MRI BRAIN W WO CONTRAST
9/13/2016 12:23 PM
INDICATION: R53.1: Weakness;
R20.2: Paresthesia of skin;
TECHNIQUE: Multiplanar, multisequence MR imaging of the brain was performed
without the administration of IV contrast. Subsequently, post-contrast images
were obtained after the intravenous administration of 7.5 mL Gadavist contrast.
Parenchyma: There is mild increased T2 signal along the undersurface of the
corpus callosum near the callososeptal interface. In addition, there are several
bilateral foci of periventricular, primarily periatrial, T2 signal abnormality,
for example on series 3 image 96. There is no cystic change or ventricular
volume loss. There is no focally restricted diffusion or pathologic
Ventricular system: Normal.
Meninges/extra-axial spaces: Normal.
Arterial/venous flow voids: Normal.
Calvarium/skull base: Normal.
Sinuses/tympanomastoid cavities: Normal.
Post-contrast: No pathologic enhancement
Abnormal hyperintensity along the undersurface of the corpus callosum at the
callososeptal interface in addition to periventricular, primarily periatrial
white matter lesions as discussed above. Findings may reflect demyelinating
disease in the appropriate clinical setting, although there is no evidence of
active demyelination on MR. Correlation with relevant laboratory and exam
findings is requested.

No acute brain conditions, multiple sclerosis to consider.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question in details and understand your concerns.
MRI results and your symptoms point towards multiple sclerosis as the most possible condition.
There are no brain tumors, vascular malformations, or acute diseases, so, you need to settle down and to discuss with your Neurologist about the multiple sclerosis diagnosis, if he needs other tests to confirm or exclude it ( spinal tap, evoked potentials ), and about treatment.
Hope I helped you.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
These findings don't indicate anything sinister.
Since reflexes, balance and strength are normal, even if the multiple sclerosis will be confirmed, it means that it is in very first stages.
On the other hand, peace your mind, these findings after medical examination don't indicate anything sinister.
Hope I helped you.
Wishing you good health.
