Not as simple: In medicine, it is about the patient not the test. Radiologist need to report all findings, which occasionally could alarm and worry non medical person, especially if related to head. I suggest that you write and organize your questions, and meet with your eulogist again for answers. Not all image finding are related and relevant.
