Fading Leisons?!?

HOLA PALS :D Hope you're all well. I had an MRI scan a couple of week ago and the neurologist always sends a letter to my GP with results and I also get a copy of the letter. It took myself and my mum a good while to work out what the letter actually said but basically suggests although they have found 1 new small leison, an old leison looks slightly less "conspicuous". I have a follow-up appointment on the 22nd May to discuss with the neuro but just wondered if anyone on here ever had results which showed shrinking or fading leisons? Is that even a possibility?

@katrinaf93 Some Neurologists and Professor types think that the fading /disappearance of Lesions could mean the disease is getting worse. Here's a link to some info about it. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/06/180604112441.htm


Hi Katrina, in some cases lesion fade is due to healing. The article cited above talks about lesions that are replaced by csf, so essentially brain loss. So it could be a good sign.
