brain mri of 6 year old girl without contrast. she has starring spells,cognitive issues,developemental delays.there is symmetric increased signal in the parahippocampal gyri and posterior hippocampal formations best seen on axial flair images.findings are not well seen on coronal images.white matter volume and maturation is within normal limits.questionable parahippocampal gyrus signal alteration bilaterally.otherwise within normal limits.
How are you? What symptoms are present and what other diagnostic tests were done? I recommend that you discuss the results with her attending physician for proper evaluation especially if coronal images are not clear. Factors such as her medical history, symptoms present and results of the diagnostic tests are important considerations also. Take care and do keep us posted.
