Moderately Severe Supratentorial Small Vesel Chronic Ischaemia
My cat scan showed mild intracranial atrophy and mild supratentorial small vessel white matter disease?
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
81 year old mother, CT periventricular deep white matter changes and moderate small vessel iscjaemic disease. serious?
Is stable bilateral frontaoparietal white matter t2w/flair hyperintense signals, probably chronic microvascular ischemic changes called mild stroke?
MRI white matter disease in bilateral cerebral hemisphere; this may be seen with moderate chronic ischaemia versus inflammation/demylination. Worried.
MRI result: "Mild presumed chronic small vessel ischemic changes in the supratentorial white matter." Should I be concerned?
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
MRI Few punctate T2 and FLAIR hyperintense foci in the periventricular white matter, likely related to chronic small vessel ischemia.What it means.
My CT scan result shows - right frontal lobe subcortical white matter tiny chronic infarct- and mild cerebral atrophic changes. ?
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
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
38y f. Brain MRI shows left maxillary polyp, partial empty sella, small chronic ischaemic lesions in subcorticle frontoparietal white matter. Cure?
Nothing to cure: But try to prevent further damage. Maxillary sinus polyp is nothing to worry about unless sinus symptoms, then ENT consult. Partial empty sella cannot be fixed, and nothing to worry about unless abnormal pituitary function - may need to see an endocrinologist. Ischemic lesions may be within normal limits (allowed 1 per decade of life), but need to understand cause(s) and try to prevent more. ...Read more
I'm only 58 and my ct scan showed multiple zones of low attenuation commonly seen in the setting of a moderate degree of chronic microvascular degener?
Head ct: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, this is a vascular problem. Lowering risks: stop cigarettes, check cholesterol and diabetes regular exercise possibly statin and / or baby aspirin anyway depending on the details it migh tnot be vascular and could be toher diseases such as early alzheimers. These are the best we have for prevention, there are some drugs to treat also. ...Read more
Mild cerebral and cerebellar atropy, mild ventriculomegaly and mild periventricular ischaemic white matter pallor at the age of 55?
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
It depends.: In a young person that would be cause for concern. However, in elderly individuals these are common findings. ...Read more
Mri no contrast "incidental superficial left ventral pontine tegmentum tiny 3 mmt2 hyper intensity in keeping with a perivascular space"? Help please!
Chronic lacunar infarcts in deep gray nuclei. Are these significant in asymptomatic 72-year-old woman with controlled high blood pressure?
Help! What does having chronic inflammatory lesion with small emphysematous bullae at apical segment of left upper lobe mean?
I am not: entirely sure what they mean by chronic inflammatory lesion. You should probably ask your doctor. ...Read more
