  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

Often times when u have MRI's done at diff locations by Diff radiologists u get diff opinions...and diff angles and slices that can make the herniation, which many Drs use as criteria to determine Chiari smaller , thus below the standard....

The best way I can explain this is to imagine the slices like a pear cut into 3rds...upside down the slices to the left or right will be similar is size...and the one in the middle can appear larger...so depending on which one u see first can change thoughts for some...so if the first radiologists saw the center slice and it was with in the range for chiari...and then the next MRI they looked at the left or right slice and it appears smaller and may be just below or at the minimum for Chiari...

Do ask the Drs more questions, with spina bifida occulta it did not go away...
Do u have a chiari specialist?

I hope I made sense and did not confuse u all more.
