I phoned up my daughters paediatrician and could not speak to him so asked his secretary what the results of my baby's MRI brain scan were. She looked it up and found that there were no cysts found but high signal in the white matter that was deemed to be suspicious and that she would need to be rescanned. My baby was premature and born at 28 weeks. The MRI was done when she would have been term. I am so worried as have no idea what these results mean and what implications this could have for my daughter. I cannot see her doctor for another 2 weeks. Please help! I am busy researching the internet and don't understand what I am looking for...
