MRI shows mild chronic microvascular ischemic change. Alarming?
I recently had an MRI . Here is aparagraph from the report: A few scattered foci of FLAIR signal hyperintensity in the periventricular and subcortical white matter may represent mild chronic microvascular ischemic change. Is this something to worry about? thank you.
What means ischemic leukoencephalopaty and involutuonal changes in MRI results of a 79 yrs old women?
Thanks for writing in to us.
It means some seepage of the brain fluid into the surrounding white matter and little bit decreased blood supply in few areas. This is age related and might be acceptable as not serious in many people 79 years age.
Hope this helps
