    I was able to put my disc into my laptop & saw the images. The only problem was, I had no idea what I was looking at!

    not many here have a clue.
    We could have looked at scores of MRIs and still not really understand them.
    I have a whole book and about 30 gig worth of my X-Rays and MRIs (always get copies).
    I look at them and look at them .... and still cant really see anything..

    Now. once a doctor points out a problem on a MRI, aha, it all makes sense.

    Thats why its better leaving the ready of MRI's to doctors and not us.

    Reminds me of one member, who talked about being able to read MRIs and give a detailed analysis. Of course that is a forum violation, but this is going back to the early 2007's Someone took him up on their offer to read... So, they provided this person with a MRI of what appeared to be the spine. The person claiming to understand MRIs then went on to tell us what the problem was, which discs where bad, where a nerve was impacted, etc. Thing is , the person giving him the MRI image played a trick, it was a MRI of a dog, not a human!

    I dont like games and would never allow someone to do something like that. But it illustrated a point many years ago which still holds true. Leave the analysis of any diagnostic test in the hands of a professional.
