What Is Foci In The Brain
Please advise what is the meaning of " lacunar infarct in left periventrikuler and brainstem infark"?
Depends: I'm not sure what you're asking. Some brain rumors are benign, cured by surgery, such as meningioma. Others are malignant but with a slow growth pattern, such as low grade astrocytoma. Others are rapidly growing, usually fatal, such as glioblastoma multiforme. Brain tumors can also be metastatic from other sites, such as a spread of lung or breast cancer. ...Read more

Most are random: All tumors result from accumulated genetic mutations that give a growth advantage to clones of cells. Most strike at random without clear environmental risks. A few familial syndrome (turcot's, neurofibromatosis, von hippel-lindau, lifraumeni, some rarities) feature increased risk for one or more types of brain tumors. If you have a brain tumor, nothing that you did caused it. Wishing you the best. ...Read more
Dumb luck: A few genetic syndromes put people at increased risk for brain tumors. Beyond this, we almost never find a cause. Tumors result from random mutations that become propagated. No one's to blame. Scientists who build careers by demonstrating new truths have failed to identify anything credible. The cell-phones claim has no rational or empirical basis. Best wishes. ...Read more
What is no focal signal changes on T2 images of the of the brain on a MRI report of the brain? Does it mean cerebral microbleeds and hypointensity T2?
No focal: signal changes generally means that there is no abnormality. ...Read more
MRI brain w infarct: This study should be discussed thoroughly with the doc. Diagnosis can't be made w/o clinical correlation. An infarct is a stoke, caused by lack of blood flow to the named areas leading to cell death. A l thalamic infarct should result in either behavioral/cognitive changes or sensorimotor deficits, or both. Internal capsule infarct may result in facial paralysis, arm weakness, & sensory loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My brain MRI showed multiple T2/flair hyperintense foci more numerous than expected for my age (39) Should I consult a neurologist?
Yes: yes I would consult a neurologist.Get a more detailed answer ›
Anatomy: This means that on an MRI or CT scan, the cortex of the brain in the frontal area and parietal area is thinner than the average person. The vertex means near the top of the head/brain. If the person has neurologic symptoms that could be related to those areas of the brain, this could be the cause. It can also be an incidental finding. ...Read more
Brain white matter: "white matter" refers to the nerve fibers that facilitate communication between nerve cells -- along with myelin, a fatty sheath that covers the them. White matter is below the surface layer of the brain, and can be followed all the way down the spinal cord. Strokes can injure these areas; some people have cognitive changes as well as physical symptoms afterwards. ...Read more
Dysphasia: Dysphasia refers to the neurological symptom, usually after a stroke in which the left hemisphere (the speech center) has been damaged and results in a difficulty either understanding or speaking language. There are various types: in some, the patient may not be able to make sense of what he hears, but can talk; in others, the patient understands, but can't find the words to say what s/he means. ...Read more
I'll Try: You know that Hannibal movie where the guy's head was open you see brain hat you see is the grey matter. If you cut deep into a person's brain it looks more white, hence, the white matter. The fancy explanation, grey matter are the cell bodies and white matter are the axons (nerve wires). Your brain is arranged in a way where it just so happens to appear the way you see. ?W ...Read more
