What does this look like to someone else's experienced eyes?? This is my most recent mri, an upright one..I have a syrinx, occipital neuralgia, and csf blockage. My neuro won't diagnose me with Chiari based on standard mri's. He hasn't seen this one yet. Is there even the slightest bit of tonsillar herniation in that pic? Also, I feel like I have a very small posterior fossa/basiooccipital hypoplasia. The back of my head feels extremely cramped. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

  Hi...well knowing we r not medical professionals here....and only comparing them to other MRI's like our own and "normal" MRI's posted  and as explained by our Drs.....it looks like u have overcrowding....

I do not know how to check the skull to see if it is hypoplastic....but a good NS should...if it is then u have Chiari regardless of the herniation the next step is a CINE MRI to see if u have obstruction to the CSF  flow.

See this link to a "normal " brain - http://www.medhelp.org/user_photos/show/250219?personal_page_id=197028&photo_collection_id=20895
