So I just got my results back for an MRI IAC that I had done without contrast on a 3T scanner 2 weeks ago:
“T2 axial images through the brain were supplemented by fine T2 axial and coronal sequences through the IAMs. There are a number of foci of T2 high signal mainly in the periventricular white matter of both cerebral hemispheres largely perpendicular to the lateral ventricles ad a possible further area in the right middle cerebellar peduncle. no cerebellopontine angle mass lesion is seen. The appearances are suggestive of a demyelinating process. In particular there is no evidence of a vestibular schwannoma and both membranous labyrinths appear normal. Movement artefact obscres some of the fine detail images through the IAMs.”
I will be seeing a neurologist shortly but in the mean time if anyone can make sense of the above and answer these two questions I would be most grateful:
Do you think this is something I should be worried about? Multiple sclerosis?? Or is it possible this could somehow be benign? I just have tinnitus and random 2-3 second muscle twitches around the body every now and then.
Can these results (high signal foci) somehow be reversed with good diet or something of that sort?
Any more information about this would be great, I’m freaking out a bit until I see the neuro…
