    using any web site to decipher MRIs. Reading MRI is a detailed medical science that even some doctors do not alwaya agree with. You can have the same MRI, two doctors might come up with different conclusions.
    That is why we always stress that no one on this site should ever attempt to analyze anothers MRI report. It is doing everyone an injustice.
    I have looked at some of the various sites that help analyze MRI images and reports. Some go into a good amount of detail, others leave a lot out. I spent days reviewing a site that gave examples of MRI images to illustrate herinated discs at various spinal levels. Instead of helping, I think I started to diagnose other spinal alignments!
    I wouldnt discourage people from looking at those sites, but just take it for what it is.
    You and I are not going to be able to break apart a MRI image or report, more so the image.

  • I agree...and point taken..... learning terminology will not give us the knowledge base medical experts have ,and as often as not it just informs us about how complicated a given situation might be and at best it might guide us to ask good questions. I certainly do not suggest that what I do to gain what may just be a sense of control would help someone else.... we all cope differently....
