Ex-PM Sharon's brain scans 'positive,' says aide

Raanan Gissin says MRI scans at Soroka hospital showed 'some kind of positive indication'

Hospital brain scans appeared to give a glimmer of hope for some improvement in the condition of ex-premier Ariel Sharon, who has been in a coma since suffering a stroke seven years ago, a former aide said on Friday.




Sharon was taken from the Tel Aviv hospital where he has lain since 2006 to the Soroka hospital in the southern Israeli city of Beersheva for MRI scans on Thursday, Raanan Gissin told AFP.


"The test was routine, but the results not entirely so," Gissin said. "There was some kind of positive indication."


He said that he had no further details.


Soroka spokeswoman Inbar Gutter said that Sharon had been at the hospital "for a few hours" on Thursday for checks before returning to Tel Hashomer hospital in Tel Aviv.


She could not comment on his condition or any procedures he underwent.


Sharon, 84, was admitted to the world-renowned Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem after suffering a massive stroke on January 4, 2006.


He was moved to the Tel Hashomer and has remained there in serious but stable condition ever since.
