Hi MM,
You might be surprised how fast two months pass.  Keep in mind that you perhaps can view your pics but you probably won't understand any of what you see.

Reading MRIs is such a skill that even our dear Quix won't touch them.  Those radiologists study this for years - be sure to get a copy of the report that goes with your pics.

be well, Lu

I agree with Lu about seeing the images but being unable to make heads or tails out of them but I can't say that hasn't stopped me from trying :-). I'm usually wrong about what I think is important but my neuro is kind and let's me ask away with all my questions.

Besides, just out of curiosity it begs to be looked at.  I challenge anyone on here to have possession of your CD disc with the MRI images and not look at it. Human nature.

Don't forget Lu's reminder about getting the report that goes with the disc.

Let us know how things go.

  Ditto what Lu and Ren said....Looking at the disc won't mean a thing to you or
know what you are even looking at.....It is the Radiologist report that goes w/ it
that will give you answers to your questions....then you could always put the disc in
and try to see what the report is saying in conjunction w/ the disc.....Play Detective....
Lol.....
