Resolved Question:

this is a follow up question from your answer,how often is it neccesary to follow up with another mri. i had an mri 8 months ago because one pupil is larger at diff times and different degrees than the other, the results were ok. i followed up with my opthamologist in april. your expert said a follow up with my nuerologist is not neccesary because i saw my opthamologist. I was curious how often a follow up mri is neccesary?

HelloCustomer

 

Do you recall the name of the Expert who helped you last time? If so, I can send this question to him. Or I can answer it for you if you would like.

Hello,

 

I am assuming that you are talking about your anisocoria (pupils of different sizes). Once you have had a good neurologic workup (including MRI), there is probably no need to keep chasing it. I don't think you really need routine follow-up MRIs unless there is a change that is noted. Or unless you develop some other neurologic symptoms. Most anisocoria are benign.

 

Hope this helps and thank you.
