"...Slight asymmetry noted in the left frontal and parietal lobes which is smaller than right with associated blurring of the gray-white matter interface in the left frontal lobe may represent underlying cortical dysplasia..."
This gives him one more piece of evidence that the brain abnormalities are only on the left side. The PET scan results from last month showed abnormalities in the left parietal, temporal and occipital lobes. I hate that it is showing abnormalities in a new area of the left hemisphere BUT at least it is still the LEFT hemisphere.
With this new evidence, Dr. Chugani is GOING TO PRESENT SOPHIE'S CASE TO THE SURGICAL COMMITTEE on October 27th as long as the AMT PET scan does not show any abnormalities on the right hemisphere. Surgery is tentatively scheduled to begin on November 21st.
