Hi, Thanks for using HCM
In my opinion this CT/MRI report is very much with in normal limits. Mild cerebral atrophy is a condition that causes some changes in the structure of the brain. Several conditions can cause a brain to atrophy, including diseases and ageing. hence this symptom is not a serious condition if it is mild, except that the patient might experience mild memory loss problems. cerebral atrophy is found in the majority of people as they age. It usually progresses with severity as a person gets older. what is more important than the presence of atrophy is whether the degree you have is appropriate for your age.
