Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello doc
Doctor :   Pls. give me few secs. to go through your query.
Doctor :   Ok it seems that I got a rough picture of the MRI Report.
Doctor :   It might be an Epileptic problem, but the lesion cannot be seen in an MRI.
User :   ok
User :   this is my Routine MRI sequences obtained of brain : tiny focal signal alternation noted at cortical left frontal region measures about 5*2mm of non-specific appearance
User :   what that mean
Doctor :   It means that the blood supply to the frontal region may be altered or it may be poor in perfusion but not a tumor.
User :   so i should not get too tense in that and see another doctor ?
Doctor :   Yes, I would say that it is an Epileptic problem and does not indicate a Tumor.
User :   ok thank very much doctor
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me.
Doctor :   Take care, Bye for now.
