    I am just looking for some opinions on my MRI report. 
    I am typing this exactly how it is on the report (run on sentences and lack of punctuation is copied verbatum). 

    ​Nonspecific nonenhancing punctate inferior right frontal T2 FLAIR hyperintensities, most likely relating to chronic microvascular ischemic white matter change 
    ​No infarct, mass or hemorrhage
    ​No typical findings of perivenular demyelination 

    ​Nonspecific fairly symmetrically distributed nonenhancing inferior right frontal punctate T2 FLAIR hyperintensities bilaterally. CSF spaces are within normal limits for age. No fluid collections or hemmorrhage. No diffusion abnormality. No pathologic intracranial enhancement. Pineal and sellar regions are within normal limits. Vascular flow voids are within normal limits.

    ​No incidental extracranial findings. 

    Any ideas/opionions will be greatly appreciated..

    Hello artaxcantswim,

    I don't know exactly what you are looking for. When I googled some of the things in impression it said that these were regular changes for an elderly healthy person. I am not a doctor though and honestly you need to discuss finding with the a neurologist so he can explain what it all means. A neurologist will have all your records and your history which will make it much easier for him to put all the pieces together. Good luck!

    Hi artaxcantswim,

    I'm sure you're nervous to find out what these results mean, but we can't provide that type of assistance in regards to interpreting medical testing for you, your medical team will have to assist with that.  I hope you get some answers soon!
