It is a: normal appearance for the vessels to have "flow voids" on routine MRI....the moving blood does not generate an MRI signal due to the physics involved. So what you are reporting is a description of a completely normal finding. No need to worry. ...Read more

Just had a MRI on brain it says I have a venous differential adnormality in opptiucal lobe what could this mean not there 8months ago?
