What does this MRI report in a heart patient indicate?
You should continue medications as advised and get evaluated too
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
The episode may well be a transient ischaemic attack.
You are also having multiple risk factors for stroke or TIA.
The Mri may be normal in case of TIA but acute ischaemic changes sometimes occur with such episode and thus is considered a stroke.
The findings in your Mri may be stroke or age related changes and require interpretation in light of DWI AND ADC SEQUENCE.
With so many risk factors it is advisable to continue antiplatelet drugs. Blood pressure control, regular exercise and other medications should be continued.
Work regarding risk for stroke like ecg, angiography of neck vessels or carotid doppler should be done.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.

Continue antiplatelet and other medications
Your reports rule out any embolic phenomenon and in view of other risk for atherosclerosis and stroke antiplatelet agents have to be continued along with other medications especially after such a event.
