MRI Scan 1998

This is a horizontal slice through the head at eye level, viewed from underneath.  The front of the head is at the top and the tumour is highlighted, 3cm from the left ear, which appears on the right of the scan.  The scale marks are at 1cm intervals, from which it can be seen that the tumour is about 1cm in diameter - fortunately it was diagnosed when it was really quite small. 

MRI Scan 2001

I had another MRI scan about 28 months after the operation to check on an unrelated problem, which proved to be clear.  However, it clearly shows the area of my head which was excavated and filled with fat from my abdomen.  This scan is similar to the one above but taken at a greater tilt to the horizontal, so it is difficult to make direct comparisons.
