Thanks for writing to HCM

According to reports,
Patient is having lacunar(small) infarcts in bilateral basal ganglia. Infarcts are due to decreased blood supply in the region.
There are also scattered areas of high intensity in periventricular region and centrum semiovale,it may also be due to ischemic changes and small vessels are involved.
There are also atrophic changes in brain. This is indicated by prominent CSF spaces. This is normal as compared to age.
Rest of the findings are normal.
Get well soon.

Take Care
