Hi... I understand your concern.

MRI coronal and axial sequences are good.

Among these 2 axial images are the best please.

I’m just wondering what way referral should be written as they keep sending me for scans of lumbar sacral and pelvis
All normal
What is the area called below the pelvis as i think they need to order mri for something not under the title pelvis
The request needs to be written as -

MRI of bilateral ischial tuberosities (for comparison), including the pathway of sciatic nerves.

Hope this helps!
