Brief Answer:
A normal finding in MRI examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

It is a normal finding in MRI examinations, flow void is synonymous with vascular patency, representing a normal flow-related signal loss in vessels that contain vigorously flowing blood.

Hope this answers your question.

Take care.
