How does an MRI of CPM differ from the MRI of PRES? Would a trained neurologist be able to distinguish the two?
A trained neurologist, radiologist, and even anyone good at looking at MRIs should be able to tell the difference.

This is because of the anatomical area affected.

CPM affects the pons, which is in the brainstem area of the brain.

PRES affects the parietal and occipital lobes, a completely different area of the brain than CPM affects.

So, the difference between these two should be obvious, and never be confused.
