Sharon's brain scans 'positive'
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.
