Nonspecific White Matter Changes In Brain
Mri brain final mild nonspecprcific high signal intensities in the pods. l high signal intensity in periventricular white matter right cerebral?
White matter is one of the two components of the central nervous system and consists of glial cells and myelinated axons that transmit signals from one region of the cerebrum to another and between the cerebrum and lower brain centers. White matter tissue of the freshly cut brain appears pinkish white to the naked eye because myelin is composed largely of lipid ...Read more
MRI Brain/IAC for hearing loss. few scattered foci high signal in subcortical whites matter likely small vessel ischemic change. could this be MS?
See neurologist : While matters changes on brain imaging is part of the diagnosis of MS, but can well have other causes. You did not mention any of the visual, balance, coordination symptoms that generally begin the diagnostic work up. Diagnosing from an MRI itself is it good medicine. If you have concerns on their significance, see a neurologist for an exam and correct diagnosis. ...Read more
Mri brain nonspecific foci of white matter hyperintensity in periventricular region which in right clinical context could be due to early demyelinatio?
Mri shows areas of altered signal in the periventricular deep white matter..Punctate and nonspecific...What does this mean?
It usually is an: incidental age-related finding due to chronic microvascular changes, but not always. A few small foci are probably nothing to worry about. However, you need to talk to your doctor about what it means, if anything, in your particular clinical situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Age 66; right hearing loss; MRI; dx: mild chronic deep white matter ischemic changes in the periventricular and subcortical white matter. Please expla?
Minimal increased nonspecific signal in brain white matter. unremarkable MRI of the brain. Can this be nothing in a 26 yr old?
Yes: It can be nothing. Lets take a step backwards though. There must have been a reason for getting the MRI. Migraine headache can be associated with tiny punctate white matter changes. Perhaps a bit of clinical information and a look at the scan might be in order. If you can do this I would be glad to help. www.healthtap.com/drericweisman ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does mulitple(atlest 10)tiny t2/flair hyperintense foci in cerebral white matter, predominantly subcortical and deep white matter implies?
See your doctor: Hyperintense white matter signals may mean nothing clinically or could be related to a host of diagnoses, including multiple sclerosis, autoimmune, etc. It has to be correlated to an exam and other testing to make any sense of it, a lot of times it is an incidental finding and means very little clinically. Your doctor will help you understand what this report means to you clinically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can brain lesion and white matter changes mean in Sjögren's and lupus.numbness,confusion,tremor,headache,off balance,weakness,brain fog,brainzaps?
See your neurologist: Without looking at your actual brain scan, it's impossible to tell with certainty the cause or significance of an abnormality. Lupus cerebritis can put white spots on the brain. More importantly, how are lupus and Sjogren's affecting your daily life? The key is improving your quality of life, not treating the appearance of your brain scan. Good luck! ...Read more
Bilateral frontal lobe subcortical white matter showing evidence of small vessel ischemic changes. What does this mean?
Subcortical ischemia: This translates to changes in the smaller blood vessels that lead to loss of blood flow to the area and then scarring. Somewhat like a small silent stroke and frequently seen in people with migraines. The opinions about this have swayed from very worried, to common and mundane and more recently back to looking to stop the damage (help the blood flow, oxygen and glucose status optimize). ...Read more
High signal MRI: This finding in MRI of brain is non-specific. Most of them are due to microvascular disease associated with high blood pressure and diabetes. Some due to old damage. Also can be seen in diseases such as multiple sclerosi. Your doctor will decide if he or she should go further base on your sign and symptoms. ...Read more
Signal alteration involving the deep and Periventricular white matter is nonspecific but may represent minimal chronic microangiopathic change. ?

Mri result very few scattered punctate foci of flair 2 signal abnormality seen in periventricular and subcortical white matter. history concussion, htn?
More likely HTN: Mri scans that demonstrate the scattered periventricular signal changes are likely showing changes from hypertension. This is a typical location for this. Severe concussions may show some signal abnormalities along the white matter tracks (diffuse axonal injury) rather than in the periventricular zones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My MRI found multiple frontal punctate subcortical white matter foci appreciated notable in the frontal lobes. What does this mean?
Sign of Age: You often see these as we get older, especially if you have high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol. The small blood vessels in the brain, like everywhere in the body, can get clogged with cholesterol, especially if you have high blood pressure and diabetes which makes the vessels less elastic. ...Read more
MRI results: scattered nonspecific foci of T2/FLAIR signal hyperintensity w/out associated mass effect w/in the supratentorial white matter. Meaning?
It is hard...: ...to comment on an MRI without knowing clinical details. The radiologist should have put his/her impression in the report and that may provide additional information. However, the physician who ordered the MRI would be the best person from whom to seek an explanation. Wish you the best. ...Read more
A few scattered punctate foci of increased T2/flair signal of the supratentorial white matter which is nonspecific meaning?
See below: It means you may have tiny lesions in white matter where nerve fibers extend away from nerve cells. The increased signals may indicate areas of injury due to ischemia (lack of oxygen) or other causes. They are too small and few in number to be significant. If you are worried, discuss your concerns with your Dr. You can change your diet, exercise regularly, manage stress and quit smoking if you do. ...Read more
Explain: Minimal punctate FLAIR/T2 hyperintensities are present in the subcortical & deep white matter of the cerebral hemispheres.(Otherwise normal)?
Here goes: I am unaware of why you required an MRI of brain, but the described lesions could be present due to migraine, prior head trauma, smoking, prior infections, even MS, but the description is not the common pattern. Does this help, or do you need more involved answers via Concierge visit? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
