Hello,

The MRI shows that you have an acute sinus infection that is affecting both sides of the head.

It also shows several small areas of

The radiologist says that those areas are also on both sides of the brain but they could also be due to microscopic blood vessel deterioration in those small areas of the brain which can be seen in people who smoke, have hypertension, high cholesterol, or are diabetic among other things.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
