I had a thoracic MRI .. ( I had a lot of tests blood and Knee MRI X-ray etc) I’m down to a brain MRI , which I realized I seen on the imaging . I picked up my scan and the images do show I think the sides and back of brain. To view the images you have to put the app on the computer. But I have a screen shot .. IF there was something bad as a Tumor could they see from these images? I believe this also shows the back of the eyes as well ? I got diagnosed with Lyme disease but after speaking with my husbands Doctor ( NYU lagone) in a casual convo the LYME tests are terrible and doctors are mainly diagnosing off of symptoms.
