Your so very speedy response to my enquiry about my MRI scan was very helpful and certainly served to put my mind at ease
Believe it or not, I have only within the last hour received a copy of the MRI report which reads as follows;-
" MR Angio Head
There are a few non-specific foci of signal change within the cerebral white matter. The right lateral ventricle is dilated in its mid portion and is associated with linear periventricular signal change, suggestive of an old mature ischaemic lesion. No vascular abnormality has been demonstrated."
Quite apart from not understanding it, I hope to see the consultant this evening when perhaps he may explain it, I find it difficult to reconcile this with the EEG report where the comment commenced by saying "Unequivocally abnormal ". I thoght this to be quite strong and specific language and highly contrary to what the MRI report says.
Is it reasonable that there may be such a strong contradiction?
