I'm confused yet again

Could someone please tell me what this means?  ON the T2 and FLAIR weighted sequences there is a mild degree of white matter abnormalities manifested as rounded to slightly ovoid foci of increases signal. most evident in the supraventricular white matter bilaterally near the brain convexity, greater on the right than on the left with a few other scattered white matter lesions also identified. This is compatible with the clinical history of m.s.  All replys appreciated.

No test such as a MRI rules MS in or out. The Neurologist takes a history, does a neurological test, reflexes, etc. and looks at symptoms. If he thinks you have MS then you get a diagnosis. For most of us we go through many tests and have the Neurologist watch us over time before they know whether it is MS.

Hi Tasha -

In a vacuum it sounds like there is evidence of lesions in in the supraventricular white matter, as well as smaller ones in other regions.

Was there a contrast MRI done as well. How do these findings compare to thofe of your MRI in July of 2012?

Have you found a new neuro?
