Deep White Matter Ischemia
What is hyper densities in periventricular white matter ischemia? Is it a serious problem.what is the treatment?
White matter is one of the two components of the central nervous system and consists of glial cells and myelinated axons that transmit signals from one region of the cerebrum to another and between the cerebrum and lower brain centers. White matter tissue of the freshly cut brain appears pinkish white to the naked eye because myelin is composed largely of lipid ...Read more
45 yo f MRIs: .
2009:3 foci of white matter hyperintensity. Possible remote small vessel ischemia
2015:scattered areas of hyperintensity.
Hard to know: Radiologists are trained to report on images without knowing anything about a patient. This way, everything gets included; even findings that are normal for most people. For a person with family history of early onset dementia and cardiovascular disease, for example, these findings could be meaningful. You can consider a virtual c/s w/ neurologist to review the images and in context. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Had a brain MRI and it states the findings are associated with mild traumatic brain injury (i was i an accident in dec 2011) states also the white matter found which is bilateral is no evidence for acute ischemia or cerebral parenchymal bleed. This was g
The : The good news is that there was no bleeding found in your brain or areas that are damaged due to lack of oxygen. Mild traumatic brain injury is a fancy way to say concussion. A concussion is defined as the result of the forceful motion of the head or impact causing a brief change in mental status or loss of consciousness for less than 30 minutes. Common symptoms include: fatigue headaches visual disturbances memory loss poor attention/concentration sleep disturbances dizziness irritability emotional disturbances depression seizures an important thing to note, is that these symptoms may not be present or noticed at the time of injury. It could take days or even weeks before any symptoms appear, and usually go unnoticed. There is nothing to worry about, you will be just fine. Take care. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
MRI white matter disease in bilateral cerebral hemisphere; this may be seen with moderate chronic ischaemia versus inflammation/demylination. Worried.
Few tiny foci of increased flair signal seen within the deep white matter of both cerebral hemispheres.. Should I be concerned with this ? Thank you
Does a sroke in the left anterior cerebral territory and deep white matter cause central post stroke pain syndrome?
Central pain: Central pain from stroke typically follows thalamic strokes. This part of the brain not in the anterior cerebral territory however this does serve the orbital frontal cortex that could in theory cause some changes in how your brain processes pain. Stroke in young adults requires an extensive workup including a hypercoagulable evaluation. Best health. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Mri shows areas of altered signal in the periventricular deep white matter..Punctate and nonspecific...What does this mean?
Flair hyperintensities seen within the deep white matter of the bilateral frontal and parietal lobes. Less then 3mm in size? Should i be worried?
Mri showed periventricular deep white matter T2 hyperintensity bilaterally and slightly asymmetrical 3 year old boy what does this mean in simple ?
Periventricular : Leukomalacia = damage to the white matter around the ventricles at some point in the past. It's more common in preemies beacause near the end of the 2nd trimester, that area of the fetal brain is very susceptible to damage from drops in blood flow & oxygen from any cause. It can cause a form of Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Diplegia, mild signs & symptoms, tight heel cords or no clinical signs. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My 3 yr old had an MRI 2 weeks ago. Results states: "minimal nonspecific periventricular deep white matter intensities". What causes this? Prognosis?
Very Common: That is a finding that is commonly found in normal patients. It does not seem like anything to worry about, although your 3-year-old must be having some serious problems if you needed an mri. Periventricular white matter intensities are not a diagnosis, though. You have to keep looking. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". For example, in a heart attack, a coronary artery is blocked so blood cannot get to the heart muscle beyond the blockage point. The heart muscle lacking ...Read more
