MRI white matter disease in bilateral cerebral hemisphere; this may be seen with moderate chronic ischaemia versus inflammation/demylination. Worried.
MRI showed moderate supratenatorial white matter disease suspicious of demyelinating process. Multiple nodular foci periventricular Could you explain?
Concern for MS, But: Phyllis, talk to the doctor who ordered the MRI, since he/she can interpret the MRI in the context of the symptoms that brought you to the clinic. In some cases, periventricular white matter lesions are the result of migraines, old head trauma, neuron migration issues, or MS. It is hard to know from just a description of the MRI which is the cause. Good Luck and Stay Healthy! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Moderate plaque bilaterally with shadowing. In light of the limitations related to shadowing plaque, consider further evaluation with followup CT angi?
Carotid doppler: Your carotid arteries were heavily enough calcified that the calcifications were blocking the ultrasound beam enough that the degree of carotid stenosis cannot be evaluated, thus the suggestion for ct angio. Heavy calcification may also effect the ct angio too. Mra (magnetic resonance angiography) would be another consideration which would not be effected by the calcium. ...Read more

Arteriosclerotic internal carotid & vertebro basilar arteries predominantly the left vertebrobasilar segment appearing tortuous with slight prominence?
No, usually...: Seeing renal vascular calcification is not uncommon and usually an incidental finding on imaging studies for other causes such as hematuria, kidney infection, stones, etc. . Of course, such patient needs to look into if having similar calcification in other arteries like aorta, since it is merely a part of systemic vascular disease. Besides, kidney function and size have to be watched and.... ...Read more
CT showed mild cardiomegaly and Atherosclerotic vascular calcification but echocardiogram showed no issues. Should I consult a cardiologist?
Symptoms?: Are you having symptoms? If yes then it would be worthwhile to obtain a cardiac evaluation. If you are not having chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations or exertional restriction, your primary health care provider can most likely manage your issues. Sounds like you would benefit from life style modification to reduce cholesterol and lipids and monitor blood pressure. Stop smoking if you do. ...Read more

radial artery is narrowed in calibre with eccentric calcific foci in its midportion causing partial occlusion. What is calcific foci?
MRI scan shows two small focal flair hot spots in either frontal lobes subcortically. Mild peri ventricular gliosis. Age related mild diffuse atrophy.
Probably not...: ...significant. A few small lesions can be seen in many patients without an underlying problem. If there is any concern, then a repeat MR in 4-6 months can be performed. Without any interval change, then you should not worry. However, atrophy at your age is more worrisome and not common, and your Doctor should examine you closely for any underlying cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Result for my brain MRI -asymmetric decreased attenuation in the left basal ganglia, variant dilated perivascular spaces or punctate chronic lacune. ?
MRI report: This is language used in radiology to describe what they see. Ordinarily, they cannot distinguish a small stroke (lacune) from a perivascular space. A "puntate lacune" though is very small. It is probably just the side view of a blood vessel (aka perivascular). Do you smoke? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have diabetes mellitus? Atrial fibrillation? These are stroke risk factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Consider sarcoidosis: Sacoidosis can cause diffuse micronodular changes in lung tissue and in the less common cases of cardiac infiltration a dilated nonischemic cardiomyopathy (may also cause a restrictive cm). Other possibilities include viral or other chronic inflammatory conditions which affect the lungs and heart simultaneously. ...Read more
