Thank you for posting your query.

MRI findings of brain suggest mild lack of blood flow to the brain (ischemic changes). This could be partly related to giddiness. She would require blood thinners such as aspirin. In addition, risk factors for brain ischemia such as diabetes, high BP, cholesterol, etc should be investigated for, and treated if found.

Cervical spine MRI shows features of mild spondylitis, and it is most likely not related to her dizziness. She needs to do neck exercises and physiotherapy for this.
