Amazing my filing system works.
I have had 3 MRI (2 x 2007 and 1 x 2008) In the first two they noted the disc degeneration and the disc bulges and in the 2008 they found the lesions, below plus the previously mentioned cord lesion.
"Two foci of white matter hyperintenity have developed as shown on flair and T2 imaging. There is a 2-3mm focal elipical area anteriorly in the left centrum semiovale and a more confluent area of white matter hyperintensity adjacent to the lateral aspect of the atrium of the left lateralventricle. This measures 11mm in maximum diameter. No enhancement occurs on administration of Gadolinium."
When the Neuro reviewed the films with me when I asked what areas would be affected by these lesions and the cord lesion he pointed out four other lesions which I could also clearly see when he indicated where they were. Sadly he did not write down the positions of the extra four found. And more to my disappointment he did not talk about the areas that could be effected by the positions of any of the lesions, because of my technical mind I was deeply disappointed by this.
Sorry this all coming out in patches of info, doesn't help you to form a picture but then again it is a disjointed story for most of us to achieve a dx over the years. Some times it may be better to get the pieces by association and then form an overall masterpiece.
Thanks again, Nigel
