This is Dr. David

was the MRI scan done with IV gadolinium contrast?

to look right, you need the abducens or 6th cranial nerve in the right eye to work and the 4th cranial work to work on the left eye.

if no contrast was given, small lesions in the brain can be missed.

if open MRI scan, then image quality could be poor as well.
