Temporal horns

Your horns

Are,

I am afraid to say,

too small

to be consistent with Alzheimer’s

I will need to

Consider

An alternative diagnosis,

Perhaps

I can squeeze

Something else out of the CT machine,

Or,

I need to pass you through the MRI

And/or

A lumbar puncture

And

Some serology

is always

worthwhile

To exclude,

Well, to exclude or refute.

 

Yes, your horns are just too normal.

 

*Temporal horns – Temporal-horn size estimation on a CT brain scan is said to correlate with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Type Dementia. See here for more.
