I got the results from my brain MRI today - I picked up the radiologists report cold and my doctor of course never called me nor returned my phone call. I was hoping someone can help me interpretating his findings because I'm freaking myself out.
Directly abutting the superior colliculus is a 7x6x8 mm mildly FLAIR hyperintense mass. A punctate foci of susceptibility is noted anteriorly within the mass likely reflecting a small calcification. No acute intracranial hermorrhage, extracerebral fluid collection, or midline shift. No acute infarction. No abnormal susceptibility. The cerebral volume is appropriate for the patient'a stated age. The ventricles are normal in size and configuration. The visual paranasal sinuses are essentially clear. No suspicious marrow signal.
His impression was:
7x6x8 mm mass in region of the pineal gland which may represent a proteinaceous cyst. Thin section pre and postcontrast coronal and sagittal T-2 weighted imaging of this region is recommended for further evaluation provided there is no contraindication. No acute intracranial hemorrhage or transcortical infarction.
Any help figuring this out will really help ease my anxiety.
