In January 2013, when Clara was 4 months, she had to do a CAT scan because her ENT doctor wanted to check on her middle and inner ears and her airway as well. And now, finally, I´ve got the CD´s with the scans.
Translating the report, you can read the following:
Brain parenchyma without valuable focal or diffuse densiometric alterations. No relevant changes at the ventricles volume morphology, specially signs of hydrocephalus.
Permeable groove cystern spaces, with discrete prominence of the frontal-temporal extra cerebral space, this fact without particular meaning at this age group.
Reduction of the posterior fossa volume related to the smaller diameter of the occipital hole, connected with the achondroplasia diagnosis. There exists consequent diminution of the cephalorachidian fluid at the occipital hole and the skull-vertebral union, with probable modelling/compression of the bulbo medular transition, aspect more perceptible in the sagittal reconstruction.
Permeable brain sutures and the skull-cap has a slight brachicephalus configuration. …
Both middle ears with filling. Nasal fossa with regular dimensions, without relevant stenosis or choanal atresia. Sinus cavities with reduced space. Coat thickening of the cavum pharingeum with consequent reduction of the pharyngeal lumen in this airway segment.
