determining degradation without the old MRI

Is it possible for a radiologist to make a determination on degradation from an MRI in 2014 to one just done a week ago without seeing the one from 2014? I feel as if I've been lied to yet again

Thanks for posting your query on this forum.
Unless pictures are compared it is not possible to comment on any further deterioration. The comment may be more general mentioning about generalised degeneration. Unless images are compared comment on progress of a condition or degeneration cannot be more.

Hope this helps.
