding
decreased T1 signal involving the deep cerebral white matter.
Additional lesion involving the juxtacortical white matter of the
left frontal gyrus. No associated abnormal diffusion restriction. No
infratentorial lesions. No new lesions.
No evidence of acute infarct. Midline structures are unremarkable.
Normal size and configuration of ventricles and subarachnoid spaces.
Orbits are unremarkable. Paranasal sinuses are clear. Right-sided
mastoid effusion, unchanged. Major intracranial flow voids are
Multiple deep and a single juxtacortical supratentorial white matter
lesions. No new lesions or periventricular lesions or posterior fossa
lesions. The distribution and imaging appearance are atypical for
multiple sclerosis. Overall the disease burden is mild.
