Prominent Of The Ventricular System Due To Age Related Parenchymal Atrophy And Compensatory Dilation
Older person: Usually a sign of far advanced age in many older folks and is associated with some decreased mental acuity which is what you see anyway in people with far advanced age. Not reversible. Be nice told people! ...Read more
Atrophy usually refers to the skin-as you get older or if you have had alot of sun in the past-the dermis (that is the layer below the top layer which is called the epidermis) gets thinner and the skin looks more wrinked. Muscles and fat can also get thinner -this is another form of atrophy. Even the top layer gets thinner ...Read more
What R the lasting effects of a years worth of reduced cerebral blood flow due to vasoconstriction?
Does the lack of proper CBF result in cell death?
Abd CT showed severe stenosis with post dilation of celiac artery likely due to compression of arcuate ligament. Can that cause an aneurysm?
Mild prominence of cortical sulci at the top of the calvarium reflecting minor involutional change.MR brain without constrast otherwise unremarkable.
Ventricular system and extra ventricular CSF spaces show mild prominence, suggestive of mild cerebral atrophy.
Patient can't walk. Age 26 years male.?
There is reverse of redistribution in the mid to distal anteroapical wall which may represent ischemia, and left ventricular ejection fraction 60%, and fixed inferior wall defect What do they mean?
Concern: you appear to have a limitation of blood flow to the heart during the stress of the test that you had as well as the possibility of a previous heart attack but with still good heart pump function currently. Please see your cardiologist for follow up of the limitation of blood flow seen on the current test ...Read more
My stress test shows there is " very mild reversible perfusion abnormalities of the left ventricle which may be related to mild ischemia vs artifact?
Is cardiomegaly the enlargement of the cardiac tissue or the dilation of the heart (increase in the volume/space)? confused
Meaning of "the uterus appears irregular with abnormal signal and questionable susceptibility artifact, which may related to post-surgical changes"?
Out of Context: We often defer and do not comment on these 'out of context' and 'incomplete' radiology reports. The job of your physician, the one who ordered this test, is to put all of your history, test results, and examination into a full and detailed explanation of this. Please contact your physician for interpretation of your reports and testing. ...Read more
1.3 by 1.3 by 1.6cm cystic mass related to anterior aspect of the dome of the urinary bladder, a diverticulam of the bladder or its remnant.
Urachael cyst: A cystic structure on top of the bladder usually refers to the urachus. This is a remnant of a channel between the bladder and the umbilicus where urine initially drains in the fetus during the 1st trimester of pregnancy. It obliterates by the 12th week leaving a small fibrous remnant between bladder and umbilicus called the median umbilical ligament. If symptoms noted, resection indicated. ...Read more
In what part of the body does uncontrolled hypertension most likely cause ischemia and loss of function?
Is temporalis muscle wasting after craniotomy due to disruption of blood flow (retraction), or to damage to the motor branch of the trigeminal nerve?
Likely not nerve: Temporalis wasting is probably from transection and reattachment of the muscle, retraction, as well undermining and devascularing it, often with the use of cautery. ...Read more
What diffuse disease of the ethmoid cells is agin noted without change probably related to the polyposis means?
Chronic sinusitis: I assume this refers to the radiologist's interpretation of a ct scan of the sinuses. The ethmoid sinuses are located between the eyes and diffuse disease refers to thickening of tissue within the entire sinus. The thickened tissue generally represents chronic sinus infection although polyps can also cause this. The radiologist sees masses in the nose that look like polyps. ...Read more
Are the small vessels of the pituitary as susceptible to thrombosis as the vessels of the adrenal glands, or is adrenal insufficiency caused by thrombosis limited to adrenal glands only?
Adrenal hemmorrhage: Adrenal hemorrhage can occur for a variety of reasons, one of which is adrenal vein thrombosis. This usually occurs in complicated settings (cancer, hypercoag states). Hemorrhage can destroy the glands. This does not usually occur in the pituitary. Except for sheehan's syndrome: postpartum pituitary hemorrhage due to shock/bleeding in a susceptible pituitary (enlarged and ready for lactation). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diaphragm atrophy as a result of phrenic neuropathy (demyelination). U/s shows significant atrophy. What is time frame before resp. failure?
What medication can be used to build the brain tissue, report says there is evidence of poorly defined area of altered signal intensity seen involving left frontal lobe displayed hyperintense signal on T2W and flair images suggestive of infarct. ?
None: Presumably you didn't just wander into an MRI facility & make an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the MRI for a reason. An MRI is meaningless by itself. You're the patient, not the MRI. You don't even really know what's going on yet. Your doctor is ethically obligated to interpret the MRI results as they apply to you. Brain tissue can't be "built." Once gone, it's gone forever. ...Read more
Dad, 66, is affected with "chronic ischemic changes in periventri white matter" and "disprop prominence of ventri system c/p to cortical sulci" cure?
Chronic ischemia: What you are seeing on the mr are common aging changes seen on mr. As for a "cure" being available, not at the moment and likely years before any solution. ...Read more
