MRI 2016

Lyn's doctor had asked that a new MRI be done.  The results are in and they're nothing shocking or unusual.

Lyn's brain is still looking pretty normal.  There's no significant loss of volume in her brain yet.  In five years, there could be substantial loss of volume and ultimately as much as 100 grams lost.  There is also no acute or sub-acute evidence of infarct.  In other words, she has no evidence of dead tissue as a result of loss of blood supply.  The ventricles are still normal in size.  As the volume of her brain decreases, they will increase in size.  There is no sign of aneurysm nor any abnormal structures in her brain.

So, what does this tell us?  Nothing new or different.  It just provides us with another comparative data point.
