I have multiple sclerosis and i just got a new MRI without contrast and then immediately following contrast but i have no idea what it means if someone could help me out the summary says
1. T2 and FLAIR hyperintense lesions demonstrated within the deep white matter bilaterally, consistent with demyelinating lesions. theses are consistent with multiple sclerosis
2. No evidence of a new demyelinated lesions. No abnormal areas of enhancement are noted.
Hi. This is pretty straightforward. Your MRI shows that in radiological terms at least (not, of course, the whole neurological picture), you have MS. This would be expected, considering that that's your diagnosis.
It also shows that your lesion load is stable. Nothing new is happening that can be measured in radiological terms.
