my mum had a brain scan and this is the resukts, but i dont understand it. since the scan she has been diagnosed with mental health problems, but at the time of the scan i was told she had the onset of dementia.
there are multiple patchy foci of low attenuation in the white matter of both cerebral hemispheres and lacunar infarcts in the region of the basal ganglia. the appearances would be in keeping with moderately severe small vessel ischaemic changes, no acute infract or interarnial heamorrhage demonstrated, there is mild genelised age related cerebral volume loss, no region atrophy
. my mum is 77
My sister did CT scan this year. The finding said: there es patchy low- atteuation within the periventricular and subcortical white matter. and also said in the impression: Nonspecific white matter change could represent small vessel ischemic degenerative change or a possible demyelinating procress. She has every day headache. She very worry with this report. thank you so much for your help.
