Hello Dr.

My MRI Brain WWO contrast shows:

There is diffuse heterogeneous enhancement involving the superior frontal and parietal calvarium. No large discrete measurable lesions are seen.

There is stable mild prominence of the ventricles and cortical sulci secondary to mild diffuse volume loss.

What does this mean.

Regards,

Karen

It is not possible to make a specific diagnosis without a complete history and examination of the MRI films in person.

Patient age, symptoms, clinical history, and laboratory findings are important clinical factors in making radiological diagnosis.

The imaging appearance of calvarial lesions can indicate the lesion growth rate, and sometimes suggest a specific diagnosis or limit the differential diagnosis

In short, calvarial lesions that do not involve the actual brain tissue, can be caused by conditions like intraosseous hematoma or hemangiomas, multiple myeloma or conditions like fibrous dysplasia.

Clinical correlation would be needed to make a actual diagnosis.

Hence consulting with a doctor in person would be highly recommended.

I hope this helps.
