My husband’s most recent MRI showed age inappropriate involutional changes.

My husband’s most recent MRI showed age inappropriate involutional changes. He had a melanoma brain tumor 5 years ago that was resected and followed with radiation. His oncologist just said we should get a referral to a specific neurologist from his nephrologist. We do not want to do any more MRIs as his eGFR is only 23 and worsening due to PKD.

Should I be concerned that he is developing dementia? He has moments of confusion and is becoming incredibly forgetful. He is 56.

Hi I am a 51 year old female with a month history of paresthesias of the left trunk area as well as down my left leg and toes. My FP ordered a MRI of brain. Results showed few punctate foci of abnormal T2 signal hyperintensity within the periventricular and subcortical white matter with largest 1.2 cm. Chronic small vessel ischemic changes versus exterminating type disease. Doctor said normal and just age related but concerned because of symptoms. Now has ordered MRI of thoracic and lumbar spine. What do u think about the MRI results???
