Stable appearance of the brain noting multiple elevated foci of signal intensity on T2 and FLAIR weighted sequences predominating within the periventricular white matter concordant with the history of multiple sclerosis without evidence of restricted diffusion or enhancement to suggest the presence of active demyelination.
Thank you in advance.
My Neurologist reads the films himself side by side with me sitting with him as he compares each slice of the MRI with last years to see any changes. In the beginning they didn't have anything to compare with, but he explained what he was looking at and what things were. It is actually very interesting! There have been times when the radiologist report is different from the Neurologists reading. My Doc says it is what he sees that I need to rely on.
At the MS Center I go to you go and have our MRI and then sit in the waiting room and the Nurse calls you to come back to another room to meet with the Neurologist, no waiting. I think it is more than appropriate for you to call your doctors office and ask for him/her to call you because the waiting is very un-nerving.
With that said, you could ask if there is a cancellation so you could get in earlier?
