A Doctor Speak to English Dictionary PLEASE!
My DH got a report from his Dr. for his latest MRI. Some of it may be quite harmless doctor speak, but I would like to have a doctor speak to English dictionary to figure it all out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ask the doctor to tell you in layman's terms what the results are. You shouldn't have to go elsewhere to find out.

I agree that your Dr should tell you everything in layman's terms. In the meantime here is a site from National Institutes of Health that I have used quite frequently and successfully for my medical terminology classes, Medical Dictionary
Good luck with the translating!

Basic rule: the less understandable the doctor-speak the more benign the condition.

That's nice to know! I guess DH is perfectly healthy by the lines and lines of Dr. Gibberish!

ITA, if the report was sent to you, it should be in English.
