Hi doctor,

Please check my contrast-enhanced MRI brain scan plates, especially the cerebellum part. Is the enhancement of the cerebellum normal or abnormal?



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

The MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) brain from the attached reports (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity) shows a normal cerebellum. The cerebellum image shared by you is only a single one; from what I see, there is no obvious abnormality. Enhancement is the uptake of contrast in any area, normal or abnormal. The enhancement in the image of the cerebellum shared by you is normal. It is important to look at your complete brain scan images because the loss of balance might be due to many causes, and a single image does not show the entire cerebellum.
