Brain MRI WITH contrast and focusing specifically on the inner-ear area. An MRI without contrast might show an acoustic neuroma, but I think that to rule out even a small acoustic neuroma, you need to have it done with contrast. (That is the "gold standard.")
i have had a mri scan and allthough im told my brain was ok they found a thickening on the vestibular nerve i am having another scan where they inject dye into you.
Any ideas what this can be
Did you ever find out what your issue was? Hubby has what im pretty sure is an acoustic neuroma. They did a MRI without dye and they say there is buildup of fluid. They want to do another CT.
