Thank you for posting your query.
As per your MRI of brain, there are two findings reported:
1. Moderate diffuse cerebral atrophy- this refers to shrinkage of brain (decrease in brain size
and volume). This occurs normally as one grows older and may not be of any clinical significance. However, if a person has memory loss
, then, it could be a finding of Alzheimer's disease.
2. Small vessel disease- this refers to a loss of blood supply in a few areas of brain (small blood clots
). These are common in people with diabetes
or high BP. Treatment requires use of blood thinners such as aspirin
. In addition, risk factors such as diabetes should be kept under control.
I hope it clarifies. I would be pleased to answer if you have any more queries.
