Hi there,

Ct scan report clearly showed multiple areas of low densities signifying ischemic areas or areas of the brain with markedly reduced or no blood supply.
The more important of these ischemic areas is the right mca territory acute infarct because it has just occured and something can still be done. The old infarcts have been there already for a certain period of time so there is not much that we can do with these.

What is it in this ct scan result that bothers you? Feel free to ask.
Thank you.

Dr. Eric
