Take this with a few grains of salt. And don't call me in the morning...

Source: Trump went to Walter Reed for a Positron Emission Tomography scan of his brain.

They do not have one in the White House either records show either.

1. PET scan

This allows doctors to:

check for cancer
determine if cancer has spread to the brain
diagnose dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease
differentiate between Parkinson’s disease and other conditions
prepare for epilepsy surgery
Your doctor may have you undergo a brain PET scan regularly if you’re undergoing treatment for brain disorders. This can help them monitor the success of your treatment.

4. covering up his obvious unfitness needs to be added to impeachment.

 

dr ronnie feelgood's exam was expressly supposed to evaluate his fitness for command. that was the public debate at the time.
this is not just a physical. this is a standard protocol in the military. this was a specific set of tests that are recorded somewhere.

he corrupted a naval officer to lie from the white house podium.
he tried to award that treason w a cabinet post, until john testar stepped in.

it's hard to remember all the little scandals. we all knew it was one more pile of bs, and went on to the next outrage.
but this was a dereliction of duty that should land dr ronnie in the brig till the end of his days.

and it is so emblematic of the one and only playbook that this hive of criminals knows. and it is as plain and simple as the american people.

5. Was the second sentence written by someone having a stroke?

"They do not have one in the White House either records show either."

6. PET Scans are Never Part of Any Executive Physical So Trump Had a Suspected Medical Issue

Folks familiar with nuclear medicine testing will know PET scans are done infrequently and never used as the initial scan for patients. I bet this protocol would not differ for Trump. PET scans are higher tech and used to get a more definitive picture of a tumor identified via other testing.

8. Scan of his brain.

If they claim to have found "nothing" we should take that literally.

9. If true.....

....Brain Imaging

Brain imaging is indicated in all individuals with symptoms of FTD to rule out structural causes. MRI scanning will identify small vessel ischemia, subdural hematomas, strategically placed tumors and hydrocephalus. Additionally, the pattern of brain atrophy can support the diagnosis. Severe “knife-edge atrophy” of the frontal and/or anterior temporal lobes may be seen. Often this is asymmetrical. There is often relative sparing of the posterior head regions. However, new research indicates that atrophy of the parietal lobe is found in many genetic cases.

The MRI is more sensitive for assessing vascular changes and subtle patterns of atrophy, but it requires an individual to lie still for 15 to 30 minutes. If the individual is unable to tolerate this, or if they are severely claustrophobic, a CT scan may be more realistic. If the MRI or CT scan does not show atrophy, and the diagnosis remains unclear, a fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scan or SPECT (single proton emission CT) scan may be considered. FDG-PET scans are more specific, but are costly. They show functional changes in brain glucose metabolism, and are often positive earlier than MRIs. The SPECT scan is less costly, but it reflects blood flow more than metabolic change, and is felt to be less sensitive for FTD.

The FDA has approved 3 different versions of a PET tracer for amyloid – currently valuable to FTD diagnosis as a negative scan ruling out Alzheimer’s disease.'
