Foci Of Periventricular Increased White Matter Increased T2 And Flair Signal
MRI test found 10 small punctate foci of abnormal increased T2/FLAIR signal in white matter of both cerebral hemispheres in the subcortical region?
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
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
A few scattered punctate foci of increased T2/flair signal of the supratentorial white matter which is nonspecific meaning?
See below: It means you may have tiny lesions in white matter where nerve fibers extend away from nerve cells. The increased signals may indicate areas of injury due to ischemia (lack of oxygen) or other causes. They are too small and few in number to be significant. If you are worried, discuss your concerns with your Dr. You can change your diet, exercise regularly, manage stress and quit smoking if you do. ...Read more
MRI results: scattered nonspecific foci of T2/FLAIR signal hyperintensity w/out associated mass effect w/in the supratentorial white matter. Meaning?
It is hard...: ...to comment on an MRI without knowing clinical details. The radiologist should have put his/her impression in the report and that may provide additional information. However, the physician who ordered the MRI would be the best person from whom to seek an explanation. Wish you the best. ...Read more
Worry? MRI:Parenchymal vol. loss of brain & min.T2 signal in periventric white matter & scatter foci of abnormT2 signal rt frontal/parietal subcortcal
Mri results Scattered punctate foci of incresead T2/FLAIR signal intensity are observed inthe subcortical and deep white matter, what it means?
It usually is an: incidental age-related finding due to chronic microvascular changes, but not always. A few foci at your age are probably nothing to worry about. However, you need to talk to your doctor about what it means in your particular clinical situation. ...Read more
I am 35 female MRI states Punctate increased FLAIR signal foci in the periventricular white matter bilaterally.
ABNORMAL MRI: The abnormal MRI may have a variety of causes, Migraine Headaches, HTN, Diabetes. Depending on your symptoms , Full lab work including evaluation for Lyme disease / VIT d deficiency/ b12 folic acid /thyroid studies/ Sjogrens Syndrome and Sarcoid evaluations. Also potentially a clotting work up. Follow up with your Internist and Neurology Consult ...Read more
What does multiple small nonspecific t2/flair hypertintensities in the peri ventricular and subcortical white matter of both cerebral hemispheres mean?
High signal MRI: This finding in MRI of brain is non-specific. Most of them are due to microvascular disease associated with high blood pressure and diabetes. Some due to old damage. Also can be seen in diseases such as multiple sclerosi. Your doctor will decide if he or she should go further base on your sign and symptoms. ...Read more
I have MS, what does few scattered foci of increased T2 signal intensity in the white matter mean from an MRI report mean?
Confirmation: If you have confirmed MS from other tests like a lumbar puncture and characteristic changes in your CSF, as well as clinical history that supports the diagnosis, then the foci of increased T2 intensity in the white matter may just be the areas in your brain that are being affected by the MS. Keeping track of these and their progression can help determine the progression of your disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What does mulitple(atlest 10)tiny t2/flair hyperintense foci in cerebral white matter, predominantly subcortical and deep white matter implies?
See your doctor: Hyperintense white matter signals may mean nothing clinically or could be related to a host of diagnoses, including multiple sclerosis, autoimmune, etc. It has to be correlated to an exam and other testing to make any sense of it, a lot of times it is an incidental finding and means very little clinically. Your doctor will help you understand what this report means to you clinically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Bilateral frontal lobe subcortical white matter showing evidence of small vessel ischemic changes. What does this mean?
Subcortical ischemia: 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). ...Read more
MRI found mild scattered foci of abnormal T2 signal are demonstrated in peri ventricular white matter, particularly along frontal convexities. ?
Non-specific finding: Really a non-specific finding, and in most cases normal, but really would need to see the images. Usually seen frequently in migraines; best to check with your doctor. ...Read more
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
Could a finding of multiple small nonspecific subcortical and deep white matter foci of T2 prolongation have any correlation with neuroborreliosis?
Possibly: Yes possibly but that's. not how it's diagnosed. You need clinical evidence ideally with lab confirmation ...Read more
What does scattered althought predominantely bilateral frontal, subcortical white matter punctuate foci of signal abnormality mean?
Maybe nonspecific: If you have migraine, such white matter lesions are usually posterior, and if you had head trauma, the location may be more anterior, but both head and neck trauma could cause some increased foci. The demyelinating lesions of ms would be periventicular at right angles, but in the elderly such lesions might be c/w microvacular angiopathy, or even binwanger's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Two MRIs both have shown "mild amount of signal hyperintensity in the periventricular white matter bilaterally." What could this mean?
The description: is not very specific, and in the absence of clinical context, it is difficult to assess the significance. Most likely it is an incidental finding of little concern, but talk to your doctor about it. ...Read more
