I posted this originally in a different question directed at definitely dx'd, but am interested in other responses. Who out there has had experiences where the radiologist reads mri as one thing, and then the MS neurologist reading it totally different.
7/31 radiologist said consider MS...1st nuero said there were old lesions and it was a demlylenting disease but not comfortable saying definite MS...probably MS 2nd neuro at MS clinic said not MS, normal MRI did order repeat MRI
9/09 2ND MRI can't rule out demylenating disease, abnormal MRI....2nd neuro MS clinic, resident said pretty normal....head of dept said normal...but did say we are going to find out what this is.
Did you have the same experience?
Who do you believe. If the neuro is always right why have a radiologist read the images? I hope someone can answer that question.
