Mild Ischemic Changes
Is stable bilateral frontaoparietal white matter t2w/flair hyperintense signals, probably chronic microvascular ischemic changes called mild stroke?
Described often: 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. ...Read more
If MRI Findings list Mild Diffuse Small Vessel Atrophy associated w/ischemic changes but Impression says ExamWithin normal limits should I worry?
Mom is 79 brain CT scan: moderate cerebral volume loss, mild widening of the cortical sulci, mild white matter microvasc. Ischemic disease serious?
Depends: Most likely these are aging changes that have occurred with time. ...Read more
Is chronic diffuse sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy with predominant external & secondary demyelinative changes a long-term disability?
It can be: Sensorimotor peripheral neuropathies have many types and various causes. Some of them can be disabling, even long term in some cases. A thorough search will have to include blood tests and urine tests. In some cases spinal tab (lumbar puncture) can be necessary. In delineating the diagnosis. ...Read more
MRI result: "Mild presumed chronic small vessel ischemic changes in the supratentorial white matter." Should I be concerned?
If a person has microangiopathic ischemic changes and involutional changes in his brain, could this cause frequent headaches?
No: At your age it would be more surprising if you DIDN'T have such changes. This is extremely common, and doesn't cause headaches. Someone your age who has the new onset of frequent headaches should see their doctor. There are a couple of diagnoses that should be ruled out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
MRI lingo: This is a description of white spots seen, using t2 software, within the white matter of brain in a nonspecific fashion. Although these could be non-diagnostic, they may well be associated with some atherosclerotic changes associated with aging. Smaller blood vessels are noted here, and unless you have had cerebrovascular events, it is unlikely that these represent strokes. ...Read more
Mild periventricular and subcortical abnormal T2 and FLAIR signal is
nonspecific, but likely representative of chronic microvascular disease ?
Need clarification.: Tiny white matter spots like these can be due to small vessel vascular insufficiency, as mentioned, as well as conditions like multiple sclerosis and Lyme disease. Or they can have no specific cause at all. But in a young person like yourself, a good examination and testing would be in order. ...Read more
