I've been reading about how there was a study that could diagnose autism using MRI scans of the brain. This doesn't seem to be part of the normal diagnosis process yet. (?)
I had an MRI aout 10 years ago, long before I ever thought about autism. The clinic still has my scans. Is it worth requesting them to be posted to me? Is there any point? I have my second assessment appointment next week.
I would guess that it is because almost everyone has a list of comorbidities, it is difficult to pinpoint some feature and say it is a clearcut case; something which has already been said about DNA tests. In both cases, I daresay they will eventually unravel all the multiple strands of evidence. But it is likely to be years coming; by which time, both scans and tests will also be greatly improved.
