I know nothing about MRI's, but I found the following on the Merck Manuals site that might be helpful:http://www.merckmanuals.com/professional...sonance-imaging
Among other things, it explains T1 and T2 signals. And I noticed this sentence: "T2-weighted images optimally show fluid and abnormalities (eg, tumors, inflammation, trauma)."
To my uneducated mind, this is saying that if the MRI image is weighted for T2 signals, the image can show evidence of tumors, inflammation, or trauma.
So could the comment be saying that the increased T2 signal suggests mild inflammation in T6? Mild worsening of the original trauma? I'm just throwing out guesses here.
