Few Foci Of T2 Prolongation In The Deep Cerebral White Matter
Could cryofibrinogenemia cause multiple t2 hyperintensities in the periventricular and deep white matter of the brain?
Mixed cryoglobulin: Most of the literature regarding cryoglobulinemia and neurologic complications is in reference to peripheral neuropathies and not central nervous system dysfunction. Hence, another cause should be sought for the mr abnormalities. Good luck and well wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Explain: Minimal punctate FLAIR/T2 hyperintensities are present in the subcortical & deep white matter of the cerebral hemispheres.(Otherwise normal)?
Here goes: I am unaware of why you required an MRI of brain, but the described lesions could be present due to migraine, prior head trauma, smoking, prior infections, even MS, but the description is not the common pattern. Does this help, or do you need more involved answers via Concierge visit? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is cerebral atrophy and T2 and FLAIR hyperintensities of the frontal white matter left greater than right mean?
Minimal right periventricular white matter signal abnormality seen on flair and t2. Tiny punctate focus in the subcortical white matter frontal lobe. Symptoms of joint pain in hands and right leg weak?
Possible Autoimmune: The symptoms and MRI suggest an autoimmune inflammatory condition. Ms is a contender but joint pains are not a usual feature of ms but suggest a rheumatological condition. While rheumatologic conditions may mimic ms, sometimes these disorders may coexist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If multiple t2 hyperintensities in periventricular and deep white matter of brain are described as being located in the centrum semiovale and corona radiata, does this location point to a cause?
MRI test found 10 small punctate foci of abnormal increased T2/FLAIR signal in white matter of both cerebral hemispheres in the subcortical region?
What does scattered small foci of t2 hyperintensity in the subcortical white matter means. this is from my mri brain w/o contrast test results?
These: are usually due to age-related microvascular changes, and are common incidental MRI findings as we age. However, there are other potential less-likely causes, so you should talk to your doctor about the significance of this finding in your particular case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
An MRI revealed thre are few tiny nonspecific foci of increased t2 weigted signal in the perivaentricular and subcortical white matter? Concerns?
No: Those t2 signals are often incidental findings. They are more common in migraine patients and patients with higher blood pressure. 2 tiny t2 lesions alone are not sufficient to diagnose multiple sclerosis. The MRI needs to be seen in conjunction with the clinical picture. Why did you get the mri? ...Read more
What does 2 hyperintense foci in the right frontal white matter and 1 hyperintense
focus in the left frontal
white matter mean? migraine 20yo
Non-specific finding: The findings you list are non-specific but are frequently seen in people with a history of migraines. It may be advisable to meet with a neurologist who can go over your history, review the reason the MRI was obtained in the first place and perform a detailed neurological exam to determine if further testing is required. ...Read more
What does multiple small nonspecific t2/flair hypertintensities in the peri ventricular and subcortical white matter of both cerebral hemispheres mean?
When MRI show multiple foci of increased t2 weighted flair signal intensity in the deep white matter tracts, is nortriptyline 10mg the best medicine?
Unclear: The findings you describe are radiological and generally don't represent active brain pathology. Infrequently they may associated with inflammatory processes or small vessel vascular disease. I would discuss it with a neurologist. Radiological findings are not usually treated unless there is a clear disease process associated with them. ...Read more
Hi, there are few small foci of high signal in the white matter of both cerebral hemisphere non specific but likely ischemic.What does mean in MRI mr?
Review with Doctor: Usually a few small foci are of little concern, and merely mean that there is some small vessel disease, as occurs with high blood pressure, diabetes, or even with migraines. However, 26 is a pretty young age for age related changes, and should at least be viewed by your doctor. ...Read more
MRI report....multiple nonspecific small subcortical foci of T2 prolongation in the left cerebrum. I'm 43 and started having migraine with aura at 41.
What does it mean when a MRI (brain) says there are ten small t2 hyperintense foci within the periventricular deep white matter?
"a small region of hypodensity is noted in white matter of superior to right para ventricular that can suggest focal ischemic area" iCT of brain. mean?
Cerebral ischemia: Focal ischemia indicates a specific region in the brain that has not gotten sufficient oxygen. It can be due to uncontrolled hypertension, trauma, stroke, atherosclerosis, etc. MRI is better than CT for imaging the brain. If you have concerning neurological symptoms, see a neurologist for further evaluation. http://sullydog.com/sullysites/qm/brainischemia101syllabus/syllabus/presentation1_9_1.html ...Read more
In a 45 yr old, what are the possible causes of multiple small t2 hyperintensities in periventricular and deep white matter of brain if spine clear and not in MS pattern? Significant or dismiss?
Usually strokes: It depends on the patient's history. Migraines have been associated with hyperintense spots in the brain. Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, hypertension, or hyperlipidemia may cause "silent" small strokes which can also take on a similar experience. Have a neurologist evaluate you as a whole in conjunction with the mri, not just the MRI alone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What does the results few tiny nonenhancing T2/FLAIR signal foci within the subcortical frontal & right temporal white matter of an MRI brain scan? scan was done for numbness on left side
It depends: Usually these types of findings are nonspecific, and most likely age related. They are generally asymptotic and there is no treatment. Occasionally they are a sign of other disorders, so speak to your physician to decide whether there is any follow up needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What does the results few tiny nonenhancing T2/FLAIR signal foci within the
subcortical frontal & right temporal white matter of an MRI brain scan?
Blood vessels: Most likely would be blood vessels. But that also depends on why you had the test in the first place. Usually in young people we don't see too many of these white or bright spots. As we get older they show up. Ask your doctor to explain the results on general ...Read more
