to take Advil round the clock. I've seen the MRI and I'm a little concerned. Curious about the grey and white areas.

The three images that you posted are the scout images. They are taken from a distance away so the entire part of the body can be seen. The dotted lines illustrate the planes of imaging. Or they are the planes that were sliced to give the images the neuro radiologist reviews If you look at the rest of your MRI. Each image in a series will be numbered and you can identify each image slice with the scout image. Understand? I would have to look at your entire study to make comments. But if you have your report you can attach the document and I can explain what each part means. Dr Frank
