MRI Result meaning- 3 year follow up
« on: November 30, 2018, 08:18:07 pm »
I had middle fossa surgery Oct 2015. MRI follow ups show what they hope is scarring so they are watching yearly. This time there was a small change but nothing too significant. MyChart report said
"Diagnosis- Vestibular schwannoma (H)" Does this mean I still have a tumor? What does (H) mean? Thank you so much for any feedback :)

Probably means the original diagnosis of VS is the reason for the follow up MRI.
