15 yr old, diagnosed with Lupus, scan shows shadow on right side of brain. What does it mean ?

My 15 year grandaughter, who has been diagnosed with Lupus has had a scan this week, which shows a shadow on the right hand side of her brain. She was in there for an hour and a half, so when they say it might be caused by my granddaughter moving, surely they took more than one image in that time. What does it all mean?

Hi Phil,

Please relax; seems like the shadow that appeared on the right hand side of your granddaughter's brain scan is more or less due to her moving.

Nothing to worry about.

Take care.
