enhancement is noted. Small pineal cyst is seen. T 2 and Flair hypertensities involving both Centrum semiovale, corona radiata and periventricular white matter likely repre
sents ChronicMicrovascular Ischemic Disease. This test was done to investigate recent memory decline and concentration problems. I have suffered from Dystonias and retricollis for years. There is much more now.
