I got a printed report in the mail, and things are looking good.
No acute intracranial abnormality.
No significant abnormality along my trigeminal or facial nerves.
Pineal cyst is stable since 2009, probably benign.
There are a few little “hyperintensities” in the right frontoparietal white matter, but of doubtful clinical significance (in every terms, who knows what that means – it’s probably nothing).
The thing is, I don’t have anything annotated on my disk, so I can’t see precisely what the radiologist is talking about. I have a pretty good idea that the three little dots in the frontoparietal region on the T2 Flair image are what he’s talking about. I’ll just have request an annotated copy, I guess. Maybe that will have something.
As Mr. Spock would say, “Fascinating…”
