MRI report: no news is good news
The MRI outfit finally dragged themselves into the twentieth century, and gave me a digital copy of the data. Here's a comparison picture of two of the lesions, courtesy of AMIDE. The picture is in the FLAIR modality, which, of the commonly-used MRI modalities, is the best for looking for MS lesions. The left image is from 2005, and the right image from 2006. You should be able to click on the image to get a 2x larger image, to which I've added a little red X under each lesion:
I abstained from Flagyl for five weeks prior to the MRI exam, so that anything that did enhance with gadolinium would have meant disease activity rather than inflammation produced by bacterial die-off due to Flagyl.
Again, these two images aren't directly comparable; for instance, the third lesion is also visible in the 2005 image, but not in this particular 2006 image; but that isn't because it disappeared, but rather because in the 2006 series it's in the next slice, not in this slice.
