Is stable bilateral frontaoparietal white matter T2W/FLAIR hyperintense signals, probably chronic microvascular ischemic changes called mild stroke?

Stroke

Stroke
These small micro vascular changes seen on mri are called "lacunar infarcts", which is a result of uncontrolled blood pressure for a long time.

No

Multiple_sclerosis
the study shows age and vascular change in white matter . this is usually a specific findind and is noy consistent with ms or autoimmine disease

Dr. Alon Seifan answered:

Mild genaralized atrophy and chronic white matter ischemic changes in my mom report is it serious matter pls tell me?

Maybe

Hypercholesterolemia
Mild general atrophy can be seen on ct scans of people with or without symptoms. Chronic white matter ischemic changes can also be seen in symptomatic or asymptomatic people. Be sure your mom gets checked for obstructive sleep apnea, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. These can cause ischemic changes.

What is mild chronic ischemic changes in bilateral periventricular white matter?

Described often

Multiple_sclerosis
Presume on MRI, white matter lesions as noted, which are usually nonspecific, but can be associated with hypertension, diabetes, or high blood fats causing "hardening of the arteries" (aka, microvascular angiopathy). This pattern might be consistent with MS in some cases, so needs correlation for relevance. Not a description of stroke, but an indication for prevention of future stroke.

Dad,66,is affected with "Chronic Ischemic Changes in periventri white matter" and "Disprop prominence of ventri system c/p to cortical sulci" cure?

Chronic ischemia

Ischemia
What you are seeing on the MR are common aging changes seen on MR. As for a "cure" being available, not at the moment and likely years before any solution.

Bilateral frontal lobe subcortical white matter showing evidence of small vessel ischemic changes. Is this serious?

NONSPECIFIC

Lobe
Although the films were read as suggesting ischemia, location might also suggest prior head trauma, congenital lesions of no consequence, genetic or hereditary issues, even underlying inflammatory condition. This is only "serious", if clinically you are having stroke symptoms or you possess uncontrolled blood pressure or elevation of blood lipids. Likely quite non-diagnostic.

Bilateral frontal lobe subcortical white matter showing evidence of small vessel ischemic changes. What does this mean?

Subcortical ischemia

Lobe
This translates to changes in the smaller blood vessels that lead to loss of blood flow to the area and then scarring. Somewhat like a small silent stroke and frequently seen in people with migraines. The opinions about this have swayed from very worried, to common and mundane and more recently back to looking to stop the damage (help the blood flow, oxygen and glucose status optimize).

Dr. Joseph Accurso answered:

38y F. Brain MRI shows left maxillary polyp, partial empty sella, small chronic ischaemic lesions in subcorticle frontoparietal white matter. Cure?

Nothing to cure

Cerebrum
but try to prevent further damage. Maxillary sinus polyp is nothing to worry about unless sinus symptoms, then ENT consult. Partial empty sella cannot be fixed, and nothing to worry about unless abnormal pituitary function - may need to see an endocrinologist. Ischemic lesions may be within normal limits (allowed 1 per decade of life), but need to understand cause(s) and try to prevent more.
