Here is My Question:
Is it possible to have a first thoracic spine lesion with stable brain MRI over 10+ years? Or is it more likely that the lesion (called focal signal abnormality on MRI) is caused by something else? Thank you for your time.
There are several possible explanations for the apparent emergence of a new lesion on a thoracic cord MRI. For the sake of my reply I will assume that you have undergone MRIs of the thoracic spine in the past and they did not report any 'focal signal abnormalities'
