Possible Chiari 1 Malformation Question

Hi, I wonder if anyone can take a look at my daughter's mri to see if she has a chiari malformation 1. We have an appointment with a neurologist but not until June and she's been suffering from bad headaches 24/7 since May 2023. No meds have helped so far. Other symptoms are mainly constant pressure in her brain, brain fog, heterophoria that she wears prism glasses for when driving especially, overall fatigue, POTS diagnosis, etc. If it's not chiari, does anyone have any idea what the mass is below the cerebellum in her MRI? Is it supposed to be there? Thank you for any info you can offer. I hope this link works to view the mri.

I did answer your  other post, but one question I didn't ask there was she given a CINE MRI? This MRI is done w/wo contrast to watch the CSF flow in real time to see if there is an obstruction.. This is very important. MRI'S of the cervical spine, thoracic and Lumbar spine are very important too, to make sure there isn't the formation of a syrinx.
