Been sooooo busy I hadn't even checked to see if they had posted this report to MyChart. Not that there's much to see.

UMM 0474 - MRI BRAIN WWO CONTRAST / ACCESSION # 999999999
PROCEDURE REASON: Abnormality of gait
* * * Physician Interpretation * * *
MRI BRAIN WWO CONTRAST
HISTORY: Abnormal gait. Clinical concern for possible demyelinating process. Routine follow-up
TECHNIQUE: Brain MRI with demyelinating disease protocol with and without gadolinium.
MR Contrast: Gadavist
MR Contrast Volume (ml): 10
MR Contrast Route of Administration: Intravenous
COMPARISON: MRI Brain on 09/14/2013
Findings: Few foci of T2/FLAIR hyperintensity scattered in the brain parenchyma, along the periventricular, and asymmetric T2/FLAIR hyperintensity adjacent to the right occipital horn. There is corresponding T1 hypointensity and no enhancement. Extent of signal change is very limited, but this appearance can be seen as a sequela of
New T2 Lesions: Zero
Interval Improvement: Not applicable.
New Enhancing Lesions: Zero.
T2 Burden of Disease: Mild.
Parenchymal Volume Loss: None.
Other Significant Findings: Morphology the brain is otherwise normal. Major intracranial arterial structures and dural venous sinuses show typical flow void consistent with patency by spin echo criteria.
Stable, nonspecific intracranial deep white matter lesions can be seen in the setting of multiple sclerosis. No new T2 lesions or enhancing lesions.
