A 61-year-old male asked:
I had an mri of the brain and skull-base for a follow-up of a previous lesion. can the neuro-radiologist and/or neurologist look at that mri and see if there is or was acoustic neuroma? would they have noticed it if they weren't looking for it?

Be proactive: If you feel that prior MRI was either misread or a lesion overlooked, you can request a re-read by a radiologist or a neurologist.
