I just recieved the following reply from Dr. David Harshfield. Harshfield is the radiologist and specializes in upright MRIs. His reports are also the best I have seen.
"We can make the diagnosis of CTE on recumbent MRI’s, although not as easily as on upright MRI’s, and there are additional secondary findings that are indirect evidence of increased intracranial pressure, such as dural ectasia of the optic nerve sheaths, prominence of the Meckel cave regions of the CSF space adjacent to the cavernous sinuses, prominent perivascular spaces of Virchow Robin, prominent posterior cerebral veins, pacchionian granulations along the transverse and sigmoid sinuses and other subtle findings. I would be happy to talk with your colleague" if you want to give him my cell number,,,thanx,,d"
Let me know what you hear from Dr. Gaillard and if your GP Dr. Tim would like to speak with Dr. Harshfield. If so I will give him Harshfield's cell phone number.
