Only if measured &: If the images obtained by MRI were properly obtained (T1 or T2 weighting), formatted (reconstructed in the sagittal or coronal plane), & evaluated (someone measured it) could you be assured of knowing whether it was enlarged or not. Most of these occur, but asking the Radiologist or the doctor who ordered the test will probably put your mind at ease. Use HealthTap Prime. Thanks for your question.
