Common findings: These are findings that are often found in every person's MRI of the brain that hold very little significance. You can say they are the "liver spots" of the brain. ...Read more

Have symptoms of MS per Dr.MRI which shows 3mm hyperintense lesions in L periventricular white matter & 2mm focus increased signal in R PVWM. MS?

Have symptoms of MS per  Dr.MRI which shows 3mm  hyperintense lesions in L  periventricular white matter & 2mm focus increased signal in R  PVWM. MS?

Hard to dx: MRI is not diagnostic of MS but suggestive and it is used to follow the disease process. The dx is made mostly by physical findings and over time. This could be MS but you need to have your doc put together all of the pieces of the puzzle to make the dx. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Explain? Rathe's cleft, epidermoid & arachnoid cysts are in diff., scatrd. foci T2 prolongation affecting the periventricular white matr. bi-lat 4-6mm

A bit more needed: I suggest you review the report either with the doctor who ordered it or a specialist they refer you to or arrange a virtual visit during which you share the whole report The meaning will be easier to understand with the whole report in hand. Cyst is a fluid filled space, Periventricular - around the ventricles. "Arachnoid" "epidermoid" are locations ...Read more

Termnl zones myelination seen in bilateral posterior periventricular white matter - brain MRI epilepsy protocol of my 13 yr son. What does it mean?

Unusual: Terminal zones of myelination refers to maturation of the covering of the nerves (myelin) in the brain. It's a bit unusual in 13 year old children. A child/pediatric neurologist would be better able to explain these findings to you in the context of your child's clinical condition. ...Read more

Husband:moderate to severe health anxiety/worries ofALS/no weakness/only Contraction Fasciculations/all drs say no ALS. 29yo. Cause of fasciculations?

Husband:moderate to severe health anxiety/worries ofALS/no weakness/only Contraction Fasciculations/all drs say no ALS. 29yo. Cause of fasciculations?

Other reasons for Fs: Anxiety can lead to a lot of diseases or disease like states. So you have to get this thought of ALS out of your mind because ALS does not develop under 50 years of Age....so you do not have any reasons to worry about ALS. Fasciculations are a sign of muscles under stress of some kind or another. Some medications can cause muscle problems like this. I would advise you to exercise your muscles dai ...Read more

MRI brain results Impression- there is cerebral atrophy with subcortical WMC, consistent wit microangiopathic disease, demyelination, or giliosis?

MRI brain results  Impression- there is cerebral atrophy with subcortical WMC, consistent wit microangiopathic disease, demyelination, or giliosis?

Covering the bases: That signal that is seen in patients who age is seen very frequently. Most of the time it is what has become known as microangiopathic disease or small vessel disease. Demyelination and gliosis come with a more notable history. Gliosis or scarring and demyelination also produces symptoms that MRI is useful for. Depends on why you had the MRI in the first place. The first entity more common than 2 ...Read more

Dad(52yrs)diagnosed w/cerebral vermian atrophy. Symptoms:uncoordinated movements, speech, swallowing difficulty(at times). Non-drinker. Is there a cure

Dad(52yrs)diagnosed w/cerebral vermian atrophy. Symptoms:uncoordinated movements, speech, swallowing difficulty(at times). Non-drinker. Is there a cure

Search for cause: The term "cerebral atrophy" is generic and does not explain why your dad is impaired. You truly need to have a full neurological evaluation, as the symptoms do raise concerns regarding many potential problems. Some of these issues could be associated with vitamin deficiencies, some from an inflammatory condition. Even might be due to a prion infection. Need to vigorously pursue. ...Read more

How helpful is hyperberic oxygen therapy for cerebral palsy ans autism?

How helpful is hyperberic oxygen therapy for cerebral palsy ans autism?

The very small : Amount of literature out there is between absolutely no effect and ambivalent when compared to sham air. So, there is no proof it works. I am all for anything that might help, but too many people spend the little bit of life savings they have on these therapies with false guarantees and I do not think that it appropriate. Hbot is good for many things, CP and autism are not them. ...Read more

I hv demyelinating (not MS) located in pontomedular & hippocampus, with axonal damage in fronto pariental right-left. What function will be affected?

I hv demyelinating (not MS) located in pontomedular & hippocampus, with axonal damage in fronto pariental right-left. What function will be affected?

Too nonspecific: The description you provide is too nonspecific to correlate a localization to a function. More than likely your doctor ordered this test for a certain reason, not the other way around. Suggest you speak to your health care provider who understands your symptoms to get a further determination of correlation. ...Read more

Hern l5s1.Leg&back pain.Foot drop.Failed s1nerveblock.Emg&conduct study with nuero&brain scan clear.The drop is unexplained.Any suggestions would help?

?second opinion: Your disc problem is a little low to explain foot drop, unless a disc fragment is lodged at l-5. If this involved peripheral peroneal nerve or nerve root, would usually be picked up on emg, but perhaps you have spinal cord extrinsic compression at some level, as another explanation. Mri of neck or mid-back should demonstrate whether this is an issue. Have a conference with your doctors. ...Read more

Is cortical dysrythemia (as eeg) curable with homeopathy (bufo rana30, oenanthe crocata-3x)? Please advise!

Hard to know: Without knowing your case, I cannot say how well those remedies (Bufo rana & Oenanthe crocata) apply to you. Hopefully you're working with a professional homeopath who has taken your case well and has prescribed accordingly. In general, homeopathic treatment has been known to help seizures -- but remedies are prescribed for the individual experiencing symptoms, not pathologic diagnosis alone. ...Read more
