what does "cerebellar tonsils are borderline low in position but are not beaked" mean on an MRI? I can't find anything online on what the word "beaked" means. I have been having almost every single symptom of Chiari Malformation for the last 4 years. The MRI that says that is from 2010, &it's also a cervical MRI, which I didn't start having any of these symptoms until after that MRI and it is now 2014. I am getting a brain MRI within the next couple weeks to see if I have a Chiari Malformation. Any help in explaining what those terms mean (beaked) would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advanced
